Random Acts of kindness

Hello there and Happy Holidays!

Tom and I have been continuing our random acts of kindness and here are two of the latest!

We taped quarters to the gumball machines at Kroger one night last week. It was strange, walking in we both had this feeling like we were going to get in trouble. We noticed people staring at us and I overheard a couple behind us while we were taping....
"what are they doing?"
"I don't know, must be on drugs"
It was funny, but at the same time sad that kindness is so uncommon we automatically think people are doing something wrong.
Anyways, we hope that some kids enjoyed our RAK!!

Our next RAK was my favorite so far. We found these gorgeous Poinsettias the weekend after Thanksgiving at Home Depot for 99 cents, so we bought 6 with the intention of taking them to a nursing home. We explained to the nurse what we were doing, and asked her to please help us give these to (6) residents who don't get many (or any) visitors. We met some amazing people, who were thrilled to get such a nice surprise....but I think mostly to have a new face to talk to. One lady commented on how handsome Tom was, and I think was a bit sweet on him. I don't blame her ; )  The residents were so grateful, and I realized that even though it's fun to spend money on friends and's a truly moving experience to reach out to those who don't have a lot, or maybe don't even have someone to celebrate with. It's really doesn't take much to make someone's day.

I didn't get a chance to get a good picture as we were walking around, and didn't want to post the residents we saw.....but here is a blurry Tom anyhow.

Till next time Happy Holidays and spread the love!!
