“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

Parents were away for a month. Mail carrier kept our mail until they came back. Mom gave her a gift basket and got this note. Makes you think about the battles people have each day. And how the little things can make a difference. (Story, image via imgur, Reddit)

Your thoughtfulness is appreciated beyond explanation in words. I recently got divorced after 25 years of marriage and after being homeless for the last three years just last week got my own apartment. You literally put the first food in my cupboards! And for that I am so grateful!! Serving people like you makes my job so rewarding. And it’s a daily pleasure! May God bless you & keep you safe at home and in your travels, always.

Thank you so much!!

Hugs & Blessings,

We also keep kind feeling for others. If you perform good act for others, God will give you lots of happiness reason. Some time all need to be battle but be kind always.

Just be kind, and more than that if you can. It's good and right and helps us all. Life can be hard. Everyone has a battle or burden at some point.
