Kindness is contagious

A random act of kindness goes a long way, doesn't it? And it's so contagious!

Recently I was at the grocery store. My cart was quite full, so I stuck a couple of the larger items on the shelf underneath the cart. When I got out to my car, a woman came up behind me and asked whether I'd had a package of Kleenex boxes. She said she saw a package beside the door going out of the store and thought it might be mine. Then she offered to stay by my full cart and my car while I ran back to retrieve the tissues. In no time, I was back at my car with all the boxes of tissue where this woman had been waiting in the cold to guard my cart.

I thanked her profusely and told her that I would pay it forward to someone else, which I have done more than once. I was so grateful to her. I would not have been happy had I arrived home with no Kleenex even though I'd paid for it. As it was, I arrived home with a huge smile on my face and a light and happy heart.

Kindness is really so easy—and often it doesn't cost a thing. Hmmm, wonder what I can do today?
