How Nice: A most wonderful time of the year

Marilyn Mattingly of Virginia Beach wrote in that she’s had a great run of generosity so far this month. She dropped white paint on her driveway and her neighbor, Tim, power washed it off. She got a nail in a tire and a mechanic at the Hall Honda dealership removed it and fixed the tire for free. She tore one of her new registration decals for her car license plate and a woman at DMV brought a new one out to her. She received a Ring security system from one of her children as a Christmas present. Two friends from her neighborhood, Rick and Gina, came to her home to program it and install it for her.

“I feel very blessed and know deep in my heart that there is much kindness in the world at a time it is sorely needed.”
