Small acts of kindness

Small acts of kindness are incredible…

Small acts of kindness are incredible. It’s amazing when something can completely turn around your attitudes and feelings. When somebody does something for you that restores your faith in humanity, that floods a dark room with light.

Generally, these things work best when someone is loving you in the way that you respond to best.

I got home last night, exhausted from a long day’s work and a 90 minute MMA session, with only cooking, cleaning and learning songs for a gig I have next weekend to look forward to, and my lady had come round my flat whilst I was out and vacuumed it. She ran me a bath, got me a drink and generally bustled around taking care of me. I don’t think I’ve ever been quite so touched by a simple act of generous spirit.

Makes me think; like the Bible says, we should “never tire of doing good”, ‘cos next time we do, it could affect someone like it affected me last night.
