This is a question The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

In amongst all the tales of bitterness and poo, we occasionally get fluffy stories that bring a small tear to our internet-jaded eyes.

In celebration of this, what is the nicest thing someone's done for you? Whether you thoroughly deserved it or it came out of the blue, tell us of heartwarming, selfless acts by others.

Failing that, what nice things have you done for other people, whether they liked it or not?

Well, not THE nicest thing, but...
Those of you that know me, know that my Dad died while I was still but a lad - so this is a pretty simple one.

The nicest thing that I remember, specifically about him, is seeing him when he used to pick me up from boarding school and him coming over and giving me a big cuddle and huge kiss - I was never embarrassed by that in public. He was my Dad, he loved me, I loved him and I didn't care.

The thing that I miss the most about him is knowing that I'll never have that ever again - knowing that the nicest thing he did for me was the simplest, most basic act of love you show your child.

I'm going to disappear into the loo for a little cry now

And you made me cry again too.
You're right though, showing your children you love them is so important.

You're right about that.
Well said mate.

I also just read your other post and wanted to say all the best with your recovery.

I still miss my dad's hugs. Been far too long.

Bastard. You just made me cry.
But hugs from parents are wonderful.

I'm a big softy
Nice post, reminded how much I miss my dad. If I'm ever missing him more than usual, I play "Still can't say goodbye" by Chet Atkins. The hat theme has a special poignancy for me.

It gets better over time but I feel your pain.

To Say Goodbye To You
A Love So Rare

First one is for mum who died in February of lung cancer, second one is for my newfound (of four years) dad, who's dying of throat cancer.

Fucking cancer.

Oh yes, those hugs mean the world.
i'm 50 and my father has never, EVER, hugged, kissed or praised me.

I'm sorry that you lost your Dad, especially so young, as he sounds like a gem. i wish they were all like that!

That's awful - I feel for you man.

And he was a gem. I miss him.
