I truly believe that kindness triggers more kindness. An excellent example of that happened to me recently. My roommate and I were on our way to an appointment with her doctor. We got in the car and were all set to go when we remembered we left the cookies we made for her dad in the house. So, she tries to back into the drive way, but misses it and hits a snowdrift in our yard. We try to pull back out, but we were stuck! Then one of our neighbors came out of his house to walk his dogs and sees that we’re in trouble. He takes his dogs back in the house, grabs his shovel and dashes across the street to help us.

Thanks to his kindness, we were able to get to the doctor’s office on time and we arrived in enough time to help an elderly woman get past the icy walkway. We helped her into the office and she was so grateful that someone would help her, she couldn’t stop smiling. Once she was settled in to wait on the doctor, I noticed she was seated across from a little girl with the flu who just looked miserable. The woman we helped struck up a conversation with her, got her to smile and took her mind off being sick.

With all the bad news in the world these days, it was so refreshing to find this Web site. Thanks-O-Meter celebrates those every day events of kindness, charity and anything that deserves a thank you!

It works by you selecting a thank you, choosing how it made you feel and then sharing your story. For my story, I chose “For Being Great Neighbors” and it made me feel lucky and grateful. Then I selected to share my story. It was hard to keep it within the 500 character limit, but I managed to do it.

Don’t have anything to share right now? Well, that’s no problem! You can enjoy all the stories everyone else has submitted on the site. Just click on the Stories tab at the top of the page. Then select an emotion and it will give you a listing of stories you can read that were tagged with that particular emotion.

This Web site has a wonderful concept and I hope you’ll not only share your own personal stories, but enjoy the others as well. Check it out today!
