Acts of Kindness....

Happy Friday all.....

Sometimes, my intentions are entirely put together in my mind...and then Life takes over and I am not quite able to complete the goals that I originally set.  

My goal for this week was to join:

Betsy @ http://myfivemen.blogspot.com

for her Random Acts of Kindness party.....

Although, I did not come up short on following through with the ACT OF KINDNESS part.....I was not able to provide any photos to go along with my post. :(

My kiddos are always saying "I've Got This"
.....meaning that they will help me out.

Funny thing how we pick up "Lines" from one another!!

This week...while doing my grocery shopping, there was a young mom checking out just in front of me.  Her hands were full with a bundle of joy.  She needed 72 more cents to complete her transaction, but was struggling to find the change in her purse, and to balance everything else that she had in her hands.

Before I knew it.....I said: "I'VE GOT THIS"
and I immediately pulled out the needed 72 cents to finish paying for her ticket. 

It wasn't that she didn't have the money...it was the labor of finding it. 

I know that this is a small gesture when it comes to acts of kindness, but even the small things can make a difference in "The moment."

"The Fragrance of the Rose lingers on the hand of the giver"


Blessings to you all....
Enjoy this beautiful Friday....

Oh that is the best kind of gesture. I love that the saying of your kids just popped out.

That 72 cents was worth a million to her at that awkward moment.

Loved this.

YES! God presented you with an opportunity and you TOOK it!! I love your beautiful header and the subtle background that lets the flower be the star.

You a great lady, Shug! I'm sure you made that moms' day! I did that myself not too long ago when an older lady was a little short on change. Happy Valentine's Day, my friend! Take care.

I remember the days of trying to shop with babies and young children. It was SO difficult! I'm sure your RAK really helped her out.

Hi, Shug...have a lovely Valentine's weekend! Hubby is picking me up some flowers pretty soon to bring home.

Betsy Brock said...

Oh, that's very nice! I try to remember those days of toddlers and grocery shopping...stressful and tiring! I'm sure she was relieved to have you help in such a kind way! Perfect!

Thanks SO much for joining in my adventure...I'm getting such a kick out of reading about the love being spread all around!

What a beautiful thing to do.
Your RAK reduced her stress which means so much . . . . . it is great that Betsy has inspired us to do these things . . .
Nice to meet you ~ Eddie :)

Every little bit counts. "Give a little bit..." just like the song says. I'm sure your kindness was much appreciated.

Hey Shug.....I love that name! I'm visiting from Betsy's RAK. I'm sure your gesture greatly reduced this young mom's stress. I remember shopping with babies. And help of any kind was always welcomed.

I am sure that she appreciated that
Act of Kindness!

Happy Valentine's Day to YOU!
