I went to my mailbox yesterday and there was a surprise in there for me. I saw the address of where it was from and couldn’t imagine why I was getting mail from her. I opened it up and found this!
It totally made my day! My friend Shannon is someone I knew since I was a teenager. She moved away and then I found her through another friend on Facebook in 2008. What an amazing thing social media is. We both have 2 young children and love running. We have busy lives but we stay in touch with each other every day. We try to meet up when I come down to Florida for the races and saw each other briefly during marathon weekend this past January, but it wasn’t long enough!
Friends are so great to have! I didn’t realize how much I mean to her so I am so glad she took a minute to find that card and send it along my way! Something as little as mailing a card to someone can really add to their day. Take some time to do something nice for someone! You have no idea how much it can help them.
Has anyone done a random act of kindness for you lately? Have you done something for someone else? If not, do you plan to?
