Random Act of Kindness.

As I mentioned on my SoCs post today I was at my niece’s wedding in Brighton yesterday. It was a beautiful day and it was wonderful to have all the family there.

Now my brother the father of the bride told me a lovely true story.

Everyone had left for the registry office leaving my brother and his daughter to wait for their taxi. The taxi had been order and so all they to do was wait for it.

Unbeknown to my brother the

Taxi firm he had used to take him and his daughter to the wedding, computer’s had crashed. They were just one of 140 people waiting for a taxi that was not comming. The drivers were in the dark. My brother and niece were not in a good place either. Standing on the pavement outside the house panicking.

Well my niece was getting stressed as were the bride’s maids not to mention my brother.

Then the most amazing thing happened a total stranger stopped his car and offered them a lift. This random act of kindness made the day. My brother tried to pay this wonderful person but the guy would hear non of it. He told my brother to make a donation to charity.

So whoever you are wherever you are thank you for saving the day.

    Ronovanwrite’s has come up with a beautiful idea for a Thursday Post. He would like us to think about what Kindness means to us. What do we see as real kindness. Now I did not see his prompt until late this evening but I have thought and remembered this post. It is about how a complete stranger helped my brother and his daughter out. Thank you Ronovan for this lovely idea. He has name it Kindness is my Comfort Zone.
