Lots of simple kindnesses

It has often been said that if you do good deeds for others, you will be repaid in some way. We have spent most of our life in the rural Davis area raising registered cattle and recently had a very successful retirement sale in Wisconsin. In our appreciation for the wonderful support, we gave bonuses to some of the key personnel involved.

In return, we received some gracious thank you notes that included how some of the money was spent (i.e., helped needy neighbors at Christmas time, donated to upcoming fund for hosting a national cattle convention, added to a young man’s college fund, etc.)! This was in addition to their gift to us of enough Wisconsin cheese to share at Christmas with our extended families.

This morning, we decided to go out for breakfast at Cindy’s to mark the end of a very busy holiday season. When it came time to pay the bill, the waitress said it had already been paid by a patron who wished to remain anonymous! There are an abundance of very kind and thoughtful people in this world but they seldom get acknowledged. We are grateful to learn first-hand of the rewards, both tangible and intangible, of “passing it forward.”

Stuart and Emily Rowe
Davis

    Thank you for your note. I've noticed kindness everywhere as well--particularly when I was infirm; people would go out of their way to walk me across the street, give me rides, provide needed company etc. I know the humanity has a vicious side as well, but I feel comfort knowing kindness is an ever-present potential.
