Random Acts of Kindness (Week 4)

Random Acts of Kindness. Smiles in the grocery store. Hugs for a friend. Words of encouragement to family members.

I was on my into the grocery store on Tuesday afternoon as a young mom with two little ones was on her way out. As her preschooler climbed into her van and the door started to shut, she called to him, "Open the door." But the door closed after him and did not reopen regardless of her pleas. On one arm she carried a baby in a carseat. Her other hand was full too. "I can open the door for you, " I said, "and I'll take your cart." She smiled and thanked me as she tucked her baby into the backseat of the van, and we both went away smiling.

If you have an RAK to share, hop on over to Betsy's and link up with the rest of us.
