Random Acts of Kindness: Surprise with a Note of Thanks

Random Act of Kindness

 

One of my favorite acts of random kindness is sending an unexpected basket from Edible Arrangements. While I love flowers, I love fruit more :-)

One year, I sent a basket to the compliance department at Scentsy, which is based here locally. The Scentsy employees had the unfortunate task of contacting consultants who were not adhering to corporate policies. I couldn’t imagine having to deal with that on a day to day basis, and the basket was a way to show appreciation, knowing that their work is important.

Another time, I sent a basket to a friend, whose daughter was hospitalized with a horrible respiratory infection. I knew that eating healthy foods was difficult in this situation but also important for this particular mom.

And today, I sent another to a group of people who I am sure work very hard, are often under-appreciated, but who make our literary world that much better.

Often I find myself surrounded by people whose jobs aren’t glorious, are sometimes messy, and sometimes even make others disappointed. But their roles are just as important, and they help keep order. Who do you know who may be under appreciated? What can you do tonight to reach out and say thanks?

I hope this finds you surrounded by peace and joy. And if not, let me know how I can help.
