A Random Act of Kindness

March 22, 2014  
  These alstromerias are a random act of kindness. I was out for a walk on a recent Sunday afternoon when a car pulled over. A man half my age thrust a bouquet of flowers forward and said “Would you like these? I had a date and it’s off and you know guys don’t like flowers.” I smiled and said “Yes, thank you.”  
  He didn’t know alstromerias are a favorite of mine and that they matched my new tablecloth.
