Only 6 Days to go so how about A Act Random of Kindness thread.

It's the season of Good Will, so if you find yourself doing a Act Random of Kindness for another person. Why not share your Act or Random Kindness with fellow members on here. Tell us about it. :-D

"Random acts of kindness, senseless acts of beauty"

i was thinking of that phrase yesterday when watching 'The Hobbit'

not the exact quote perhaps from Gandalf but close I think

"Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love." :-)

Very well put RR :-D

I´m not sure if this is an act of kindness or pure madness.
I am looking after a neighbours 3 yes THREE dogs until the 2nd Jan. So instead of shuffling my 2 to friends when I visit mother I now have 5 to sort out.
(note friends 3 will not be staying with me but in their own home :-D)

Presumably you also have to exercise them Uzzi so you will be keeping fit at the same time. Well done though, not many people would take on responsibility for 3 dogs.

Uzzi that does count as a Act of Random Kindness. Good on you for doing that & may you have a great Christmas.

Gave someone a pound coin for a shopping trolley today, as they didn't have one.

Did all the procurement for a colleague today as, true to form, no-one has had proper training for anything - and procurement was my job once, therefore I can do it much quicker than him.

I helped an old lady onto the train today.

PS I just realised She did not want to get on the train... She'll be in Crew now. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
