Describe a moment of kindness, between you and someone else — loved one or complete stranger.
The relationship between myself and my mother-in-law was complicated; we got along most of the time but often it was due to my natural tendency to back off and back down. My mother-in-law was very similar to the character Marie in "Everybody loves Raymond" and I was a quieter Debra. However we did share many moments of kindness. One example was when I was living in the "house from hell" three houses down from her and when I was stuck without running water for a week and a half, she came over everyday with four or five 2 liter bottles of water to help out. My two babies were fine because my oldest was a toddler and my baby girl was actually a baby, so they were in diapers and were drinking milk. I needed the water to force flush the toilet from time to time and she was very kind and helpful, providing me with those bottles every day. That week and a half without water was a very long week and a half indeed, but knowing that she was there with her water made it bearable.

That was a nice thing to do.

Yes it was. Doing without water is so difficult and to think that many poor people live like that day in and day out is heart breaking. They don’t have someone bringing water every day to their doorstep.
