Spreading Smiles On a Father-Daughter Date Night!
--by MakeSomeoneSmile, posted Jul 14, 2013
Many times on our date nights we try to do an act of kindness of our own, as she is often my sidekick on our kindness adventures.
My latest Smile Deck card is one about anonymously buying a stranger's meal so I asked Rachel if we should find someone in the restaurant and buy their dinner. She loved the idea so we chose an older couple sitting behind us. I had a few Smile Cards on me (as always!) so we discretely told our server our plan. He was new and wasn't sure how to do it but said he would go and find out.
When he dropped off the checks, he smiled at us and told us he would give them the Smile Cards and that the world needed more people like us. Rachel got the biggest smile on her face when he said that to her and I love that he helped remind her that kindness matters. My daughter normally likes to stay and watch the reactions of our kindness "victims" but we had to get going.
When we got home she was so excited to tell her Mom about what we did. My wife told Rachel how nice that was and how it would spread many smiles with the server, his manager, the couple and anyone else they told about the experience. We love any ripple of kindness we can send out into the world and I'm sure we made the couple smile with that one last night!
Many smiles to you.
Many blessings to you and your family MSS :)
