But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
I found myself smiling yesterday, not because of my own Random Acts of Kindness, but because of how God can bring them full circle and bless me right back. You might think, like me, that blessing someone else is a reward of its own, and it is, but I was doubly blessed by a few random happenings totally unconnected to what I had done.
Yesterday morning I set out to deliver one more package. It was not unlike the boxes I sent out in the mail, but it was in a small gift bag and included some pretty tissue paper and a bag of dark chocolates. I left it in the elementary school office and asked if someone could deliver it to the unsuspecting librarian. Before heading back home I stopped at the library in the little town of Ontario, NY where my mission was to find a copy of Disney's movie Tangled. On a whim I perused the shelves and grabbed a few books too.
And then, what do you know? I checked the mail when I got home and found a package with my very own name on it. My friend Patricia in Erie, PA had sent me a Tall Ships coloring book. How cool is that?
