I was the recipient of a random act of kindness this week.
Not only did it shatter the idea that “there is no such thing as a free lunch” – because the person ahead of me did pay for my lunch, for reasons that seemed utterly spontaneous – , it also raised my regard for my community and my appreciation for positive surprises. It is a wonderful thing to be on the receiving end of decisions led by kindness and generosity.
That carrot soup tasted really good. It was about more than the carrot soup: it was about a gesture that can have a lasting and snow ball effect, on all it touches.
