The Bad and the Good
Fast forward to yesterday. I was at the hair salon (hair has been deemed "cute" -- shoulder length with lots of layers and sweeping bangs) and while I was waiting to check in, the woman ahead of me was checking out. She was told the coupon she had for services didn't apply to what she had done, so she turned around and offered it to me. Okay, it was $10 off and not $740, but hey, it was such a nice thing to do that it renewed (somewhat) my belief that the kindness of strangers does exist.
Has a stranger done something nice for you lately? Or have you done anything unexpectedly nice for a stranger? I'm going to try--a pay it forward kind of thing. Just don't know what yet...

I've been trying to do it a bit more lately, but one of my brother's friends lives a few miles from me. she had a baby recently and I know she doesn't have family nearby, so I made her some brownies and dropped them off. I just remember always wanting something sweet to munch on when my kids were up at night and though she might like the same.ReplyDelete
Hi Heather! How's Lucy???ReplyDelete
Sorry about your car, it makes me sad when stuff like that happens. I am sometimes amazed when total strangers are just kind, for no reason.
Have a great day. How about a pic of that cute hair?
Sorry about the car - don't you just hate when they hit and run, or in your case cause damage and run.ReplyDelete
Glad your family like your new hair do. Do you like it? And yes, will we see a picture.
I gave away one of my quilts to a patient in a hospital. It was intended for a friend but I felt the little girl could use it more, and she immediately wrapped it around her little body and smiled. That made me feel good.
Have a good Thursday.
Ugh! on the car damage, but yay! on new hair style. I always try to hold doors for people (esp if their arms are full), say please and thank you to bus drivers, and I am part of a group that makes handmade cards to send to troops that they can send home to their families - not like there's a Hallmark in the desert.ReplyDelete
Katie, I bet she really appreciated those brownies. I know I would have!ReplyDelete
Hi Elie! Lucy's good--though she gets thrown for quite a loop in Absolutely, Positively. Poor girl... I'm working on the pic of the hair--hopefully it will be up tomorrow as pic of the day.
Dru, I love the story of the quilt and the little girl. So, so sweet.
Hi Heather! I think "Thank you" goes such a long way. And it's so easy, too. I never even thought about the soldiers sending cards--what a great thing you're doing!
