An Act of Kindness

Kindness is difficult to give away because it keeps coming back.

I met this woman a couple of weeks ago.  Our time together was not long and was busy...maybe a half hour to an hour.  And I think we may have only spent about 1/4 of our time talking.  We were at an event for the shelter and I found out she has been volunteering there for quite some time, but our paths never crossed until a few weeks ago.  As were talking I had mentioned about my work with the troops (go figure, right) and how I make them cards to send home to their families plus the fact that I make cards for the shelter as well.  I had just finished a major project that week that I had with me and showed it to her.....she seemed to be impressed by my work.  This kind lady said, "I started to get into scrapbooking, but I never really used the stuff I got," and she told me she would drop it off at the shelter for me one day since she knew I would use it."  I told her that would be wonderful and I could always use it for the troops and the shelter cards.   Last Saturday when Joe and I were at the shelter I received all the stuff she had and it is a nice amount.  I can't believe the kindness this person has shown me and the amount of stuff that she gave to someone she barley knew.  I hope to cross paths with her again.  The world could use more kindness.

Thank you.

There is so much stuff all piled underneath the stuff on top.
