Random Act of Kindness Give Away for August

To Enter my Blog this month all you have to share with us is a Random Act of Kindness you have done or that you have witness being done. You know like a Hallmark Moment that makes you smile or brings tears to your eyes. Moments that ordinary people have reached out their hands to shown some compassion and kindness to complete strangers, friends, neighbors or loved ones that need a helping hand.  Moments that have changed the course of time and enriched everyone's life's who have witnessed them.

Let me share with you a Random Act of Kindness my husband and I saw this morning:

  Early this morning as my husband and I were leaving Walmart we witnessed such a moment. We were approaching the red light leaving Walmart and this elderly man that looked to be in his 80's must have been stopped at the light to make a left into the parking lot and his vintage car from the 1940's must have stalled at the light. Now this wasn't one of those refurbished classic cars you see at Cruise Inn's or Antique car shows. This looked like the original car this man bought when he was in his 20's. It was showing signs of age with some rust and it looked to be the original paint job.

  The gentleman that was behind him was already out of his car helping this stranger push his vehicle out of the middle of the road towards the parking lot.  As we were leaving the parking lot and  came to a stop at the light to make a right,  a man that was making a right into the Walmart parking lot pulled off the road and ran over to help the 2 men push.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw my husbands hand reach for the seat belt release and the other hand reach for the car door. (I was driving)  Just then the old man jumped into the drivers seat as it started to roll down the hill into the parking lot. My husband smiled and said "sometimes all those old cars need is a hill to get um to start". The kind men helping let go with big smiles on there faces and proceeded to walk back to there cars.  It was early Saturday morning around 8:a.m. so there wasn't a lot of traffic but traffic was held up nonetheless. I noticed there were no horns blowing, no  people shaking their fists, no one was shouting obscenities,  everyone I looked at was just smiling.  Our light turned green and we drove away. This random act of kindness didn't take long to complete but I'm sure the dozen or so people that witnessed it spent the better part of the day remembering it just like I have.

   My husband enjoyed reading all the entries last month so much he has agreed to do it again this month. So the winner will be chosen again by my husband of 20 yrs, who is always willing to help out where and when ever he can.

He will read all entries and choose the winner on our Anniversary - August 30th.

The prize is this set of 6 Vintage Dinner Napkins by Stone Cottage Ltd.
They have never been used and still have the tags on each one.

AND THE WINNER IS...........

Totally Unique Treasures.........

I want to Thank everyone for entering my first ever blog giveaway. Just so you know my husband had a difficult time picking the winner. He teared up several times when reading the entries as I knew he would. Reading Totally Unique Treasures post reminded us that God has a plan you might not be able to see it or understand it now, but a plan does exist. We all have to believe that Good things can come from  devastation and sadness. That is something worth believing in.
