Lethargic. That’s how I’m currently feeling. I haven’t done much on my off day. I did a little bit of running around for some household items, and snagged a coffee. But I kept it to a minimum because I’m still in a LOT of pain. While I was at wal-mart though, I almost ran into a lady cutting a corner. She was really sweet. We had made small talk in passing and continued on our separate path’s. About two hours later, I ran into her again in a different store. She noticed me first, but if we’re going to be honest I probably wouldn’t have remembered her facial features at all. I was in my own little world, holding toilet paper and paper towels in my hand. She was in front of me at the check out and walked right up to me like we were old friends. She took the things out of my hand and set them on the counter and said “Here my dear, take a load off, set these things right here” She then hugged me and kissed me on my cheek and told me she loved me. She said “I can’t believe we meet again! What a pleasant surprise!!” It seemed like she truly meant it, and that she was actually happy to see me. I couldn’t help but wonder what in her life made her so happy. What made her just, LOVE life so much? To spread that onto other people, people she don’t know. People who, underneath it all, actually need that type of stuff in their lives. I wonder if I’ve ever been that silver lining in someone’s life like that. That random ‘Maybe the world isn’t such a bad place after-all’ type of person. I hope that at some point, I have been. I hope that in the future, I could be. The world needs more of that. Of random people with random acts of kindness. I guess that whole “Be kind, because you never know what someone is going through” thing holds to be true.
Thank you, random lady. Thank you.
