Random niceness

Saturday morning.

No school.

I walk down to the gate to get the newspaper, 
which, as it is the weekend edition with about thirty sections, is folded in half in the box.

As I walk back up the drive I open it up, and find:

What made the surprise even nicer was how carefully the little bunch was arranged - they weren't just stuck in any which way, but painstakingly arranged so that they formed a little posy:

As far as I am aware, I don't know the person who delivers our paper, 
but he/she certainly put a smile on my face this morning!

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

  1. How lovely! What a wonderful surprise and wonderful start to your day!

    I collected my Saturday paper from my driveway, too, but there were no surprises awaiting me when I opened it up! I'll have to have a word with Gavin, my paper man! ;)

    I hope your day continues along that happy vein, Alexia. :)

    1. Thank you Lee :) It hasn't been too bad a day at all. I hope you had a lovely Saturday too!

  2. How simply lovely. Random acts of kindness are brilliant - to make and to receive. What a wonderful start to your weekend. I hope the rest follows suit.

  3. Nice surprise!

    I used to deliver the paper. My main trick was putting inside people's screen doors, so it wouldn't get wet or anything. Boy, were all those people in for a shock when my route was passed on to my younger brother...

  4. Well, isn't that sweet? What a nice little thing to do. :)

  5. Thanks people. Moving day coming up!!


It's great when you leave a note!
