Simple acts of kindness

I went up to the village shop this morning (goodness knows when I’ll be able to go again) and a nice young woman working there said, ‘We must all look out for each other, mustn’t we?’ When I got home, I found a note in my letterbox from my young neighbours, saying I wasn’t to hesitate to ask for anything I needed and giving all their contact details.

These simple acts of kindness restore one’s faith in human nature.
