the goodness in people

Goodness : generosity, friendliness, kindness, wholesomeness, worth, decency.
At times, the goodness in people makes me gasp, makes me smile, makes my rose coloured glasses that I occasionally like to pop on, even more rosy.
A stall-holder next to me last week arrived with a bag filled with beautiful antique and vintage lace for me to work with. She'd also included a stunning tablecloth and a box of wonderfully tactile buttons.

On Friday our neighbour handed us a bunch of freshly cut peonies from her garden.

On Saturday morning I opened the front door and found, sitting on the doorstep, fresh eggs from a friend and a book she thought I might like.

Thank you – know that your goodness made my day.

Until next time…

  2. If you sow kindness, you reap kindness. I’m betting you’ve done your share of sowing, as you’ve been mightily blessed this week! 🙂

  3. What gorgeous gifts your friends have given you. I bought NZ House and Garden yesterday and thought your article was great – lots of stylish ideas and such beautiful colours. I am going to make the stockings up for my young neice and nephew who are visiting us for Christmas.
