Do Unto Others

Before I begin, I must thank you very much for the warm condolences I received on my last post. They were a great comfort to me. You kids are the absolute best! 🙂

We had a quiet weekend, which was highlighted by random acts of kindness. Saturday was errands day and I went shopping for hand lotion, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. You know – all that stuff that is necessary, but can really add up by the time you get to the register to pay.

Call it serendipity, call it coincidence, but almost every product I needed had a coupon carefully placed beside it. These were not store coupons, but ones that somebody had carefully cut out and “delivered” to just the right spots on several different aisles throughout the store. It’s not that I haven’t seen the occasional stray coupon here and there before, but usually there are only a few and not for things that I use. This time, though, each item on my list had a $1.00 off coupon, and in one case it was for $1.50 off!

What a kind “coupon fairy”. Talk about paying it forward! It was enough to restore my sometimes waning faith in the human race. So much so, in fact, that I smiled when not just one but TWO separate people cut ahead of us in the checkout line, shortly thereafter! Nothing could make me frown that day, however. I was much too busy thinking of what random act of kindness I’d perform. 🙂
