        • heart well today at work while I was visiting a store there was a mom with 3 kids we have bogo she was trying to explain to her crying daughter she only had enough money for her two brothers shoes right now. The little one through tears wanted to know why.
          She wanted princess light up shoes. I told her to get them and I paid the difference. I thought the mom was going to cry. She is on umemployeement after 16 yrs and single mom now.
          What was really great is the manager offered me half of what I spendt. I said no but to pass it forward on circle of kindness monday.heart

        • That was a beautiful thing to do!

          I can’t say that I did anything super outstanding since I worked from home yesterday. But I did donate to a friends kid for a St Jude mathathon.

        • I missed this yesterday (Monday), but also want to join your circle of kindness. In fact, this past weekend I was telling my husband I need to be nicer to people, not that I’m mean, but I could be nicer to make people feel good.

          For example, last Monday had jury duty and sat in the jury room all day, luckily brought my laptop and was able to work on it most of the day. This lady also sitting in the jury room a long time eventually made her way over to the table I was sitting at, pulled up a chair right next to me (like side-by-side closeness) and looked on to my laptop at what I was working on, as if she knew me and as if I called her over and said, “come look at this with me“!   I was taken aback by the entire gesture and sat stunned for a good minute before I closed my laptop abruptly (as if to make a statement that she was being rude).  She was definitely older than me (maybe mid 60’s), and when she finally spoke, she didn’t speak english and of course I couldn’t tell what she was saying. And I didn’t say anything back to her. She left the table and went back to where she was sitting.

          I didn’t know what to make of that whole scene. But then thought to myself, what is there to make out? She obviously isn’t some “spy” wanting to steal my work or expose all my secrets (that I don’t have).  So I wondered why I reacted as such, then felt really bad.  

          So I took my laptop over to where she was and opened up my photo album to show her pictures of my family and cute little grandbabies.  We never spoke any words but she had a big smile on her face and chuckled at several pictures.  Then I knew she had forgiven me (for I believe I was the rude one).  The moral of my story here, is... don’t be too quick to frown upon or judge people (like I obviously did with this lady), be kind instead, do something nice and make them feel good.
