Our Random Acts of Kindness
My random act of kindness, like most things in my life right now, reverts to my car accident. To this day I do not remember getting out of or being helped out of my car once it finally landed on the fence. I remember the trees coming towards me (and yes, I do know I was heading to them, not the other way around but that is how it felt at the time) and then being halfway up the incline being assisted by a good Samaritan who saw my accident and stopped to help. He led me up the incline and let me sit and wait in their warm vehicle until help ( and Chris) arrived. I will be forever thankful for their Random Act of Kindness! It is truly a shame I did not think at the time to get their names to thank them properly.
It feels like such a fitting time of year to think about the many things in my life for which I’m grateful. There are many; so many that I couldn’t narrow it down to just one to write about. Simple things, like a friend leaving a sticky note on my computer at work that said “You’re awesome” when she knew I was having a rough week. Or a co-worker leaving an inspirational book on my desk, with a particularly relevant section highlighted for me. Or my mom making me soup when I had morning sickness and didn’t feel like eating or cooking. Or the young woman at the grocery store that helped me bag my groceries when I went on my first grocery shopping venture with baby alone. Or another friend that saved coupons for me. The list goes on and on. I am so thankful for all of the little random acts of kindness I experience on a daily basis and I try my best to reciprocate and perform random acts of kindness whenever I can too.
