Pay it Forward
There are som many small things we can do to creat happiness and joy for each other and sometimes make life easier. It has not to be a huge effort, even small actions count.
I had borrowed a trailer for my car in order remove waste from the garden. I knew my closest neighbor had cut their hedge and a couple of plastic bag with leaves and branches were left in the garden. I still had room in the trailer so I took them as well. Guess how happy they got when coming home in the evening.
Some other neighbors have small kids and mine are now grown up. I remember how busy I was when the kids were small and how difficult it was to go shopping having te kids along. So - I offer to have the kids with me for an hour or so when they go shopping. Or having dinner with the partner all alone.
So the next time I have run out of eggs or suger or whatever when cooking, I have no problems to lend some from a neighbour.
