good deeds

“How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world.”
-The Merchant of Venice, ActV, scene i

Each and every day, I am so enamored by the kindness of individuals that I have not yet met.
I feel a total brightness of light radiating from the notes and the wonderful connection to so many.
A dear friend told me that when you have another child, it is like lighting a candle, the flame gets brighter. Friends are like that too. Just last night a friend called to tell me how much she enjoys a small bowl that I had painted for her. I had to think for a moment as the memory of that bowl was just a faint flicker.
I have been busy making and giving soups and dinners for a friend who has cancer. Just yesterday, she called to tell me she had a “Clean” MRI.
All the giving in return for such good news of hope.
Care to share any good deeds that you have done in this naughty world?
Feel free to leave a comment or post on your own blog!
Let’s all throw on our high beams and shine a good deed.
