The kindness of strangers

Today I took the pupster on a decent walk (my friend from resi called it a walk sponsored by Ed) and while I was walking I walked by a gentleman snow blowing his drive. I waved and continued on my way. About 5 minutes later a huge black truck pulls up to me and asks me if I am joy --- I replied I was (with what was I'm sure a "shit do I know you?" look on my face) he reached over and handed me my target card and said "you dropped this in front of my house and when I went to do the next swipe with the blower I saw it"
What a kind man, not only did he not go shopping. He left his work, jumped in his truck, found me and returned it! What a great guy!!

I guess there really are good people left in this world!

When was the last time you got or did a random act of kindness?

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I try to do "random kindness" acts whenever possible. The last thing I did was pay for someone's blood glucose strips, which he couldn't afford. I felt great doing that :)

This is a really sweet post.

I try to do a random act of kindness every day. Since I work in HR, which makes it hard to love people sometimes, it can be challenging.

LOVE this....So many people call me naive but you know what? We are surrounded by beautiful people. I think the neigh sayers are just not looking for the good...

Love that there is kindness in strangers!

Which reminds me I need to start doing more acts of kindness, like paying for the coffee for the person behind me!

Thanks for your virtual hugs yesterday!
