Random Acts of Kindness Received today

Shopping today for some hair color. My mousy grey hair needs a lift. I remember when all the blonde colors were in the top 3 or 4 shelves but now are on the bottom two rows. I now know what brunettes had to endure when blonde was "in". Standing on one's head to read the boxes or sit on the floor.

Anyway, while searching for the color "Honey Butter", standing on my head in the aisle, a lovely woman noticed the brand (L'Oreal, light ash blonde) I had in my hand. She promptly handed me a coupon from that Company. I thanked her very much. It wasn't until later I discovered it was for a free box up to 9.99. WOW!

Later in the grocery end of the store, I met another woman at the egg counter. I was searching through the Egglands Best egg cartons. It was as if all the cartons had been dropped. Each box I opened was a mess of cracked and oozing eggs. I finally made room for this woman to get to the eggs, pushing my cart off to the side so DH could keep an eye on my purse and free up my hands to continue to look. I explained to the woman the issue with the eggs and trying to help her find a good box. She handed me the one she had and just swapped out one broken egg. She insisted I take it. I thanked her and brought it back to the cart where we checked it out again and sure enough we found more broken ones. She asked if we could check her box again and it was okay. A messy job made pleasant by a lovely person. We wished each other Happy New Year!

May you experience the lovely people out there during your travels. Happy New Year!
