Wow…two posts in one day…I must be feeling better, and I’m on a roll.
Truth is, I could not let the Small act of kindness I received today to go unnoticed.
I’ll preface it with what happened just before this act of kindness.
I was in my kitchen, doing dishes, and one of my children had gone out the back door..all the sudden my child asked me to call the police, because a lady was being beaten behind the church (just next door to our house), and she was calling for someone to call the police.
Well, as you know I and my children were abused, so it does not set well with us to see or hear others in similar situations. I dialed 911 and the police were there quickly…the only thing was, that my children (2 of them now because of the commotion), went around the house and to the church to see if they could help…That made the man put her in the car and they started to leave…The Police made it just in time to block one of the driveways. Then because he had nowhere to go, the man backed up to go around the other side…my children stood there (WHAT WERE THEY THINKING), and me watching from the porch, could only worry. But another police car came before the car got back around the church.
Well…the long and the short of it is…they took the man, and the lady looked horrible…They took her in an ambulance. He had really done a number on her. All I could do was pray that she will be brave enough to follow through now, on pressing charges. I know full well the fear in her right now…she has a long road ahead.
So much for my previous post today of De-Stressing…That threw me for a loop. I got inside and was shaking like a leaf.
Then…out of the blue…not related to the situation that happened…someone came to my door and gave me these…
Wow…such a suprise…and it was for no other reason than to brighten my day…I didn’t even know the person who gave them to me. They just said it was to cheer me up. Wow..such a small act of kindness, and such a Big result.
It was an unexpected De-Stresser…and they sit on my table now (unfortunately I do not have a vase…don’t get them enough to have one), and put a smile on my face.
Thanks to whomever it was that gave them to me…I know they may never read this, but I had to post it to show my gratitude. At least you will all know that there are those out there doing things to brighten someones day, for no other reason other than it’s a kind thing to do.
I hope they receive something just as wonderful soon in their lives…God Bless!
Gives me hope…we all need that!
Thanks for Hearing!
