#withkindnessandlove is a weekly series which is part of my #365daysofkindness project which I am taking on during this year. Each week, I will be sharing some stories of kindness along with some things that have made me smile during the week. Some weeks I might share a quote that has inspired me, or some suggestions for small acts of kindness that I have come across. Here are this week’s little moments of kindness and little things I have loved.
Little moments of kindness
“A colleague of mine did something amazingly kind actually – I work in a private school and am often required to work weekends. I had worked the previous Saturday and several evenings that week when an email arrived… my colleague explained that whilst he didn’t have a family, he imagined that I would want to spend time with mine. He knew that I was meant to work the coming weekend but offered to take my place. I was incredibly touched and will not hear a bad word said against him!” (Laura – Edinburgh Life With Kids)
“I found out last year that my son (10 years old at the time) had gone on a school trip and helped his teacher around all day (the teacher had recently become blind & still adapting). He didn’t leave his side, wasn’t bothered his friends went off without him, but instead guided him around, described things & helped him through the tricky parts. He didn’t tell anyone about it then the school rang a week me or so later to say he was going to receive an award for the kindness shown! I was so proud of him.” (Natalie – Hello Cuppies)
Sharing some blog love
A blog post that I loved
Motherhood: The Real Deal shared a wonderful list of all the different things that it means to be a women. There were so many inspiring comments from a host of different bloggers as they shared a list of things from A to Z. I identified with so many of the things on the list – it was a fabulous reminder of why women are awesome.
