This week I completed a random act of kindness inspired by Suzie from Live, Laugh, Read! It feels weird doing something kind for randomly and then turning around to write all about it. I will say that with the help of my kids we were slid 20 bucks into a couple of nice cards and handed them to unsuspecting mothers walking with children along a very busy area in our city.
I should have included a Starbucks gift card…or a bottle of wine…because walking with my own kids in that area would have caused me to panic and run right into oncoming traffic. Like a squirrel. I handed the cards over, said “Hello, my friend would like me to hand these out to people, have a great day bye!” and I skedaddled!
I can tell you the women seemed thrilled to see me even though they didn’t know what was in the card. I could have been spamming them with postcards to a free Pyramid clinic for all they knew, and yet neither of them looked at all put off by my disrupting their day. In fact, as I drove away I watched one woman stoop down to read the card with her little girl and the little girl looked completely awestruck.
Mission accomplished team!
