Today, I was trying to think of a way to spread some Christmas cheer so on my way to the post office, I stopped at a florist and bought some flowers to give to the postal worker that helps me today. The lady at the florist was going to re-wrap the flowers and I stopped her because they were in a nice Christmas plastic and I told her what I was doing with them. She and another customer loved the idea. I wasn't telling them for recognition but so maybe they might decide to RACK someone too. It also made them feel warm and fuzzy too to know that I was doing it Just Because (like my book).
I was actually a little nervous standing in line at the post office. It was clear that the people in the long line were wondering what the flowers were for but no one asked. Inside, I am still a very shy person so it made me nervous to do it which is silly. She smiled and said thank you. I think she was a little taken aback. As we finished, she thanked me again and seemed very grateful.
You've been RACK'd! Random Acts of Christmas Kindness!
