Squeezing My Heart Into Little Inkdrops

Whenever I feel a little discouraged about the world and sometimes, the people in it; 7 billion strangers all being selfish and striving after what's best for them, something happens that restores my faith in mankind and human kindness!

Yesterday I received a letter in the mail (there's such a thrill in receiving a hand-written letter, don't you think?) from someone I've never talked to. It was a letter of encouragement and thanks for something I'd done for this lady's son and daighter-in-law and I was so touched by it I had to share that with you all:) It continually blows me away when people are very selfless and thoughtful.
Another story of selflessness, last week I was working and a gentleman came up to the counter and gave me a $50 note to use for the ladies behind him in line, towards their purchases. When I told the ladies that they just could not stop smiling and in turn it made me so happy to be able to be a part of the blessing:)

I apologise for the length of this post but I encourage you to reach out in kindness today because it makes all the difference:) Maybe even post a letter of your own...
