Shortly afterward the COVID pandemic arrived and with it the restrictions and shortages that came with it (especially toilet paper LOL ,not sure if the USA suffered the same short supply of such a necessity!).



We were nomads until mid-July when we finally arrived at our new property. I reckon we would have suffered greatly without the 'KINDNESS' we received from so many, especially our PF family who kept us in their thoughts and prayers. Thank you all...it meant a great deal to us. A special thank you to Terry57 who contacted us and then kept you up to date on what was happening with us. Thank you for your KINDNESS Terry57.



Once again, kudos for choosing 'Kindness' Jon. Perhaps we can extend the theme to the entire forum and find a kind honest word to post to one another and then 'pay it forward'. :-)
Thank YOU for your words of kindness! We're so glad after all you've been through that you're back around! You've been missed. I love your thought of paying it forward! Brilliant! With some luck, maybe my little contest thread could be a starting point

Re: November 2020 POTM Contest!

"Random Acts of Kindness" ( Anne Herbert - 1982) is what is gonna heal a lotta things. Salty never really looks kind, but he's learned his bite pressure pretty well, so a lotta times he is being 'kind', without looking kind. Be a pretty silly entry, showing him being kind in the process of biting me.

Re: November 2020 POTM Contest!

Absolutely right Debbie! And few people understand the importance of kindness better than you, after all the agonies you and yours have been through. We were all so worried about you and missed you enormously. It’s so wonderful that you’ve been able to make a fresh start, and bring your warmth and positivity back to our little community.

We are put on this earth to be of service to others, and this Forum is yet another means that enables us to do exactly that. We’re not always able to pay a kindness back, but we can ALWAYS pay it forward

Al, not silly at all! It's all about context, and that idea is a perfect example. Bring it on, my friend!

Re: November 2020 POTM Contest!

Glad you are back, Debbie! I know you'll build back better even as the monstrous fire was unable to singe your soul or dampen your kindness!

Awww, holding hands and everything! If that's not a beautiful moment of kindness, I don't know what is. Thank you for that, what stunning babies they are!

My friend, I think you're right about that! Nothing better than good parenting for sweet innocent babies.
