Today I am thankful for kind strangers, the ones who remind me what it means to be good. I went shopping with my sweet nieces, and a woman totally unknown to me walked up and gave us a bear from Build-A-Bear. We weren't looking particularly dejected or poor. We were happy to be out on a Christmas shopping date, in fact. But, this kind woman was looking for a good deed to do, and so gave us a teddy bear. Moments like that remind me to be just a little more generous, a little kinder, and a keep my eyes a little more open for opportunities to serve. If you haven't read my letter to strangers just like her, check out this post, as it expresses what I'm thinking today much more eloquently.
