I like random acts of kindness. I worked for Starbucks for three years and I loved it every time someone started the pay it forward. I didn't like it when it would get 12 cars back and some scrooge wouldn't pay for the cars $2.50 coffee when the person in front of him just paid for his $7 drink...I digress.
I do small random acts a lot. I buy drinks for the directors of my daughter's musical theatre company drinks during show weeks (which are extremely long hours). The other day in a drive thru I purchased the highway patrolman's order (I did that mainly for good karma...haha). I have bought an elderly lady's groceries at the store last year at Christmas time. An older gentleman did it for me once on my birthday and I wanted to pay it forward.
The very last random act was a couple of weeks ago, I took fresh baked cookies over to my new neighbors to welcome them to the neighborhood.
I try to do these things in front of my daughter to show her that giving is as good as receiving. In our house we do small acts of kindness a lot with little surprises for each other.
