Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Day Full Of Blessings

--by Mums, posted Jul 31, 2012

Some days are just so full of blessings you don't know what to do! Today was one of those.

My neighbor needed to avoid a utility shut-off, so I helped her round up the money to cover it. It was mutually beneficial and not really a favor but she appreciated the help. (I bought some stuff from her that she had no use for but I would have probably purchased anyway.)   
When I got home I found a wet $20 bill plastered to the ground in the street. 
Another friend had coupons and rewards and treated me to a good movie and wonderful dinner at a little cafe. At the diner, I saw a man and his three adorable little girls having a frugal meal. He looked a little stressed, so I used the $20 bill I had found and paid for their meal. 
The waitress was so surprised by this that she wanted to hear the whole story. It really seemed to make her day.
When I got home again my oldest daughter was there with a sinfully rich chocolate pie she had made and brought over for us to try. 
No sooner had we enjoyed a cup of coffee and a slice of pie than another friend called and asked if it was a good time to drop off some groceries she'd been given but won't likely eat. 
Sometimes the incidents of one day just make you wonder what you ever did to deserve such a bounty of goodness.
