Gratitude List #40

Linking to Alphabet Salad's Gratitude Linkup #40

Be grateful for random acts of kindness



I meant to post this yesterday but got side tracked into other things and then had to call it a day as it got close to midnight. But will post my gratitude list for yesterday as well.

So many things to be grateful for yesterday revolving around buses:
  • A cheery bus driver with a smiling face and a happy greeting (and the driver today was sullen and impatient - I almost fell down he started the bus so quickly)
  • The bus arriving on time yesterday morning (the bus was 15 mins late today)
  • A random act of kindness - the bus driver waited for me to catch the bus home otherwise I would've had to wait another 1/2 hour at least in the dark. Not something I like doing. 

Some other things to be grateful for yesterday:
  • A very warm jacket on a very cold day
  • Lots of support from fellow bloggers
  • Blogspot forum where we can post questions 
  • Very grateful for the replies I got on my posted question 

And some things to be grateful for today:
  • Glad it wasn't raining when the fire alarm went off at work 
  • Glad my new water boiler got installed today - no more worrying if the water will suddenly turn cold in the middle of a shower
  • Glad the plumber fixed my shower as well though it wasn't part of the deal.

I am truly grateful for random acts of kindness.


Warm Regards

  7. I'll be writing another post on gratitude next week. I hear you when it comes to bus drivers. A good one can make your day. A surly one - ruin it! When I draw a good one, I always say "thank you" when I get off the bus! Alana

  8. World can surely use more of such kind bus drivers and plumbers! Thanks Suzy for reminding us there is so much goodness in the world if only we care to look closely and keep that attitude of gratefulness and kindness.

    1. Thanks Beloo. There is truly goodness in the world. We've just conditioned ourselves to look at the negative side. Time to change and focus on all the good.

  9. Remember that movie "Pay it Forward" ? I think that best epitomises the concept of random acts of kindness. Just a single selfless deed can really start a chain reaction, I feel... its just a matter of following through and passing it on someone else..

    1. So true Roshan. We need to pass the kindness baton around and not hold onto it.
