Communities Come Together For Beast From The East
Many shops have been decimated and have no bread or milk left so locals have been helping others in their areas out with either giving them food or going out to the shops on their behalf. We have churches opening up to allow people a warm place to sleep and eat and people donating things including coats for the dogs. There is even a Vegan restaurant in Edinburgh called ROOTS that could not open their shop due to the pipes being iced up so they donated all the food they had to St John's Church in Princes Street.
Of course the children are loving the fact that parents are at home rather than working. I'm sure some parents are enjoying it too. It is all about perspective. You can think the world is coming to an end with weather changes and everything else you hear in the news. Alternatively you can celebrate life and all the wonderful people we have around us.
I give my thanks to everyone that have helped others out over the last couple of days. It doesn't need to stop though when the weather clears up. Kindness goes a long way to make life worth living.
Stand up and take a bow all the people in the world that initiate Acts Of Kindness!
