This weekend I am grateful for... the kindness of friends and strangers

Time for another Maxabella-inspired Grateful Post. This week I've been struck by people who have gone beyond my expectations, in the best ways.

First, I am grateful for the person who found my purse on the street and delivered it to the local police station before I realised that it was lost rather than misplaced.

Second, I am beyond grateful to friends who have gone beyond the call of duty. I am plotting some career adjustments at the moment and, without intending to, I have discovered the power of networking. Suddenly going from "oh dear, not sure what I'll do" to "wow, that might be a good option" has been empowering. So I am grateful to people who tell me "you can..." rather than "you shouldn't..." (even if the latter are saying it with the best intentions.)

What lovely friends you have - 'you can' rather than 'you shouldn't'!

Which reminds me of a girl I know who when I shared my weight-loss with said "you've lost it too fast, it's all going to come back on"... why, thank you... ah, friend. x

it's always a good thing when people go beyond our expectations.

Good luck with everything! We all need people who say 'what a great idea, why don't you...' instead of 'why would you do that?'. Keepers, all of them.
