Last week I was the recipient of an act of kindness from a total stranger. I was totally taken by surprise and even now, days after the experience, I smile. Isn’t that wonderful? In a nutshell, I was waiting in a drive-thru lane. When I arrived at the window to pay and pick up my lunch, I was informed that the driver in the car in front of mine had paid for my meal. The driver simply requested that I “bless another.”
I was extremely grateful for the free meal, but to be honest I’m even more grateful to have experienced this unexpected kindness. I like to think that I have a pretty large heart (like all teachers!), but even so, my heart grew that day. I’d never thought of sharing a bit of unexpected kindness in this way. Now I do!
Have you had a similar experience? Please share!
