My journey to shoot for the moon.

Random Act of Kindness

Random acts of kindness are a little way to give back.  Recently, Michael and I went for Frozen Yogurt.  I have a Wolverine Card (a discount card I purchased from the High School Cheerleaders) that gets us 1/2 off.In addition to the half off, when you purchase 10 cups of yogurt, you get 1 free.  It just so happened that I paid $7 for our yogurt (for all 4 of us) and then had earned a free yogurt.  I love free things.  However, I was feeling especially generous that night.  There were two young men in line behind us.  They were kind-of scruffy looking.  When I paid for my yogurt, I told the cashier to give them our free one.  She looked surprised, but nodded.

Now, the two guys were quite surprised (we watched from the car).  I am certain that they had never been the recipients of a random act of kindness before.   What a great feeling!  And hopefully they remember that act and pass it on.

Shortly after this, I got a message from a friend of mine in IL (JW) who LOVES to do these kinds of things.  She did a great act of kindness AND sent it to her relative’s old address!  Oops!  She managed to fix it and get it delivered to the new address, but it was a mess.  She seemed to be laughing about the whole thing and she was enjoying herself.

I think that the best thing about random acts of kindness is how you feel after you’ve done one.

What act of random kindness have you done?

  1. If that “random act of kindness” made you feel good … imagine how it made the recipient feel?
