Nothing can make your day/week/month/year more than a simple, random act of kindness. Last week I was the recipient of such an act.
It was actually more than simple. It was a well thought out act that took imagination, time, money and planning. And it was done for ME!
First of all… NO SPOILERS NO SPOILERS NO SPOILERS! I have watched every single episode of Breaking Bad EXCEPT FOR THE FINALE. My boys and I promised each other we would watch that together. They aren’t caught up yet. And so I wait.
I have a Heisenberg wallet. A Heisenberg shirt. And a Heisenberg car sticker. I am also the proud owner of a Los Pollos Hermanos shirt. Only two people have stopped me to talk about my shirt. Both times, it made my day.
A blogger friend of mine has watched EVERY episode of Breaking Bad with his wife. He and I chatted about it, as I have with the most amazing Meleah as well.
Little did I know that this incredible friend was sneaky. He asked for my address, stating that he had something to send me. Asking no questions, I passed it along. However, I admit to making a joke about how I thought it might be blue and made by Heisenberg. His response? “Ha!”
A small package arrived a week later. Its contents?
HA HA HA HA HE REALLY DID SEND HEISENBERG BLUE METH! Meleah and his wife were also the proud recipients of Heisenberg blue.
Yes, this was amazingly funny and a big surprise. But more than that, it was an unexpected gift that is still giving.
Throughout this busy week, there were moments when I would randomly remember my package and smile. Someone thought enough about me to surprise me with a fun and unexpected gift. This one act of kindness has continued to make me feel good well after it arrived on my doorstep.
With my next paycheck, I want to pass this good feeling along. I plan to perform my own act of kindness, hoping to make someone else happy as well.
Have you ever been the recipient of a random gift that made your day/week/month? What was it?
