I just wanted to share something with you and to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful thing you promote… Kindness.
A while ago I ordered some of your adult kindness cards and popped them in my wallet for future use. Today I used my 1st cards (and now I wonder why I waited soooo long to use them). I made 2 elderly ladies cry with happiness.
I was at the shops getting a few essentials. As I was walking out there were these 2 ladies sitting on the bench seats with their heads down and they looked sad. I got 2, $5 dollar notes and 2 cards out of my wallet, walked up to them and told them about the Ripple Kindness Project and gave both money and a card. They were sure that I wanted something in return and when I assured them I didn’t, they were so happy, grateful, overjoyed and more, it’s just so hard to explain.
I chatted with them for as long as I possibly could before I had to leave. The looks and tears on their faces said it all though. From me who suffers severe depression and can barely live week to week on my pay, I have learned an extremely valuable lesson today. It’s not what I have or how I am feeling; it’s the way I present myself to people and what I can offer to a stranger from deep within.
The feeling I got inside today I just can’t describe but I know I have you to thank for it. 🙂
