okay, so here's the deal...
i've talked a few times about the joy of performing random acts of kindness.... i live for doing things like this... makes me feel so good. on monday i recieved a package... thinking it was my ebay order of scrapbooking goods i ripped into the box like a madwoman... what? a cast iron skillet? i didn't order this! looking at the invoice i see it reads
"to diane, happy birthday, love mom and dad"
omg... this poor girl is not gonna get her birthday present!
thnakfully the sender's address was on the invoice and he lived in Novato, CA, the town where i work
call 411 and get his #
my phone call with him went like this
nikki- Hello, Michael?
Michael- yes this is michael
n- hi, i live in rohnert park and recieved a package for yuor daughter's birthday present... the cast iron skillet....
n- so i have been wanting to get a cast iron skillet for a few years so i just wanted to say thankyou... i love it!
n- just kidding... how would you like me to get it back to you?
m- um, i guess i could drive and pick it up
n- well isee you live in novato, i work there so i can just swing it by your house
m- oh my icouldn't ask you to do that
n- no big deal, i'm there everyday for work. consider it done!
so i dropped it by his houe yesterday and he thanked me with a wonderful bottle of wine (drank it last night and i am a bit hung over.... but it was good wine!)
so here's the purpose of my post.... i want to see what random act of kindness you are gonna do today. it could be something small like or big.... just try to make a difference in someone's day...
afterwards leave a comment describing your RAK here on my blog. I will draw a winner on Friday who will recieve a starbucks goodie bag... yum! coffee!
check back on friday to see who won!
