Roller's Philosophical Friday: Kindness

Phew Muleteers!  Last night we had a very close call, it was a terribly wet day (again) with flooding all around.  Our FH nearly got marooned with flooded roads all around her and no way of getting through to us muleteers.... this was nearly disastrous!  Who would bring us our tasty dinner and tidy up our beds?  It was a close thing!

But not to worry Muleteers as FH was rescued by a stranger.  After starting to panic a little bit a kind farmer pulled up next to FH, he was rescuing his cattle from a flooded field and cheerily helped FH get through the flood and escorted her with a wave and a smile down some winding lanes checking all the time that she wasn't going to drown her diesel powered mule.  When she was safe and on better roads he cheerily waved and sent her on her way.  FH came home and told us how his kindness had made her day and how he had reminded her that kindness costs nothing but means everything.

Dinner is served, thanks to kindness!

With this in mind my thought for Friday is:

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.

Our farmer friend would have no idea that he had delivered our FH safe to her muleteers, enabled her to go to work and make someone very happy and of course delivered my laptop to me so that I could be here to tell you all about my philosophical ponderings.

Spread a little kindness this weekend, you never know what the effects might be!
