It was raining hard this morning so I brought my neighbor's garbage pails to the house for her.

Namaste, my name is Sue

I was attentive to the needs of the people around me today, especially I open the door for a lady who had difficulties to walk and was carrying a little dog to the groomer, so the groomer could run to get the dog from her right after she left her car, saving her some steps from the car to the front desk at the groomer's place, she looked so much in pain and she was driving OMG

I like this topic! I am one of those people who perform acts of kindnesses everyday whenever I can. I believe that life is too short and that people often go through tribulations that we don't even want to imagine so it's good to be kind to everyone. You just don't know how or when that one single random act of kindness -- sometimes even just a smile -- will turn someone else's perspective or even their whole life around.

BE KIND -- to others and to ourselves! emoticon

I actually received a random act of kindness today. Our yoga instructor was running late, the cold wind was howling and one of my fellow yogi's invited me to wait in her car with her rather than freezing in the alley way.
I guess I also performed a random act too when I shared info with new yogi's about the warmer places to wait.
This one is sort or iffy...I did not give my friend a hard time about her recent choices regarding her estranged husband.

Not yet but it is only 7.30 in the morning. I wonder what possibilitys the day will bring.

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness - Carl Jung

Bought a water-saver spinkler for my elderly neighbour to save her from getting heat-stroke each afternoon when she hand waters her lawn.

On Saurday, gathered a team and raised money for the American Diabetes Association. We did a 3 mile walk to raise awareness and money to help find a cure.

I chose to return a phone call and help someone who was once hostile and underhanded several years ago to me on the job. She is in a desperate situation and reached out to me for help. I chose to help her-take the high road and let go of old anger. It felt great.

It's always good to give out compliments to those people working in thankless tasks - they are often the most vulnerable to receiving verbal abuse.

After overhearing someone berating one of our payroll clerks for several minutes over something the clerk had no control of, I contacted the payroll manager and complimented her on her staff. She had told me once she avoided her phone on pay roll days and I told her I now understood what she was talking about! They do a great job that is under-appreciated in my book. She was thrilled to hear from me. emoticon

Wrapped countless boxes for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child. Volunteered to teach the Pre-K and K class on Wednesday and Sunday School. I'm going to need more than a random act of kindness after that! LOL

I helped drive some kids to school this evening so they could practice for their upcoming play. Otherwise, they were going to walk, but I thought it's too cold and I'm here -- so jump in the car!

I was wondering about this yesterday. Is a random act of kindness something you do for a stranger?

Yesterday I stopped in at the bank just to say Happy Birthday to the branch manager - I've known her for years, we used to be in a prayer group together - so IDK if that was random.

On the way out the resident 'transient' stopped me to say hello - he's not 100% all the time, but I've always spoken to him (probably the only person in town who has). We talked for a few minutes. Again, IDK if that's a random act.

My daughter came home from school not feeling well. I did her chores, made her chicken soup and served her soda and crackers in bed. Again...IDK

Last Saturday, I went to a farmer's market and picked up fresh vegetables. I saw beautiful wild flowers for sale and purchased a bouquet for the owner of a store I frequent. She works very hard and gets super busy with customers that are sometimes impatient. She was thrilled to receive them.

A few weeks ago I gave a grad student in my office a DC metro card. I wasn't sure how much was on it, but since I had not been on the metro for over a year I figured he could use it. He told me yesterday that there was just over $16 on it.

I reached out & called a woman, that I have only spoken once to, over the past 28 years! She was my very first best friend, from the 1st through 5th grade, & then she moved far away, & we lost touch. I found her by searching online, & called her today, just to know her again!

I went up to my yoga instuctor today to tell her how much I enjoyed her class.

I opened the door for a couple of people.

I called up a friend that I hadn't spoke to for awhile, just because!

Post your Random Act of Kindness that you did today...

Today did you do a good deed without being found out? Did you do something nice that was totally unexpected or do something a little extra that helped someone?
