Random Act of Kindness


Have you ever been the recipient of a random act of kindness?  We were the recipient of one last week.  Bob got home from work before me and said - "look what was in our mail today."  I thought it was pretty cute, and it sure beats getting bills and junk mail!
Later that evening, one of my neighbors posted a picture with a similar note, saying she found one in her mailbox.  2 other neighbors chimed in, saying they also got a note.  One of them said they saw two girls who live down the street putting things in mailboxes earlier in the day.
I know this was meant to be random, but I love knowing who did this.  These two girls are about 11, and I think it's pretty sweet that these young girls spent time decorating notes to put in our mailboxes. 
This reminds me that it doesn't take anything big to give a smile to someone!

That's so sweet! Love hearing things like this about young folks of today. I have been blessed a few times by a random act of kindness (paying for my meal, paying for my items at Walgreens) - I have also done similar things to "pay it forward" too. Sounds like you live in quite a lovely neighborhood. ;)

ps...just read about your place of work and all the ones not being able to work. You've had some rough schedules and hoping that all will smooth over a bit with the new nurse.

Beautiful....I love this.

I don't mean to be a downer--but we are dealing with some BIG mail issues (that is another story--deals with theft of mail)---I know the girls mean well, but they could get in a lot of trouble for putting things in mailboxes without a stamp...just saying...

How sweet!! A good way to redeem the time on a hot summer day! I commend those lovely young ladies.

I totally agree in that it doesnt take $$$ or anything big, to show love to others. Sometimes the small is the best, and those little girls were 'spot on'. How sweet.

Cute that they are spreading joy and a change from seeing all the hate on the news.

What fun they must have had doing that!

Another great example of just how much kindness counts !
You are correct; it doesn't take much to put a smile on someones face.
May we all try to make others smile a little more often :)

That is so cute! Makes me think I should have Alaina think about doing some nice things for people - she would love it!

Mari said...

So sweet. I'd reward these girls if I was one to receive a note like that.

I really, really like this!! Yes! It's wonderful when kids like to do creative things and then share them.
