Kindness

In this mad, mad world, where a lot of the population are obeying the rules and a crazy few are it seems taking delight in disobeying them it is so good to come across acts of kindness.   I had one today and I do hope he doesn't mind my sharing it with you.
Today friend W and I should have been going up over the top of the Pennines to Kirkby Lonsdale to meet our friends P and D who were coming over from Windermere.   We intended to lunch as we always do and catch up on any news.   But of course none of us could go and we were all disappointed.   But this morning I had a postcard from D.   I would like to tell you what he said.

Sorry the picture of the Ranunculus is on its side but it is a beautiful image of one of my favourite flowers.  He intends to send me a card from this collection from The Royal Horticultural Society each week for the next twelve weeks (he has twelve of these cards in a collection) during the self isolation period.   He says 'hopefully I will not be sending you the whole box'.   It is small acts of kindness like this that more than wipe out the images of the thoughtless and stupid behaviour of a minority.   It raised my spirits more than he will ever know.

That is a lovely thought, it must be very hard for you not to see your friends at the moment.

What a lovely thing to do! I wonder what flower will be dropping through your letterbox next week?

What a lovely idea.We had a letter in the post this morning from our 12 year old granddaughter.What a great surprise and it certainly lifted our spirits.Take care.x

Librarian said...

Aren't such things the loveliest surprises? Your friend D is very kind, and I wonder whether he knows that Ranunculus are among your favourite flowers (they feature high on my imaginary list, too, and were in the bouquet O.K. gave me for our anniversary a few weeks ago).

JayCee said...

Although the cards are very beautiful it would be good if he didn't need to send all of them and that you can all meet up aga in before the box is empty.

the veg artist said...

That is such a nice thing to do. A thoughtful friend - thinking of you.

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

How kind of your friend to do this to cheer you up and keep in contact.

gmv said...

Sometimes we forget it takes only a small token to make a big difference.

Jules said...

That's such a thoughtful gesture. X

Gwil W said...

Most people are very kind. It's the few that gets the human race a bad name, My next door neighbour pushed 3 bottles of beer under the garden fence. I washed them with a tissue sprinkled with alcohol from the bathroom cabinet and enjoyed them all.

Sue in Suffolk said...

What a lovely thing to do.
I hope you will get to see your friends before too long.
Stay well

Bonnie said...

How thoughtful of him to send you such a beautiful card! And also something to look forward to each week. We forget how helpful it can be to have something to look forward to.

Look at the beauty around you and smile!

There is a lot of truth in the old saying that it's an ill wind that blows no good....There are many acts of consideration and kindness coming out of this horrible situation. Be well, dear Weaver!

I look every day at the websites for Tank's Good News and The Good New Network. They always have stories that make me feel better about the world. There's another site called Upworthy which my daughter recommends.

As Dickens said (sort of), The best of times and the worst of times.

Joanne Noragon said...

Ranunculus are among my favorite flowers. I forget them until I see them. Your friend's kindness is lovely.

Ruth said...

What a sweet and thoughtful gesture. It made me think of Elizabeth Browning's "There are nettles everywhere, but smooth, green grasses are more common still; the blue of heaven is larger than the cloud." I hope we all find blue skies among these cloudy, sad days.

Doc said...

What a very kind and good friend.

Just in case you didn't get my email Weave, here is what I said:

You should be able to find your dashboard by going to the place where you actually write your blogs.
Once you have found it, go to SETTINGS.
Then to POSTS COMMENTS AND SHARING.
From there you will see WHO CAN COMMENT.
Click the box named USER WITH GOOGLE ACCOUNT etc.

You have probably set it to ANYONE INCLUDING ANONYMOUS - Get rid of that!

Tom Stephenson said...

Suggestion: If you go on someone else's blog post, you will probably find 'dashboard' in the right hand side of the top bar (in small letters), next to the name of your own blog title or email address. It's like that for me.

Rachel Phillips said...

Small kindnesses and thoughts are as nice as big kindnesses and thoughts. I have received a few over the past couple of days.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Thanks to you all - small kindnesses every one. Let's all keep in up and rise above Anonymous! Actually he/she does me a favour referring to me as a boomer - I go back long before that!

I have always loved sending postcards but have been hesitating at the moment because I understand from expert reporting on the medical evidence (eg Norman Swan’s Coronacast podcast) that this coronavirus has been found to live 24 hours on cardboard (longer on plastic and stainless steel). Australia Post can usually be relied on to take longer than that. But if the postie had sneezed on it? Or even touched something else contaminated? I’d just hate to cause anyone harm when I was intending to lift their spirits. Jean

my husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr jeffrey can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr jeffrey . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:
