Day 34

Kindness is something I have always been fond of. I love being kind to others it is just part of my nature. One thing I’m not as comfortable with though is receiving it. Hamish has taught me I need to learn how to receive gracefully and not feel like I have to give back in return. It has been a hard lesson to learn.

The kindness that has surrounded Greg and myself during this time has been unbelievable. I have been so blessed with so much love. From a text message, to a listening heart, flowers, home cooked food, meal vouchers, cards, lifts, time, necklace, bracelet, love heart charms, letters, a quilt and candle, crystals, essential oils, cuddles, thoughts, prayers, a picture frame with a beautiful quote, care packages and hampers, chocolates, messages, emails, Facebook and instagram love. Each one of these acts of kindness has touched my heart. Each one has shown me how amazing life really is. Each one has helped me smile through all the tears. Each act of kindness has filled me up. We shouldn’t underestimate how much kindness can lift someone up when they are going through a difficult time.

Thank you Hamish for showing me how truly kind people can be. Thank you for allowing me to accept and receive all of the love and help over the last 34 days. I will continue to be open to kindness and also share it wherever I go.
