That is so true Celtic Radio. A swift talking to when someone is out of line or doing something harmful to themselves or others is needed at times. Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

CHRISTOPHER5 Welcome to Celtic Radio. I really like the way you said that. Lets hope more people become this way. I am kind hoping I will make someone elses day or life happier.

Englishmix how could you not like kindness? It is the light of the world in my opinion. And you certainly are entitled to yours. But I wouldn't want to go through life without giving kindness. I guess I wouldn't want to be here if all were mean to human kind.

Have a great day!

Oh, I was bored and feeling prickly, Rindy. Just trying to agitate.

Although, when people often use the word "kind" it seems to be in a bland whatever sense; rather than the charitable and good sense.

Sadly one does not have to look far to find people in need of a "hand up". Also, if you are observant, you will see that most around them are too preoccupied to notice. THAT is sad!!!

Some posting here I know better than others but I see people that truly care.

It is strange though that from the 6th of Feb. to the 7th of Dec. 2010 this topic died. I can assure one and all that the need remained strong in the areas I visited. I too could have posted and did not.

Maybe this could be a late new years resolution.

Slàinte,

Random Act of Kindness from someone- I work with mentally and physically challenged who have little (if any) income. Some come to us with only the clothes on their back. Special thanks goes out to the family who, instead of having a yard sale, donated all their unwanted clothing to the center.

A little girl at my Irish dance school (she's just nine) is one of those people with a real talent for dancing. She competes a lot and is nearly in championships after just three or four years. But her parents lost their jobs, one a year ago, and the other a few months ago. The girl was on the brink of having to quit dancing, which would have been terrible for her, she loves it so much. I don't know them that well, so there wasn't much I could do, but what I did do is this: I made a charm bracelet for the little girl with good-luck and prosperity symbols on it, saying prayers as I did so. I gave the bracelet to her, and a few days later I found out her father found a job and she could continue dancing. I have no proof what I did is in any way connected to the girl's father finding a job, but you never know, maybe it did.

This thread is great. My entire life has been focused on the light, not dark side of life. There are millions of examples I could give of people doing good works.

Most recently, my sister impressed me. She has a lot of health issues but does her best to give smiles and hugs. She and her husband live on a 'Green Acres' type of farm. Her husband grew up without plumbing or electricity while my sister was a city kid with every toy she ever wanted.

My parents are now elderly and were no longer safe in their home. My sister decided that she would have them come live with her. My father has Alzheimer's and my mother has had several strokes that cause significant dementia. My mother grew up in a very affluent family and the thought of using paper napkins vs cloth was unthinkable.

But my folks seem to be happy on this rundown, old farm with all the critters running about. My sister has done an amazing job of taking care of them. My brother-in-law and I were busy for a week or so cleaning, painting, and installing carpeting, preparing the house for my folk's arrival.

My brother-in-law is only 35 years old and now he has his 80 year old in-laws living in his house. Quite a gift.

Acts of kindness, be they random or planned, are beautiful. I see little ones just abotu everyday, but every now and again I see something that brings tears to my eyes.

When I was little, my favorite Christmas tale (besides the nativity) was an Irish tale about cobbler elves who snuck into people's home mending or giving shoes. I find that kindness has the most profound impact when it is unexpected and/or from someone unknown. When I do something, I try to be discrete, anonymous if possible. I draw and write quotes on napkins in places where I eat with encouraging words or humor. I don't know who finds them, but I hope it does something pleasant to find a little token from someone who cares.

I fear that we have reached a point in this country where random acts of kindness are on the decline. Say it ain't so - does anyone have one to share.

Thankfully...Random acts of kindness are not on the decline, they just have a bad press agent. Bad news has and will always sell newspapers and drive television reports. If people feel all is right with the world, then no one would buy all the "trash gossip magazines" or stayed glued to the news channels for the latest tragedy, killing spree, or racially motivated "disturbance" going on.
We (America) are no longer willing or have the desire to "stop to smell the rose." However we will drop all to grab our cells phone to record a violent public melee or whatever tragedy we happen upon, so we can be the first to post it on Facebook!
We need to increase the growing trend of paying it forward. It helps to soften the heart and increase self awareness of other's situations in life. Ultimately driving home the point that life is much easier and more rewarding when we realize that in reality it is a team sport and that we are not as alone as we often let us over selves believe...

I know I should have been doing this a whole lot sooner but the beginning of this year whenever I see someone wearing a Veteran cap I make a point to go over to that person and thank them for their service. Just to see the light of surprise in their eyes that someone actually cares enough to say thank you means a lot to our veterans. I am not patting my back by any means but I think our veterans and active military are unappreciated and not thanked enough for the sacrifices they make.

So true Desert Rose.....I remember seeing the returning soldiers from, Vietnam being spat upon and called horrible names. And it was some of those very same soldiers who went out of their way to make sure returning soldiers from the middle east got the warm welcome home they deserved. So I agree with your habit and likewise it can be extended to police and fireman as well...another group of under appreciated people who do an important job which often goes un-thanked....

we maybe full time cattle ranchers and celtic music lovers. but we also rescue and rehab wildlife. we work closely with the Forest Service in our area. we have rescued everything from baby birdies to hand feed and release when ready to fly. we have 8 baby barn swallows that fell out of their nest that we are hand feeding right now. the biggest rescue 2 years ago was a baby bear cub that was orphaned by a hunter. we so enjoyed bottle feeding him until he was transferred to a large animal rehab center. we may work at least 12-14 hours a day. but we will always stop the equipment to wait for or help even a little garner snake. KUDOS TO ALL THOSE WHO STILL HAVE THE CURIOSITY TO CARE AND HELP THERE FELLOW MAN OR ANIMAL.

QUOTE (WizardofOwls @ 07-Apr-2005, 08:31 PM)
I can't think of anything I'VE done to relate here, but I thought I'd relate an act of someone ELSE'S kindness to me!

My wife and I have been having some finacnial problems for about a year. Between sicknesses (lost work, doctor visits, prescriptions, etc) and unexpected bills, we just can't seem to get our feet solidly back under us. Recently, my wife changed jobs. She left Wendy's about a week ago and went to our local Wal-Mart making $2 more an hour and moving form part-time to full-time, so we're hoping things will turn around for us now.

But back to the act of kindness...

During the worst of the problems last summer, we barely even had enough money to pay our bills, much less get groceries. We were jsut barely getting by. And getting anything extra was out of the question. At the plant where I work, we get our check stubs every Thursday, but we can't actually use the money until Fridays due to direct deposit.

At work we each are assigned our own personal lockers for safety shoes, safety glasses and other personal belongings. These lockers have vents to let the lockers air out.

Well, apparently I have a special friend at work, because every Thursday for about two months, $20 would just mysteriously turn up in my locker! Someone must have been inserting it through the slots in my locker door! I never found out who the mysterious money came from, and apparently they don't want to be found out, so I'm leaving it alone. But I thank God for my friend! I refused to use that money for necessities! We split it three ways between me, my wife and daughter just so that we get ourselves a little something! Boy, it sure put smiles back on our faces during a really hard time!

Thank you, Lord, for such thoughtful friends!

Wow!! the last part of your story is interesting. i wish i had such a mysterious yet helpful and much needed friend.. i find myself in situations where i give give give and give more yet none of the people i dedicate my all to ,seem to even care about me. No one actually fights for me as much as i do..

i recently supported my ex girlfriend despite the ache she has caused me over the years we dated,
she did not have a place to lie down after her current guy kicked her out in the middle of the night.
He happens to live a few miles from where am set up. she called in tears saying that she's been thrown down the stir case by the guy..i took an Uber went to get her, nursed her, fed her and gave her a place to sleep..i believe that can be called an act of kindness..right?
