As I was driving home along a country dirt road
just before Christmas
I came across a car accident which had just happened.
On the side of the road and
standing in a paddock next to a car on its roof
was a very distressed but unharmed young man.
He was a victim trying to avoid a crash.
As I lived quite close to the scene
I took this young man home
so that we could help him to make arrangements about the car etc.
as anyone would.
as Christmas Day approached so too did this young man, Dale
came knocking at our door with his father bearing a gift of gratitude.
Thus came this wonderful act of kindness out of the blue
without any sense of expectation.
Aren't we surrounded by wonderful human beings
who can give and take
and establish a system of real humanity
actually based on kindness!
May Your New Year too
many acts of kindness
May happiness, inspiration and creativity
