The random kindness of a stranger….Posted: October 14, 2015
I was walking, head down, eating a sandwich with my headphones on. Almost no one on the streets in the rain. Heading to work. Heavy thoughts swirling around my mind.
A tourist walks by and stops me. Yes, stops me. I’m irritated to be thrown out of my bubble and ungraciously I take off my headphones to help him.
“I really love your rain slicker” said in a British accent with smiling eyes.
I blink, taken aback, shaken out of my mental mire. “Thank You”, I automatically reply.
And all of a sudden, I feel better about Life because the random kindness of a stranger.
I wonder what he really saw, looking at me.
