Random Acts of Kindness

Around here, on the weekends, various charities will set up at intersections and collect money for their various causes, as traffic waits for the signal light.

Sunday, a church group was doing this, or so I thought, as I was headed to the supermarket.

Sure enough, the signal turned red, and I was forced to wait in line.

All I had on me was my debit card, no cash. I didn’t even have any change in my change compartment in my Jeep.

So I sat there, with my head down, trying not to catch the “eye” of one of the volunteers.

I was like the world’s worst outfielder praying, “don’t hit the ball to me, don’t hit the ball to me”.

But as it happend, a lady came to the door on the passenger side of my Jeep and motioned for me to roll down my window.

I looked at her and signaled with a pathetic shoulder shrug and my arms raised showing her my hands, and I hoped she would get the message that I had no money to give.

She insisted again with the standard “roll down your window” sign.

So I did.

She smiled and said,”We aren’t collecting money, God bless you!” and she handed me a Milky Way candy bar.

I managed a smile and said, “Thank you”, as the light turned green and I headed on to the supermarket.

Funny thing was; I was still smiling when I pulled into the parking lot.
