This past weekend we got some interesting mail. Here is a picture of it....minus our address....since I'm so famous that I'm sure to get some creepers if I give it out.
If you notice, there is no name or signature to this post card. I sat looking at it for a while. Looked to make sure it was sent to the right house. Make sure that I'm not missing some hidden message. There wasn't anything to give me a clue of who sent it.
To me, it looks like an older child did it with the circles for the dot of the I's. It also looks as though a parent was there to help out finishing up the post card as the penmanship does change both in the message and the address part of the post card.
We may never know who sent this post card but Mike gloated for a bit since he is the one that does most of the yard work and tries hard to keep up with it even when we have busy lives. I also felt a bit proud that someone noticed our small little house and thought it was nice looking!
Was this a random act of kindness? Or a random act of creepiness? When I told people about it, I got both reactions. My mom was sure someone was trying to find me. I'm sorry Mom but I've been found. They have my address. Other people thought it was nice that someone took the time to do it. Others found it just weird. We liked it...and I think that's all that matters.
Do you ever do random acts of kindness? 'tis the season.
A week or so ago I bought the coffee for the person behind me at Starbucks. I've done it a few times and each time the cashier looks at me oddly and asks "Do you know them?" Then I tell them I do not and they always ask "So why are you doing it?" In my honest opinion, they shouldn't be asking me that. They should get it enough that they know exactly why I'm doing it without further explanation. My response is easy though "Because I can."
I honestly just hope to make their day. It might work. It might not. I can just hope that it continues and when they can pay it forward they take the opportunity to do so.
Do you do random acts of kindness?
Do you think the post card is creepy or kind?
