Nicest thing?
A friend took me under her wing in times of need, and stuck by me through thick and thin.  She really made me feel loved and beautiful on the inside and out.  Best times I've ever had...

The nicest thing.. I'm not sure, there isn't really one thing.. a few little ones that kinda stuck.. like when my best friend slipped me a note in maths class, after we'd had a fight in the previous class, and I'd sworn to myself not to forgive her.. it said "I'm so sorry Lynne.. can you ever forgive me?" I almost cried.. it wasn't I that needed to forgive her, but the other way around.. she kinda woke me up there.. she's a very special person, and I don't know what I'd do without her..

And when I played soccer with my big bro and his mates, one of his friends helped me with my soccer, teaching me skills etc.. and not laughing at me if I made mistakes.. and believe me, I made a lot! Although I loved soccer, I was never much good at it.. but he made me feel good about that.. and I thought that was pretty neat..

And everything my boyfriend does for me is the nicest.. like when he first tasted my cooking.. I burnt it terribly!! And it tasted awful.. only just edible.. but he ate it, and said it was nice.. he even had a second serving, (just to show me he was serious..) of course, now he teases me mercilessly about that, hehe.. but I thought that was just so sweet.. I was so embarrassed to have burnt it!
Yeah.. well those are some of the really nice things people have done for me.. that I really appreciate..

OK, Well, I'm going out on a limb here, but I don't care.
The nicest thing anyone has ever done for me?

The nicest thing someone ever did for me?  

I was about 10.  I had just tweaked my leg very badly. Broke it, actually.  I was on my way to ingest some pain medications when my uncle socks me in the stomach and sprals me out on the floor.  He said, "You want up?  Do it yourself, i'm not helping you."

It hurt like hell, but he taught me something very important that day.

Do things on your own, don't look at medications to help?

er.. sorry I don't get it either.. what was the message? 'cuz if my Uncle ever did that to me, i don't think it would teach ME something.. well, save the fact that he was a bit peculiar, and that he'd just socked me in the guts.. perhaps 'expect the unexpected'? lol..

A woman who became my second Mum for awhile took me into her home after I'd left home at 16...living in the big city after moving there from a small rural town, I was essentially alone - underfed and desperately miserable. Didn't have a clue what I was doing.

She cared for me for three months without asking for a thing.

I'll never forget it, or her.

K, that's such a nice memory to have..   Yes, there are a lot of special ppl in the world..
Yeah, a nice thing would be when my boyfriend asked me on a date, nearly 2 years ago..

I'm blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life, so I might go on for awhile about these things.

My voice teacher believed enough in me to go to a vocal competition and play the accompliment for me in a town 2 hours away. She gave up a Saturday for me, and she didn't get mad at me when I messed up and lost... she started planning for next year!

My English teacher this year gave me a lot of encouragment with my writing. She even gave me a big book of publishers to send my stuff off to, and offered to pay any fees if I got something accepted. It's good to know that someone believes in me that much.

A certain busy young gentleman took the time to compliment me on my poetry. I value his opinion a lot, and his words really helped me see things a bit more clearly.

And then there's my great Passions people. Every kind word you guys say to me means the world to me. I appreciate and love you all!

Okay...I wasn't going to tell this story. But here goes:

I was at a barbecue, and as sometimes happens, we ran out of beer, etc. So, the guys decide to go to the store. Everyone is placing their orders, etc. and I decided it was a good time to ask for a pack of cigs. Well, the boyfriend/fiancee/whatever   decided to give me a hard time. As all our friends grew quiet, it became more humiliating for me, when a friend quietly called my boyfriend over (we'll just call the friend "Bo" since that is what's he's called)
and very quietly gave my boyfriend a fifty and said, "Here. Now you buy Miss Karen a carton of whatever is she likes to smoke."

Now I know I shouldn't smoke. But I do. And it wasn't about the cigarettes, it was at first, but BECAME more about power plays and humiliation--and my friend, generously, and with discretion put an end to that game immediately. It actually made me cry. And for the icing on the cake, "Bo" told me after the boyfriend went to the store--

"If you are going to cry over a carton of cigarettes, then someone needs to let you know that you are loved..." and hugged me too.

Wasn't that sweet?

sigh...love ya "Bo".
