I’ve been busy handing out lots of my random acts of kindness envelopes this past week. Most recently was envelope number 11 and it was quite spontaneous!
If you are new to my blog – When my loved ones raised £500 for my husband and I to treat ourselves following my operation we made the decision to use the money to do random acts of kindness for complete strangers…
We didn’t want to profit from my diagnosis and the idea of sharing the love and kindness given to us filled us with so much more happiness than spending it on something ever could.
So since then we’ve been handing out envelopes with either a £10 or £20 note inside.
There are now 32 envelopes in total thanks to two additional anonymous donations of £30 from the ‘lace maker’ and £40 from ‘D&L’, both of which I am extremely grateful for.
Some of you already now that this week I was involved in a minor car crash (no one hurt..just two bruised but repairable cars!)
The person who hit my car was an elderly woman and, understandably, she was quite shaken by the incident.
While we waited for her daughter to arrive to help her move her car we were causing a bit of road blockage. With traffic piling up, there was nothing we could do for over half an hour but wait.
During this time there were a lot of angry (and nosey!) drivers passing us by but no one stopped to offer help. It’s sad isn’t it?
That was until one woman drove past, turned her car around and came to offer assistance. I was so taken aback that she was the only person to offer help and, in turn, a random act of kindness of sorts that I knew I had to give her an envelope. So as she was returning to her car I chased after her with an envelope.
She seemed more than a little shocked as I handed her the envelope and ran back to my car.
If say it was well deserved…kindness deserves kindness 💖
Love and light, Fi xx
