  • Honestly yesterday! I had a double stroller i didn't need anymore and gave it to a family who could use it. I try to do that with all the things i no longer need but can still be used. It feels good helping other people and i just hope that when i might need help someone will give me the same thing.

  • I'm not sure if it's a random act of kindness (my neighbors don't seem to care) but I'm always picking up garages that have tipped over and little pieces of trash that have fallen out.

  • Garages?

  • I honestly cannot recall when the last time was. Not that I don't to RAK's often but I don't mark them down to memory. I just do them. I hold doors open, I let people in front of me in lines if they just have a few things, I smile at fussing babies to try to calm them down, etc.. I didn't go anywhere Sat. or Sun. except to see a movie on Sat. but I am sure that some time last week I did something to help someone. I have a vague memory of holding a door open for a lady at the mall who had her hands full and I don't know if it counts but on Sat. I held the door open when I was leaving the restroom for the girl who'd opened it for me when I went in. I don't really count that as an RAK though.

    I can recall the last RAK someone did for me. Today at the grocery store I just had a gallon of milk and the woman next in line had a full cart & she let me go ahead of her since I just had milk. I thanked her for letting me go next.

  • Today I checked on my coworker who had a surgical procedure done on her back (herniated disk). It's not serving in a soup kitchen or being a missionary, but this kind of stuff makes a difference and is easy to do on a regular basis. It is so simple to just show another person that they matter and that someone cares about them. Since my time and finances are limited, it's often the most I can do, but these types of kindnesses make a world of difference. All you have to do is care about people and not be selfish in the process. What is the nicest thing anyone's ever done for you? Often it's just paying attention, isn't it?
