🐇 The Hare & The Tortoise Both Win! 🐢
--by mindyjourney, posted Mar 16, 2023
The weather for the outdoor ARK tour (Amos Rehabilitation Keep) had turned cold, windy and drizzly.
“I have a sweater on under my hoodie. Would you like to borrow the hoodie?” I asked a woman who was shivering, as I unzipped it and offered my Peace Garden hoodie to her.
She agreed, only after I assured her that I would be fine.
A film crew making a documentary about the ARK shadowed the tour. Our guides, Lucky and her husband Dan, were knowledgeable about the rescued raptors, various birds and turtles.
Impressed with their enthusiastic volunteerism, I anonymously gave the front desk a gift for them - a coloring suncatcher of a turtle that I had fashioned with positive sayings.
Back in South Dakota, over 1300 miles northwest and about a month ago, I had created the suncatcher with faith that the right opportunity would present itself to give.
Acting quickly on that nudge to offer my hoodie and preparing a creative thank-you ahead of time, both won kindness opportunities that day!
