a friend gave me a ride even though i didnt ask for one

A friend took me out for coffee yesterday and it was lovely!

The other day, I texted a friend to tell her I was feeling down. She immediately called me and wanted to chat and make me feel better. She gave me so much space to have my feelings and ended up cheering me up a lot! It was so great to be reminded I have friends who are kind to me when I struggle to be kind to myself.

20 years ago I went to a coffee shop. When I went to pay for my coffee, the barista told me another customer had already paid for it! All these years later, I still remember this moment.

The other day I was in a coffee shop when an older man dropped his pen. He didn’t notice but another woman did and silently picked it up and put it back on his table. He thanked her profusely. She was so gracious and they ended up having a little chat. It was lovely to witness and reminded me that kind people are everywhere!

My friend made me a special dinner of pakoras! I told her I wanted to try them and she made me a whole plate! So lovely!

I was prevented from committing suicide when I was 29 by a fellow Samaritan who persuaded me to talk about why I wanted to do this.
A few years later, I was able to pay this kindness forward for a young lad who looked like he wanted to jump off London Bridge.

Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful partner and sisters-in-law. You all made it through the birthing and raising of your children, and they are still answering your phone calls !! (LOL)

I recently gave someone I used to work with a glowing reference. They absolutely deserved it. And just found out that they were offered the job at a higher rate than they initially negotiated! Woohoo! That news so made my day!
