Restoration

We all need to be reminded that there is indeed good in the world. 
I came across this article from Kelle Hampton's blog and wanted to share it. 
It's worth a click because it show the images of people being kind and generous.  And images can be so powerful.
Perhaps one of your good deeds will be featured here next year.
What's the kindest thing you've ever witnessed?

  1. Thank you for reminding us, TV. We've all been so affected by recent tragedies and I admit I've been more focused on what's wrong with this world. It's good to see that there is still a lot of light going around.

  2. I love your question. Years ago, I was driving to work at dawn, through a tough neighborhood, on a soul-freezing cold morning. I stopped for some shivering shadowy children crossing the street to the bus stop. A small boy was crying from the earliness and frozen air. Behind him, an older boy stepped forward and put an arm around him. Nothing material was given, just encouragement, kindness. Don't know if it's the kindest thing I ever saw but it ranks right up there.

  3. That is a really good question....so many kind little acts like thoughtful gifts, someone paying for the people behind them in line, my MIL gave her sister a kidney....lots of kind acts everyday thank God. Merry Christmas to you friend!

  4. We do need to focus on all the kindness that is out there...I lost my pocketbook last week, and I just received a phone call from the police that some "children" returned it. However, even before this week's events, I've been amazed to see how dedicated people are to others through charities and the generous giving of their time. In college, I used to help with Habitat for Humanity. It is by far, one of my favorite organizations because they build homes for people who could never afford a place of their own, and they restore crime infested, rundown neighborhoods to places of beauty and hope.
