As last Sunday was Mother’s Day, after a wonderful brunch with family we went out hugging (of course). It continues to amaze us that in one day we can meet and share hugs with people from as close as Victoria and as far as Australia, France, Iran, Italy and Uruguay (to name a few). We’ve already shared hugs with Ambassadors from 22 countries this year (at least 83 countries in total, so far) and we’re only just getting started! We also hugged our very first Frost Princess!! (She gives wonderfully warm hugs).
But this post isn’t just about us. The world is filled with acts of kindness every day. Although far too few of them make the news, we wanted to share two such stories with you.
The first is about Aidan Bailey, a young man from eastern Iowa. Although he’s had two double-lung transplants, he doesn’t allow that to slow him down. Every one of his days is focused on what he can do for others. His story is here:
The second story concerns Tinney Davidson, a woman who lives in Comox, BC. Every day for several decades, the now 88-yr-old great-grandmother waved to the kids on the school bus as they went by. When she finally had to leave her home for a senior’s residence, the students responded en masse. Her story is here:
Okay, that’s it for now. Remember, there are no small acts of kindness, only great acts done simply. What do you have to give?
Hug someone you love today. Or a stranger. Or, preferably, both!
