It's so good reading this thread and seeing what others are doing.
I love the kindness of giving a quarter for a cart. That is something I would never have thought of.
Haven't been out yet today to do an act of kindness but I received kindness today. A friend of ours stopped for morning coffee...he comes every morning (you know the 'men gossip session') and he brought me some migrane medication that his wife uses. I was very thankful as I have been getting bad ones since I have this head cold. I thought that was very sweet of him.
I had to laugh. I had a 'to do' list printed out for yesterday. Because I was in this challenge, and DH was the only person I saw all day, I had 'smile at DH' on the list. He saw it and laughed at me.
I must admit, I had more cause to be kind... DD#2's flight to Halifax was canceled in Ottawa. She ended up spending the night with a stranger in the Holiday Inn. Turns out it was an older lady who is a llama farmer. She had a blast and we found the lady on the Internet...or her farm. In between phone calls to relatives, DD#2, her fiance, etc., I had plenty of opportunities to share a laugh or two with people. Good to be able to cheer people up.
I gave away Coke Codes to three fellower villagers, today. Hope it helped them in some small way.
Went for my walk this morning and it is like a blizzard outside (but I am determined to lose my weight) so anyway a lady was stuck out on the highway and I helped to push her out. That was my kindness today for far.
We took DD#1 on her errands today. We had stuff to do and needed her for something. It evolved into an afternoon long trip. I packed water and snack, and we had fun.
Out shopping this morning, a lady right beside my car was looking for a place to put her cart. I took it in for her and used it.
Then a little later, an older man came up to me asking me if the store carried an item he was looking for. I didn't know and he walked off, he even stopped and asked my DD.
I ended up going down the aisles until I found the item that he wanted.. took it to him. I even showed him where it was located so he could find it again the future.
I have to mention here how two members have made my day, both acts of kindness by special pms. I want to thank them publicly for touching my heart, on a day when things have been really overwhelming.
Thanks ladies - you're the best!!
