Can you hear me blowing my own trumpet? It's only a tiny trumpet and I promise I don't have a swollen head… but today I did something really, rather nice. I'm only telling you about this because of the warm glow I've got going on at the moment… I want to share, I'd like to thoroughly recommend a thoughtful act flavoured with a hint of surprise and a small sprinkling of largesse, because truly, the intrinsic joy of being really, rather nice for no other reason than, well, being really, rather nice… it's delicious!
Altruism isn't something I normally prescribe to… I'm more of a karmic being as a rule; although I cried like a sap whilst watching 'Pay it Forward' and for a while afterwards the kids and I competed for the title of 'most helpful person in NZ'. This was enlightening actually… kindness through the eyes of a teenager. The PIF wars came to an abrupt end when a claim of 'only half beating up my little brother' was put forward as a worthy act!
And the recipient of all this niceness, well she's a very dear friend who deserves all the good things she's got coming.
