Today is World Kindness Day!

I just caught wind that today is "World Kindness Day."  What a great day!  Since Oprah made the "Pay it Forward," random act of kindness pretty big a few years ago, I've wanted to take part in a day like this.  I'm racking my brain on what random act of kindness I can do, today, that might make someone's day--something small and smile provoking. 
 
What about you?  Any plans of your own today?  Have you ever been the receiver of a random act of kindness?  I'd love to hear!  Once, a stranger handed me a $20 bill at the grocery store as I was walking to checkout.  She handed me the envelope, smiled and walked away.  I was stunned, while it warmed my heart.
 
Thank you, Ann, of Jeremiah's Hope for Kindness for keeping up on all things kind in the world!

What a great idea for a day, though perhaps everyday should be kindness day :) xo. Cat

What a lovely thing to do! I'd love it if someone did that to me! I often do random acts of kindness, and I quite often have things happen back. Just the other day I dropped my favourite mittens but hadn't noticed and kept walking. A kind stranger picked them up and ran after me! A kind lady also once told me when the back of my dress was tucked into my underwear!! ;)

A stranger gave me a hug once. (With permission.) It was really sweet - and who doesn't need a hug?

I have been trying really hard lately to keep my eyes out for oppurtunities lately. I never can believe how blessed I feel after & it is so much fun even though I mean to keep them secret I always tell my husband :) I just can't resist :)

My husband is the kindness king & I am trying to learn from him...I doubt a day goes by that he doesn't help a stranger or friend...he is just wired that way!

Didn't know there was a kindness day but I should mark it on the calendar! LOVE the quote! & love reading Red Boots comment:)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
