First off, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
It is after all the day to express your love for someone and I love all of you, so there!
Now on with the program
Since its the day for feeling warm and fuzzy, I have a little story here about a random act of kindness I received last week. If you have received a random act of kindness recently, I’d love for you to share so we can all be warm and fuzzy together
Last week, while I was having dinner, there was a promotion at a nearby store where if you took a flyer to the store, you would be entitled to a lucky draw. The lucky draw gifts were quite cute. I ended up drawing an adorable set of sushi erasers.
An elderly Japanese man sitting next to me dining by himself, went to try his luck and ended up with a foldable bag. It was really cute and bright orange and folded up into an orange pouch. He looked bemused for a moment, then slid it over to me and said “Here, for you!”
I was taken aback, but had just enough presence of mind to say thank you. He just smiled, finished up his food and left. The bag came in handy later that evening when I picked up a couple of groceries and his random act of kindness left me with a smile on my face, and a light heart after a tiring work day
I’m now looking to pass on this random act of kindness. What goes around comes around, and a small gesture can make someone very happy, lift their spirits and just make them feel so good, they pass it on. And that would make the world a much better place to live in, won’t it?
Have you had a random act of kindness done for you recently? Care to share? It felt good didn’t it?
