Overwhelmed By My First Random Act Of Kindness
--by clnemeth, posted Mar 26, 2011
I just received my first random act of kindness and it has left me feeling really overwhelmed.
Just last night my husband and I sat down to discuss our finances. Since his divorce 5 years ago and my job loss 18 months ago things have been going steadily down hill. We are living on overdraft, borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and we came to the sad conclusion that we will have to sell his prized 52 Chev pick-up truck which has been in the family for 55 years! He restored it from scratch 10 years ago.
Feeling depressed today, I decided to go to the local mall for a coffee, as I was leaving I noticed what looked like a $20 bill folded up beside the pay phone. Wrapped up inside was a smile card! I could not believe this was happening to me at this point in time and simply had to come home and check out this website! How amazing.
I have been deeply touched by this and I plan to pay it forward in whatever way I can. Hopefully this is a sign of better things to come in 2011.
Thanks so much whoever you are!!
It is especially great to hear that someone in need found the smile card with the money.
Thanks so much for sharing your story with us and i hope life has improved for you and your husband.
God, may u always use me to bless another person in need
Have a sunshine day! :)
This is such a touching story! So glad someone found about the site through thus smile card.
Ok i'm getting my smile cards tmrw!
Love and blessings, and please do all you can to keep that truck! (i have wanted a truck like that for decades. )
