I was in the shop this week at the end of a tiring day trying to reach something at the back of the top shelf but it was just too far, even when I jumped… a tall stranger came by and asked what he could get for me. It was a small gesture of kindness, but it made me smile and instantly lifted my mood.
The year certainly started on a stormy note for Parkes, and with COVID remaining in the daily news headlines, it is easy to get discouraged about what lies ahead for us in 2021. Last year taught us about the value of kindness, and my hope is that all of us will aim to perform as much kindness as we can this year to make our community even better.
Please let us know about your stories of kindness. We would love to publish them!
