Well – I was a bit remiss yesterday getting this blog out. Monday’s are always a bit crazy around here, and yesterday was even more than normal. For those of you participating in the Agatha & Sherlock Mystery, I’m sure you understand why 🙂
So, here is something I heard on the radio yesterday when I was dropping the kids off at school. The radio announcer (we will call her Mom) was remembering a time when her little boy was really little (he is now a police man, so I’m guessing 20+ years ago). Anyway, it was a rainy day and the two of them were in the grocery store getting ready to check out when she heard the little old lady in front of her ask the clerk to call her a taxi. Well, the ‘Mom’ intervened and told the lady that she would take her home if she didn’t mind waiting for a few more minutes. The lady was so grateful for the ride, and she told ‘Mom’ that everyday she tries to do something nice for somebody – and she especially enjoyed the annonymous things she did. But, she also noticed something else … that people always did kind things for her too.
Hmmmm – does this tell you something? I am a true believe of ‘What goes around, Comes Around’ – not that I think any of you are hoping and waiting for people to do you good deeds, but I would bet that most of you have wonderful people around you all of the time, and you are all helping each other in even the littlest ways. By reading all of the comments, anyone can see that every one of these acts is impacting the life of somebody, somehow – and you all should be so very proud.
