The majority of my job involves working with clients. I had been in contact with one of our clients by email and phone over the past week or so. They had been very appreciative of the work done on our end. Yesterday afternoon, flowers were delivered to me at the office. It was a thank you gift from that same client. It was a wonderful surprise that totally made my day. The picture on the left is of the lovely gift I received.
But not all acts of kindness have to involve flowers or gifts. When I was in elementary school, we had a random acts of kindness (RAK) week. It was a time to think about what you could do for others. It could be something as simple as opening the door for someone, or lending a friend your notes if they missed a class. But once I got to junior high, we no longer had the RAK week. And it was a shame, because kindness is something that should be shared all the time. Some think that kindness has to be extravagant and over the top. But that’s not true. Taking time to show others that you care about them doesn’t require money, gifts, or grandiose gestures. Even a smile can brighten someone’s day.
What are some kind things you’ve seen or done?
