A random act of kindness

I think the world could use a bit of extra kindness right now. This morning I tried to do a little random act of kindness but it didn’t quite go to plan!

This day didn’t start well. The kids, who are usually awake before 7.00, decided to have a lie in! We woke up 45 minutes late. It was a panic to get ready for school and preschool. I turned into shouty mum! We somehow got out of the door at a reasonable time. It was absolutely pouring with rain. We got completely soaked on the walk to school.

On the way we saw two young women stood at a junction dressed as pizza boxes advertising a takeaway pizza place. They were getting drenched and looked really sorry for themselves. I was having a crappy morning but at least I wasn’t in fancy dress in the freezing rain!

After dropping the kids off I decided to buy coffee for the pizza box women to cheer them up. I grabbed two takeaway lattes and headed back to where I’d seen them. Only they weren’t there anymore! Now I was standing in the rain with more coffee than I could drink myself and no one to give them to.

Me with soaking hair and my latte!

Still wanting to spread a little kindness I decided to give the coffee to a stranger. I stopped the next person I passed and asked her if she wanted a cup of coffee. It was a little awkward! She looked very confused but took the drink and said thank you.

I drank the other coffee myself as I hurried home to get into the warm and dry!  At least I tried – even if it did turn out a bit more random than I’d planned.

Have a good day guys x
