Nurturing Thursday 52

Above is the link to a heartwarming story, that was shared on my Facebook newsfeed this morning.

I worked in Social Housing for many years, supporting those less able to provide for themselves ~ more often than not through no fault of their own. This experience taught me that misfortune can befall any one of us, at any given moment ~ perhaps that’s even more true in the current economic environment. But, sadly, it’s still not a common belief.

So this video gave me goosebumps ~ yeah, ok, maybe it’s somewhat contrived ~ but that doesn’t dilute the message. Acts of compassion ripple outwards and treating others with respect is nurturing all round.

Happily retired and living each day as it comes. I have enough, I am content. It doesn't get better than that! ๐Ÿ˜

  1. I’m not ashamed to say I almost cried then Jacqueline. However I might when you catch me because I pinched it for my new Buthidars blog instead of reblogging it as I’d intended. I grovel for forgiveness.
