Inspired by the weekly contests at The Average Girl’s Guide to Being A Princess, I have decided to begin a regular post entitled Monday’s Act of Random Kindness. In it I will tell whatever random acts of kindness I manage to do, observe or receive during the week. I am hoping this will help me to be more aware of opportunities that I have to be kind to others. I also thought it would be a great way to start my week, and hopefully yours!
I would love to hear about your Random Acts of Kindess. Feel free to use Mr. Linky and share your own acts of Random Kindness that you have witnessed or instigated by posting on your blog, then putting your link below. Then I can come read your Acts of Random Kindness!
And now for my ‘report':
1. A fellow homeschooler learned of our current financial situation and mentioned it to her husband who is looking for a computer programmer. He is talking to Daniel. So if the Chicago gig doesn’t work out (we have heard nothing this week), this is a back up plan. Always good to have those!
2. Another homeschooler, and my eBay mentor, and my dear friend, purchased some books from me this past week. There was one she really wanted and instead of paying me the .50 cents a book I was asking her (I gave her a deal because we are buddies), she paid me $20 for the one she really wanted (which was its suggested market value). Then she looke through another list of items and purchased a really nice crockpot from me that I never use. Then she sent me some extra money because in the past I have loaned her money when she needed it and she said now it was my turn.
3. When the children went around asking our neighboring businesses to support them, the people were polite and encouraging. That was a wonderful gift to them and to me.
4. I have been taking my neighbor’s daughter to school until she gets over her respiratory infection (it is so dusty here with the gravel road it has really been bothering her to walk the mile to the bus stop and her mom leaves early for work).
