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?

My Mum
Another shitty day at work, feeling rather down on the world and couldn't wait to get home and hide under a duvet until the doom and gloom subsided. My phone beeped. Twas a text from my mum:

'You're young, clever, beautiful inside and out, a hard worker, a loving daughter and a ray of sunshine in this world. You are worth your weight in gold and have the strength of character to achieve everything you want in life and I am proud of you and love you very much. Xxx'

From nowhere at just the right time. She really does rock this world.

Since then I occasionally send random texts to the people I love telling them how much they mean to me as I now know that being told you are something special in somebody elses eyes (if not always your own) is flipping wonderful and can mean the difference between another crappy day cursing the world and having a little happy cry and feeling all fluffy inside. :-)

If my mum sent me that
my reply would probably be along the lines of 'what the fuck have you been smoking?'

I can't rule out the possibility that a couple of large vodkas were responsible. Still nice though.
