I thought I'd write a little post about someone's kindness today in hope that we can share more stories like this.
Today at Waterloo Underground they were giving away free bottles of water (which is great as it's like a sauna down there!). I walked away and then realised that I can't actually open the bottle due to the arthritis in my fingers. So I walked up to two gentlemen and asked if they could open my bottle of water. One of them looked at me as if to say 'this is a damsel in distress joke'. When I said I have trouble opening bottles as I have arthritis in my fingers the other guy took the bottle of water, opened it for me and told me he also has arthritis in his fingers and feet. He showed me his damaged fingers and we stood there and had a chat about how debilitating RD can be. I thanked him for his kindness at opening my water and said it was nice to connect with a stranger who understands the plights of RD. His little act made me smile today.
It would be really nice to hear stories of random acts of kindness that's either happened to you or you've been kind to someone else in need.
