An Act of Kindness that I did for someone would be for my parents.
What I did as kindness would be that I help my mom do chores at home without them telling me to help. I will see that they where always working hard and they will come home preatty late. So I kind of took care of home and my two brothers. and sometimes my dad too when he felt really bad, what I mean by bad would be that he had lukimia cancer. My mother work as a babysitter she will go to work mostly of the time at 6am and come back at 10pm and on weekends she would clean houses so she never had time to do chores at home or make dinner. My father worked in construction he was a hard worker too he will go to work a little later than my mom and come home earlier than her…show more content…
I liked helping at home and taking care of my dad when he didnt work giving him his medication and making food for him and be there for what he needed when he would come home from the hospital i would help him walk him to the bathroom leave hes cloths ready for when he was done taking shower have averything ready for him since he was really weak when he came out from his kimos. its sad to so him like that he didnt like me to help him he would be moudy all the time . But thats how it is the doctors told us that it was normal for him to be like that its because they get fustrtated that they can do nothing on there own . We had to be extra patient because they get mad for any little thing. But Ill still like taking care of my father i love my father verry much it did not bother me helping wat so ever. thirdly I would also help my mom clean house on the weekends so we could finish sooner and get home soon . So she can spend time with us at home and I spend time with my baby too and relax a little . My mom would clean houses on the weekends to make extra money because with my dad sick sometimes he could not work or he will spend a month or two in the hospital . she needed that extra money for when my dad did not work she can pay the house and bills food and all expenses.
Finally I see that everything i did was act ofkindness and is a really nice think to do for my parents iam sure they appreacited
I believe in random acts of kindness. The smallest things that can make you smile. I believe that if you do something nice for someone, they will take that act of kindness and spread it out to people they come across throughout their day.
It’s the smallest things that make the biggest differences. For example, holding the door for someone who has their hands full or smiling at a stranger as they pass by. It’s these little things that let people know someone cares.
This belief is not based on one significant personal experience, but a few of them that I have experienced throughout my life. Not one individual experience was what I call “life changing” but looking back at the ones that I can remember, I can easily say that they were.
I remember one day last year when I was a counselor in training at my summer camp, and not having the greatest day. Nothing specific was wrong, but everyone has those days where everything just seems to go wrong. Well I went to bed that night and there was a bouquet of tissue paper flowers and a note that said “I hope this brightens your day!” I still do not know who left them on my bed, but it doesn’t matter. It’s the thought that counts.
One of my favorite personal experiences was when I was visiting the University of Miami. It was pouring rain, and we were on the campus tour. To get from one building to the next, we had to cross into the rain, and right there, there was a student standing with a bunch of umbrellas. Anyone who did not have their own umbrella was then given one by this student. The umbrellas were stamped with a logo and the words “random acts of kindness”. There was another student stationed at the other building, who was collecting the umbrellas and passing them out to people traveling in the opposite direction. A gesture as simple as this has the power to make somebody’s day brighter.
I can also recall numerous times when a stranger has held a door for me, or I for them. Something that I have always wanted to do, but have not had the chance yet is while in the drive though line, pay an extra $5 for the person behind you. I have seen this on TV and it is an extremely nice gesture to do for someone you have most likely never spoken to before.
As I said earlier, it’s the smallest things that make the biggest impacts in people’s lives. So here is my challenge to you. Today, before you go to bed, do a random act of kindness. It can be to someone you know or someone who is a complete stranger, but it has to be random. And I’ll bet that before you go to bed, you will receive a random act of kindness in return.
