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?

Yet another challenge from the ladies over at blogthis.  My really nice mother in law recently knocked on our back door and after saying a quick hello she handed over an envelope with a substantial amount of cash in it for me to go out and buy an overlocker which I had been hankering after for ages! I could  not believe it and was, of course, thrilled at her act of kindness. 

My mother in law works full time and had a very busy social life so is unable to offer much babysitting, which I have always understood and was especially glad that she had a full life with her friends and work after losing her husband not so long ago, so she said she would like to contribute in other ways in helping us out.  I love my new little overlocker and I have been having such fun with (when little mimoo permits!) and I know that it will really help me in the coming months as I have signed on to participate in a few local markets and will make it so much easier to whip up some mimoo goodies.
