What kindness will you share today?

I saw this "story on facebook and it made me think - what kindness will I get a chance to share today ....... What will you share today or what did you share yesterday? ....


"Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.
Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.
Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith' in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies.' Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

Dear Meredith,
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away. Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.
Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I'm easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

Love, God

Spread some kindness today, a smile, a thought and enjoy

I agree with Tom and Alan - I would write more but my it's late and eyes are getting blurred as I read the title at first as kinkiness and not kindness! They blurred a lot more when i read the wonderful story! Blessings, Light, Love and Peace Nic Connect - Engage - Share www.nic-oliver.com email twitter linkedin

That is a really nice story Vicki. Really liked reading this blog. Bought a tear to my eye. It reminded me of the episode of that programme South Park where Kenny dies. The other children decide to build a ladder to heaven to visit him Regards Gordon

Thanks Alan I agree I was so touched when I read this story not just the mother of the little girl but for me the fact that someone presumably at the post office took time to reaply and the impact that will have on the little girl. Anonymous kindness - that without thought or recoourse for reply is possible the best of all :) Vicki Wusche - The Property Mermaid Leveraging money, time and contacts to create cashflow, capital growth and residual income. www.WaystoWealth.co.uk helps you turn your property knowledge into wealth - a new way of building a cashflowing business

Hi Vicki Great story and wonderful to read. Sadly Kindness is often seen as weakness which is a sad indictment of our times and yet acts of kindness without looking for any return are the finest things that anyone can do and show the God in all of us. Have a great week. Kind regards Alan
