Practice Random Acts of Kindness
A little girl, about 4 or 5 years old caught my eye. She was with a man, who appeared to be her father. I approached the man, and offered him the coupon, telling him that I didn't need it, and hoped that he could make good use of it. He looked at me in surprise, and looked down at the coupon, smiled and thanked me. I'm not generally one to toot my own horn, but I just wanted to make a point about Random Acts of Kindness. I felt happy about my good deed for the day, and know that my kindness and thoughtfulness made someone's day a little brighter.
You can find more stories about Random Acts of Kindness in the Winnipeg Free Press Online edition. I have read through a few of the stories, and it helps me see that there are lots of kind people out there, and if we all take turns, it will make our day a little brighter. Some even choose to Pay it Forward.
