Little acts of kindness

Little acts of kindness happen all the time, unnoticed, unsung. While I’m sitting here in Planet Organic, a lady and her elderly mother, quite frail, have come in: the daughter is asking her mother what she would like, they’re having a treat together – something simple, like coffee and cake; but the daughter is being so kind, there’s no rush, they’re just being together. And of course it’s full-circle – the child taking care of the parent. Spending time and simple kindnesses make all the difference.

Oh no – they just got settled and now there’s a leak overhead – water is pouring in and we all have to move! The only other place to sit is up some very steep steps. Ah, just when you want everything to be perfect, life steps in… But it doesn’t matter; kindness and togetherness are stronger!
