Random acts of kindness.
The kindness of strangers.
It’s wonderful, it lifts us up, and I’m pretty certain that it happens far more often than we mention it.
So, I’m mentioning it here.
Last night, on a forum, I mentioned that it looks like I’ve got bronchitis, and that I might be a bit grumpy because of that.
I didn’t expect anything. A few people to tell me to get well soon and send me good wishes, because, even though we don’t actually know each other, we’ve been talking to each other for a while, and it’s a nice thing to say.
And I did get those. I also got more.
One guy went to YouTube to look for something cute to cheer me up, and came back with this.
Another forum member, a woman, sent me the cute kitty picture you see above.
Like I said, we don’t really know each other. We talk to each other on the forum, mostly about work, and sometimes we share interesting stuff. We all protect our privacy, both because of the rules, and because we choose to. Obviously, there was nothing to gain from this. Just nice people being nice.
And their kindness should be mentioned, so I’m doing it.
