Here is a story from our Riley's Rainbows Facebook page that I would like to share with you from a sweet friend of ours named Sherry: “Not too long ago I paid for the person behind me at McDonalds. But that's not why I tell this story. A few days later I was in the drive thru again. But this time I couldn't find my card and didn't have enough cash. I pulled up to the window to explain and was told that the person in front of me had paid for mine. What a blessing!”
This story makes my heart SO full and that is exactly why we do this on behalf of our sweet Riley! Not only do I LOVE that Sherry shared her own story of showing kindness to another with us, but to know that only a few days later, in the same setting where she had shown an act of kindness, she received an act of kindness herself.
It gives me chills that she couldn’t find her card and didn’t have cash (Trust me, I’ve been there!) and that she then received a random act of kindness from the customer in front of her. Not only this, but that it was at a time where she needed a little help as well. There is no way that the customer could’ve ever known that she was in a situation like she was.
That is just an affirmation, in my opinion, that God is working on the behalf of all of us to help spread kindness throughout our communities and beyond. If we all just take a small amount of time out of our day to do something kind for one another it can create a domino effect and hopefully spread like wildfire!
Sherry’s story is truly an inspiration! I am so grateful to hear the circulation of love and kindness she received through her experience, especially in the climate that we are unfortunately experiencing in our country today.
I can’t thank Sherry enough for sharing her story! She is truly a testament to the fact that showing kindness to one another can make a difference in this world. If I could, I would reach out and give Sherry a huge hug right now! #rileysrainbows #randomactsforriley #kindnessmatters
