I Know There are Still Kind People In This World

People never forget that helping hand, especially when times are tough! We too often underestimate the power of touch, a smile or a kind word encouragement.

It never ceases to amaze me that there are some extraordinarily good people in the world who, through a single gesture of kindness separate themselves from the norm! I am not just talking about long established friendships which you celebrate in giving to each other. I am speaking about a person who has no invested interest nor claims any favours from you. A stranger, who crosses your path, holds out a hand, shows you unequivocal kindness without any reciprocal ulterior motive.
A person who makes permanent foot prints on your path of life and allows you the luxury of believing again in the human race.
There have been other individuals who went out of their way to create a moment of kindness, to save the day, to make you smile. Priceless gestures of holding a door open, or helping with heavy bags, or simple eye contact of humanity.

To all those individuals who show kind guidance and patience and allow others to regain their self-esteem, self-worth and realize their total worth as a human being, eternal gratutude and thanks would never repay their generousity!

Unspoken hero's in the silent world of "kindness" perpetually glow in all our hearts and help us put one foot infront of the other to proceed down our path of life.


  1. Michele, you are right on girl! Angels come in all shapes and sizes :)

  2. I have had the pleasure of meeting individuals like that myself. You should know that you are one of those individuals.

  3. Very true and good to be reminded of! Your writing gets to the heart of the matter and makes your point simply and eloquently!

  4. first blog i've read tonight - loved it. look forward to reading some more of your writing.

  5. Nicely said. In Canada there was a thing going for random acts of kindness. For example you'd go to pay for your coffee to find that the person in front had already paid. Little things go a long way :)

  6. You definitely get it!!! Very good to know... THX

  7. I like being Anonymous ... lol <3

  8. One hundred percent agree, Mish! The world needs more kind and gentle souls. I just heard about the "knockout game." Here's an example of what's wrong with society. That something like that could be called a "game." SICK. Thank you for putting the perspective where it needs to be.
