this week kelly over at kelly's korner did a post on random acts of kindness. this is something that's always had a special place in my heart. however, i realize that i do not practice it enough. however, several weeks ago jackie and i did this and it was so much fun! we were shopping in shreveport and jackie had a coupon for gap. it was an emailed coupon and when it was scanned it would tell you how much you got off (it was a surprise). here's the kicker - there was no limit on how many times it could be scanned. she used it and got 15% off! then, i used it and got 15% off! there was a lady behind me that looked like she could use some savings so i asked the clerk if we could just keep passing it on. she agreed; as long as it would scan she'd accept it. so, i looked at the lady behind me and gave it to her. i asked her just to pass it back when she was done. i have no clue how much she saved or how many people got to use that coupon. but, i left there feeling so happy that i saved someone a little bit of money. it's the little things in life that make me happy. i also love sending quick little "pick me up" emails to friends that may be going through a rough time. in dealing with my divorce i learned that a short and sweet email from a friend means more than most ever think it could. come to think of it; they don't have to be going through a rough time. it's still fun just to send a quick note letting them know i'm thinking about them! i need to do THAT more often!
have a great weekend!
