Have you ever been surprised by love? Surprised by beauty? Surprised by kindness? It is always a good time to share that kind of loving surprise with others. Here is a short list of ways to commit random acts of kindness. You could probably add to the list!!
~ The next toll booth you come to, pay for a car behind you.
~ Send a thank you letter to a teacher you once had, letting him or her know the difference the teacher made in your life.
~ Ask an older person to tell you a story about his or her youth.
~ Order a mail order gift anonymously for a friend or co-worker.
~ Give another driver your parking spot.
~ Let someone merge ahead of you, smile and wave at that person.
~ Write a note to the boss of someone who has helped you, thanking the boss for having such a great employee.
~ Praise the work or attitude of a co-worker to someone else in the workplace.
~ Write a note to the owner of a house or garden in your neighborhood whose beauty gives you pleasure.
~ Say, “I love you” to 20 people for whom it’s true.

Thank you, Mary Ellen and Paula Marie. Actually I was there in Racine this summer. Sorry that we didn’t get properly introduced. I’m not sure that I’m able to make it this coming year to Adrian. It looks like I have a calendar conflict. Blessings to you! Pat
