Blog This: Challenge #4

Random Acts of Kindness.

If you could name one small gesture someone else has made that had a big impact on your life, what would it be?

That is a reasonably easy one to answer for me. I don't think it was intended as a RAOK but more of a " I've just moved to this town and I want you to come too".

One of my great friends moved interstate and we were talking on MSN, like we did most days. I was saying how unhappy my hubby was in his job and this is how the conversation went:
Her: Oh they are always looking for teachers over here
Me: Oh yeah, where?
Her : Here ( link attached)

I opened the link and it was my husbands dream job. It closed the next day so we threw together an application overnight and emailed it across. A phone interview later and he was offered the job which they made a permenant position rather than a 1 year contract as advertised, to secure his services. We moved 6 weeks later.

That was September last year and 9 months on we have settled into our community and bought our first family home.

Funny (sad funny that is) thing is that now I actually talk to my friend less even though she is only a few blocks away. Life gives and takes away doesn't it....


  1. beautiful post! right time for everything! pity you two dont talk now..

  2. Carly, I should have said that our lack of talking lately is just due to life getting hectic on both our parts.
