Random Act of Kindness - Surprise Draw!
I was in our local hardware store this evening. You know the type - large, impersonal and run by an invisible team.
I was there to buy a couple of punnets of seedlings for mum. Just some humble parsley capsicums and red onions.
Well I discovered I didn't have enough cash and decided to leave one at the register.
Suddenly from behind came the voice of a lady "You've left one behind".
I informed her that I didn't have enough money and she promptly said: "Yes you do, I'm buying it for you!"
I was really taken aback and said "no...no....no...." Her reply: "This is a Random Act of Kindness"
I was really touched and promised her I would find an opportunity to do the same by the end of the week.
SO this is it:
If anyone would care to share their experience involving a random act of kindness or you would like to share your thoughts on this one, I would love to hear. So please level a message to this post.
On Saturday 9th
To all that reply, I will put their name/email into a hat (shoebox) and draw one out.
To this end I will post a handmade surprise to the person whose name is drawn on the following Monday (11th January)
I hope that if your name is not drawn, then you are the recipient of a Random Act of Kindness or decide to do one.
Good Luck Everyone!
