Kindness Returned

Last month we had a fantastic random encounter with a group of guys who were on a canoeing adventure across the three territories- 4000km in just four months.  You can read about it here.

Now it seems my boys have been spoiled in return!  Today we received a parcel in the mail full of books for the boys from Jan, the mother who first sent me an email saying her son would be coming through Faro.  Also, waiting in my inbox when we came back from a week away was a gift certificate for amazon from Becky, another mother.  We used the gift certificate to buy some science experiment and paper airplane folding books for the boys and a fridge calendar for myself.

Thank you Jan and Becky for the unexpected gifts!  Your kindness is very much appreciated!

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.

Pouring over the new books!

This is so true. Paying it forward is more or less my credo.
