Hmm, a random act of kindness. Let me think… Alright, I’ve got it.
Nine months ago, my family and I went back to the USA for a brief Christmas visit. While in the USA, we split our time between Saint Albans, West Virginia and Chicago, Illinois. My mom came from Chicago, so we spent time with her parents (my grandparents), then went down to West Virginia, where my dad’s parents live. Now, even though it was close to Christmas, I still had classes at the online school, Veritas Scholars Academy. I decided to do them at a nearby coffee shop, Coal River Coffee. So, early Tuesday morning, I found myself doing the class in a coffee shop. Halfway through the class, I was startled by a tap on my shoulder. Looking up, I saw a smiling waitress holding a steaming cup of coffee. Having been at the coffee shop many times, they knew that I love black coffee, and they had decided to give me a free cup, knowing that I didn’t have any money (it’s funny but true). Thus, I was able to do class while drinking a free cup of quality coffee.
Ok, let me clarify something. I don’t just tell stories about people giving me free drinks (see my Random Acts of Kindness post, found here). I promise I have more stories than that. However, these simple acts of giving me free drinks have stuck with me, and I will never forget that simple act of love.
Alright, now to tag someone. I nominate pkadams, found here. Have fun!
As always, guys, thanks for reading! I truly appreciate your support and hope you have a wonderful day.
