Kindness Both Ways

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pay It Forward.”

Tell us about a time when you responded to an act of kindness with one of your own.

Thanks for the prompt suggestion, roses4151!

A few months back I had the most awful migraine. I wanted to die. It was a Friday and my husband was in meetings, he was not taking calls. BFF was out of town and an hour’s drive away. Already having overdosed on painkillers with no effect I was a literal mess. My head felt like it was about to explode. I texted a random message to a friend from my church who lives close by. Can you take me to the dr pls? Her car was being serviced so she had no car at home. She phoned around and organised a car from another friend. She collected me and took me to the doctor, waiting with me until I could be attended to. Having no family in Sydney means we have to sometimes rely on others when it is family we would normally turn to.

A few weeks later we were able to help out when her daughter was desperate for help on a school IT project. Clever IT husband-of-mine was able to be the hero-of-the-day!

  1. What a great friend!
    On the migraine thing, there’s a new drug out there–an injection similar to an epi pen that has an immediate effect on migraines. My daughter has one. They stop the migraine in its tracks.

  2. Aw! All’s well that ends well and your experience is not one we’d term….’No good deeds goes unpunished’, yours ended well, the way it oughta! 😊😄
    Plus, at the end of the day; the amount of love we make, is the amount of love we take! One good turn deserves another and acts of kindness, however little we think they are, go a very long way! Thanks for sharing Vonita! 😃
