Random Acts of Kindess

Leave a comment

So often I talk to you about giving random acts of kindness. Today I was on the receiving end and wow. It touched my heart.

I was at a gala this week when I got some truly devastating news.

My coat was inside so I went back in to sit for the last 15 minutes of the presentations so I could get it and get out. The perfect stranger who was sitting next to me took one look at me, asked what was wrong. I whispered the news and she nodded and watched me walk up to the front when I was called and pose in a little bit of a daze for a picture. She didn’t know me, but she took my business card.

Today she made a call that is hard to do even with your good friends and checked on me and offered a shoulder and some support. That lady has a huge heart. Wow. I am humbled by that kind of courage and ability to touch people.

I want to be like her when I grow up.
