    I got back on an elevator to help a very elderly man get on and rode with him to his floor to make sure he got off and where he was going ok

    • I bet he had the biggest smile, Toni! What a great opportunity to take a moment to appreciate an elder.♥

  • Does not grounding my kids count? 😉

    I was laid up in bed for the most part, but I was on the receiving end of much kindness!

    • Hahaha, you’re funny, Carrie-Anne!
      ~Glad to hear those “receiving stories” too!
