Random Acts of Kindness

Have you ever had a random act of kindness presented to you?  It doesn't take much; sometimes I even think just a nice smile from a stranger or someone holding the door open can turn a day around.  I was actually fortunate enough to be gifted TWO random acts of kindness this weekend. 
Friday, I was about to pay for parking when a lovely gentleman and his wife stopped me and offered their parking ticket.  There was still more than an hour of paid parking left and they were leaving.  How nice is that? Such a simple gesture, but completely made my day!
Then, yesterday we were out for a little family lunch at Boston Pizza.  They currently have a promotion where if you make a donation to a certain charity, you get five free kids meals.  A complete stranger made a donation and then asked the restaurant's hostess to give it to us anonymously.  What?!?  He had left by the time we knew what happened.  But again, such a lovely random act of kindness.
It touched both Jeremy and I that a complete stranger would give us this gift.  Again, small but very impacting.
Have you ever performed a random act of kindness? Maybe this post will inspire you to do so!
