Reading the daily newspaper for a week can get me down. School shootings, accidents, robberies, fires, floods and disasters of all kinds. The list goes on.
But when Saturday’s paper arrives, I seek out the Random Acts of Kindness column. It’s full of stories with happy ending, thank yous for found and returned wallets, purses, special jewelry pieces, help with a flat tire, paying it forward with coffee, snacks, lunches or grocery items. That list goes on, too.
The variety of kind gestures reminds me there is more good than bad in the world. The stories make me smile and lighten my spirits; I’m sure other readers feel it too.
A big thank you to all who share their personal random acts of kindness experiences.
