My Wishlist 2009

Hey! So I stumbled across this community last year when it was just about over so I decided to join this year to hopefully fullfil some wishes and give my own wishlist.

1. Donate to the World Partnership Walk
It's something I'm personally involved with and I think it's an amazing cause.

2. My biggest personal wish: A Guitar.
My whole family is musical except me and I've wanted to learn how to play guitar for ages but I've never had enough money for one. At all of our family gatherings my uncles and aunts and cousins always play the guitar and have sing alongs- I've always wanted to be apart of that.

3. Books

Nice things for strangers...
I'm taking 22 parcels of varying sizes to the post office today, if that counts?

I also used to give my lunch to a homeless guy who sat outside the hospital I worked at. He seemed to appreciate it, although one day he told me that I was too skinny and should eat my own lunch or make two. I used a cookie cutter to make a big bite shape out of my sandwich the next day...
Re: Nice things for strangers...
Definitely counts! Thanks for sharing- that is really nice of you! :D
I don't have a tale of kindness to a stranger at the moment, but kindness from one. Last year, I backed into someone's BMW in a parking lot and my insurance went through the roof because of it. Needless to say, I am now very anxious behind the wheel, especially in parking lots. Last month, while trying very carefully to back out of a spot next to an awkwardly parked car, I dinged the SUV on the other side of me. I pulled back in the spot, and I could have died while writing out my information to leave on the car to let them know that I hit them. As luck would have it, the driver, his wife and children came out of the nearby pizza joint as I was writing. He saw me, asked what happened,and came over to inspect the damage. He looked at my car and saw the three car seats lined up in the back seat (I have a three year old boy and twin infant girls). Hands shaking, I handed him my information and apologized profusely. He looked at me, looked at the kids in the back, and handed the paper back to me.

"You have more important things to worry about than paying for my car. It's just a scratch. Have a nice night."

I was barely able to whisper a "thank you" before he got in his car and left with his family. I got in my car and promptly burst into tears.

Now, I find myself looking for ways to be more patient and forgiving, both with my family and with strangers. You never know who's just this side of having the worst day ever and needs a little forgiveness.
