Every day I read or hear about at least one random act of kindness. And every day I wonder why there are not more. Random acts of kindness should happen hundred if not thousands of times each day. Kindness is free. Something as simple as a simple can make someone's day so much better.
Many years ago, my kids and I were at Baskin Robbins (around Christmas time) because we wanted an eggnog shake. I didn't have much money but our little family was going through a very rough time and I wanted to give the kids a treat. We ordered and waited our turn to pay as there were several soldiers ahead of us. Two particular soldiers were watching to and listen to the kids talk. When I got to the counter to pay the cashier told me "no charge". When I asked why not? She explained to me that the soldiers had paid for our shakes. Tears immediately filed my eyes. The kids and I went to the soldier's table, and I shook their hands and thanked them. My son gave them both a hug. A memory that will stay with me forever.
Have you experienced an act of kindness?
