I'm feeling like a grumpy pants today :D and though a thread on positive things might help perk me or anyone else up!

What is the nicest thing someone has done for you or that you've done for someone else?

    My Mum left her purse on the car roof at the petrol station recently and was about to drive off. The man behind knocked on the window waving the purse and gave it to her. I thought that was a lovely thing to do!

    Aww, this is lovely to hear @66Mustang

    Earlier in the week, someone provided me with a listening ear (and a box of tissues) and it was everything I needed. I am ok now but was really stressed.

    Even the 'small' things really count when they are the things we need the most  :)

    When my husband was told he was terminally ill he went out and brought a TV box that would be easy for me to record on. He tried hard to set it all up as he knew I could not have coped with our existing set up. After he passed away my brother in law came and sorted it all out- my husband was so confused he wasn't able to manage to get it quite right.
