HOW ABOUT A BISCUIT?

Daily Prompt: Nice Is as Nice Does

Tell us about the nicest thing you’ve ever done. Photographers, artists, poets: show us KINDNESS.

Gar w 2 terriers

I’ve done a lot of stuff in my life. Whether or not it was “nice” or “not so nice” is not for me to judge. Only the recipient of whatever it was could possibly say and they aren’t talking.

I’ve done stuff for people I thought was nice and helpful only to have it backfire in a particularly horrible way. Like that couple you introduced who got married and are now in the middle of a hideous divorce. You know, that kind of nice. Oops.

So I’ll just say this: I did the best I could under the circumstances. Maybe I helped. Maybe I didn’t. Maybe my kindness turned out to be a massive disservice.

If I helped, I’m glad. If I didn’t, I’m sorry.

Only my dogs fully appreciate me. They want what I can give without worrying about the long-term effect and psychological consequences: a cuddle and a treat. I can do that!

  1. We can only try. It’s the ‘Intent’ that’s important.
    Most of the time we can tell if we are interfering – or not. I hope.
    Sometimes – as with your kids – it’s kinder to let them work through something themselves. They might well need the experience. There’s hardly anything UNkinder than a spoiled kid.

  4. I think that most people will count something as nice if you are doing it for them with kindness in your heart, even if it does backfire!
