Small Acts of Kindness

My daughter, Kathrine, lives in Hillsboro, Oregon. Her neighbor recently had a baby. Kathrine took Izzy (Isabella) into her home for a few days when the new mother and baby came home from the hospital. Kathrine and I also went shopping and bought some much needed items for the new baby: diapers, blankets, a towel and wash cloth set, and a few little outfits. We had such a great time shopping for this wonderful lady and her baby and just seeing the smile on her face was so precious.

My son in-law, Phillip, left the Navy after serving for 10 years. We had been in Pacific City visiting the beaches. On our way home we stopped at a little diner for some lunch. As we were leaving, Phillip noticed a veteran sitting alone at another table eating his meal. Phillip paid for the veteran's food.

Small acts of kindness, but certainly very gratifying.
