It’s always rewarding to give back once in awhile!
There are no “small acts of kindness”, kindness is kindness, and when it’s shown, it makes a big difference.
There are some days during my kindness challenge when I don‘t have a plan–when I let inspiration find me, when I spend the day looking for an opportunity to help someone.
But that wasn’t supposed to be how today went.
I had a plan–for weeks I had been preparing for an act of kindness and today I was looking forward to finishing it. I was excited; my car was packed with goodies.
There was just one problem: the people who I needed to meet with…they weren’t in today. Nope–all gone, celebrating their annual Christmas party.
Whoops. In all my plans, it seems I forgot one tiny, little, yet extremely important detail: calling to confirm. To be, I didn’t honest I didn’t think it was necessary…every other day the people are there.
It seems fate was trying to tell me it had other plans for me today.
So I came…

The true definition of helping out another!
I’ve just seen today’s Daily Prompt, (click here for more details) and decided I’d actually write this one.
A few years ago, I worked for a high street retail store in my hometown. When I went to hand in my notice – I was moving – I was offered a Supervisor position.
I was pretty shocked, especially as I hated this job and the majority of the people that both worked and shopped there.
There was however, an upside. I knew a colleague of mine had been gunning for the Supervisor role ever since she started, but as these roles usually are based on qualifications, she wasn’t offered it. So, I decided to do something kind (for a change.)
I explained to my boss that I was flattered, but couldn’t (and wouldn’t) take the position, but my colleague would be perfect for the role.
Later on, said colleague announced…

Dog’s too…have hearts
A great story, guided by a great heart…
I looked at my clock. It silently mocked me with it’s fluorescent seven, four, and eight. I finally decided I wasn’t going to play its game anymore. Who needs to wait for an alarm when I’m so excited to start my day?
Why was I so bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning? Because, I had a fundraiser to go to! At school I’m in a club that raises money, collects supplies, and travels to the Dominican Republic to help improve education. This is the second year I’ve been in the club and I can honestly say that joining was one of the greatest things I’ve done in my short, but exciting college career. The people are beyond friendly, the club is a tight-knit community, and the cause is inspiring.
The club consists of several committees. I’m on the fundraising committee and one of our events this semester was to go a…

Volunteers are often unnoticed modern day hero’s, who’s empathy holds no bounds…
I write often about supporting your local shelter, volunteers and staff. For Thanksgiving I made sure our local shelter staff/volunteers were not alone cleaning cages. (it happens more than you think) I was a non-kill Shelter Director the physical and mental demands can be horrific. Two-Three days a week I had 128 cat & dog cages with One of me. If I was luckily I had 3-4hrs before the shelter opened. Keep in mind medications (de-wormers ect..), QT procedure and emergency issues needed to be addressed before opening, with me alone thinking, ‘Someone HELP I need an adult! Hell most days I would have cried in joy for physically handicapped Alzheimer help.’
I was able to become a OnePerson-CatPillPopping Kung-rescue Master. I worked seven days a week. Holidays!? Animals needs don’t stop eating or pooping for holidays. Some shelter dogs/cats only get out once a day while their cages are…
