This is spectacular. It’s moving. This is a real story about friendship and how strong bonds can be between people.
Have you thought what would happen if someone really close to you was diagnosed with cancer?
How would you react? Would you be holding fear and tears? or would there be wine and bonding?
I know which one I would prefer.

Some days are a bit meh.. (and that is me using the full extent of my English language knowledge). You might wake up in the morning and feel meh. You drop yoghurt on the carpet and you feel bleh. You feel like none of your clothes fit (even though they did yesterday).
Then someone does something and it changes your whole day. Your whole mood. One little moment from one person lifts you.
I am hoping that we as a community can make today Wednesday 22 January 2014 a meh-bleh free day. It is the inaugural ‘Be Nice Day’
It is pretty simple if you have been thinking about sending flowers to a friend or complimenting that lady at the post office on her glasses, today is the day.
It is the time for finally purchasing that suspended coffee for someone less fortunate or donating your old toys to Vinnies. It is the day to call your old friend, to check on your neighbours or to take time out of your day to read your baby bird a third or fourth story.
Just go out of your way to be nice. It doesn’t have to be expensive (or even particularly energetic) just something little to make someone else’s day just a little bit nicer. Hopefully in return the same will happen to you.
If you want to share what you have done or what someone has done for you, please let us know. Or you can keep it a secret. Either way be proud of yourself. Today is the day you can make someone happier.
A little bit of kindness can go a long way.
Happy ‘Be Nice Day’ Nesters xx
