Kindness and Cookies -- Vegan MOFO #29
I am constantly astounded and humbled by the kindness of others. Today, I received a surprise package in the mail from someone. Well, the contents were a surprise, I was asked for my address. But, the point is that this is someone whom I've never met face-to-face; I know her only through Twitter. She's a lovely individual, always offering help and suggestions...and, now, cookies! She mailed me some absolutely delicious homemade cookies, which I have proceeded to devour. She also mailed me a spaghetti squash. I know, sounds funny, but we had a conversation a few weeks back about it. I've been unable to find it anywhere locally, and she remembered that. The surprise package was a simple reminder of how kind people are, and that we don't hear positive stories often enough. We're constantly barraged by negativity whenever we go out or watch television. So, I wanted to take today to do a special THANK YOU to a very kind and generous soul (you know who you are). One day, I'll return the kindness! Count on it.
