Random kindness

It’s rare lately that I even see, let alone experience, random kindnesses. But I just did. And I’m still a little stunned.

It’s no big deal, really. I just decided to grab a donut at Krispy Kreme (mmm, chocolate-iced, kreme-filled) and I paid for it. But I had been hoping for some sort of holiday-themed donut instead of my usual. And after I’d paid, I saw the sign for pumpkin spice donuts. Mmm, punkin. …

So I asked the girl if I could add two donuts to my bag. She said sure and gave them to me and walked away. I held up my money and said, “How much was that?” and she smiled and said, “Don’t worry. Enjoy.”

And at that moment, I smiled at her and said to myself, “I wonder if this is because I gave that homeless woman those bills that I’d had tucked above my sunvisor today.”

I don’t know — I’ve always believed that bad things come to those who deserve it. But perhaps it works on the small-scale kindness level, too.

In any event, that punkin donut? The best I’ve ever tasted. 😉

    Yay for your free donuts! I’m dying to try these pumpkin donuts, but getting to the nearest Krispy Kreme is a bit of a production.
