Good People Doing Good Things — Little Things Mean A Lot

Posted on January 19, 2022 by jilldennison

Sometimes all it takes to be a ‘good people’ is a little bit of kindness …


A reward for his hard work
Recently, Laura-Nicole Anderson needed some electrical work done at her home, so she called on Seyton’s Electrical, based in Hull, England.  Turns out the work was fairly extensive, and the electricians spent several hours a week for six weeks working in Anderson’s home.  Her young son, Theo, was “obsessed” with the workers and didn’t miss any opportunity to help them or be around them.  According to Anderson, he …
“… hounded them with questions, kindness and constant offers of help!! He made them refreshments, forced cookies upon them and insisted they gave him more jobs to do. Every question he asked they answered with such kindness, really making time for him despite being really busy.”
Now, some might be annoyed by the constant presence of a small child asking questions and causing interruptions, but these employees of Seyton’s Electrical had greater patience and, when the work was done, they showed their appreciation for all of Theo’s ‘help’ with a note and a payslip!

In truth, I don’t know as I would have had as much patience, but isn’t it wonderful that they did?

Theo loved spending some of his wages on buying an Easter egg for his brother! So sweet!! #actofkindness #thorntonsbunny #kindness #sharinghispennies #love #passingiton Seytons Electrical


The heart of a stranger
In Colorado, a young man named Fallon has an excellent knowledge and a love for music.  Fallon was born with Williams Syndrome, a genetic disease that is characterized by mild to moderate intellectual disability or learning problems, unique personality characteristics, distinctive facial features, and heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) problems.
Several years ago, Fallon discovered a certain guitar in J.B. Hart Music Co., about an hour from his home in Montrose.  Every few weeks, Fallon would travel to the store just to play that guitar he called the “Pantera guitar”, meaning the Dean Dimebag Darrell ML Guitar.  This went on for a couple of years, and an employee of J.B. Hart said, “We were shocked he knew some Dimebag riffs.”

Eight months ago, while he was in the store playing it, a customer took notice of Fallon. It moved the customer so much that he returned to the store later, purchased the guitar, and asked the music shop to give it to Fallon anonymously the next time he came in.  According to Hart Music’s Facebook page …
This is Fallon. Over the last couple of years, he would visit the store from Montrose. His request each time was to play the “Pantera” guitar, meaning the Dean Dimebag Darrell ML Guitar. We were shocked he knew some Dimebag riffs. Fallon is impacted by Williams Syndrome and has an excellent knowledge and a love for music. His dream was to own this guitar.
Eight months ago, when he was in the store playing it, another customer took notice of Fallon. It moved this customer so much he returned to the store later, purchased the guitar, and asked us to give the guitar to Fallon anonymously the next time we saw him.
However, we didn’t see Fallon until today. We tried finding him to no avail. Today, his family came in the store, and we learned they had moved to Texas and returned this week for a visit. It was a wonderful experience to gift Fallon his dream guitar as a gift from a kind stranger. His mom burst into tears, and Fallon beamed with excitement. It was a special moment. There are still good people in this world.
Now, this isn’t just some $50 guitar … I checked it out, and it sells for anywhere from $900 to $1,400 and up, so this was quite a gift!  Thumbs up to that anonymous customer for bringing that huge smile to young Fallon!


She kept her promise!
Marrion Forrest, 86 years old, was in her local convenience store a few days ago to pick up a few things.  As she was checking out, Walter the cashier suggested she buy a lottery ticket, for it was up to a cool half a million dollars and … well, who couldn’t use a half-mil?  Marrion followed his suggestion and left the store after telling Walter that if she did end up winning, she would “take care” of him by sharing her earnings.
Well, long story short, Marrion did win, although not the half-mil but only $300.  Still, that’s not a bad return on the dollar she spent on the ticket.  But the best part of this story is that Marrion kept her promise to Walter.  The next day, she returned to the store with balloons and an envelope that read, “Walter won!” and contained $150!  Marrion’s granddaughter Heidi Forrest, tagged along to capture the moment …

Meet Pirate Kitty
This story isn’t necessarily about a ‘good people’, but I found it heartwarming and funny, so I’m sharing it anyway.
A three-year-old ginger cat dubbed “Pirate Kitty” has brought joy to a Brisbane neighborhood by gifting homeowners stolen toys.

Last March, Kay McCall and her husband were moving into their Ferny Hills home when a cat popped over the fence for a pat and quickly became a daily visitor. One day the McCalls noticed a few toys in the backyard. Then another, and another.
“Most days the presents kept coming, and some days there was just one, and some days there was quite a few, and some days there were none.”
For months, the McCalls enjoyed waking up each morning to discover what the cat had brought them. After accumulating an entire table full of gifts, Kay posted photos of the cat’s haul to a local community Facebook group.

As it turned out, the McCalls were not the only home visited by the Pirate Kitty. Dozens of residents commented that he had brought them toys, too.
“Everyone fell in love with him on the spot, and he sort of became … a community icon. There was actually a sense that he was the community’s pirate cat.”
Eventually, she managed to track down the cat’s owners and established it had a loving home. However, just before Christmas, the Pirate Kitty’s owners decided they could no longer keep their pet safely, and asked Kay to help find him a new home. Ingrid Moyle, a resident who had been following the Pirate Kitty’s adventures, said her family “had a lot of geriatrics pass in the last few months, so we had a kitty-sized hole in our hearts”.
She happily adopted the Pirate Kitty.
