Days Ten, Nine and Eight of my RAOK Challenge
On the tenth day of random acts of kindness, the universe gave to me:
I desperately needed a new winter coat and noticed that Old Navy was having some super sales. Plus I found a coupon for 25% off so I knew I’d score a super deal there. I ran down there after my hubbie got home from work and picked out a pillowy, oven warm jacket that will totally help keep the Victoria winter chill out of my bones…so basically it’s good for 2 degrees and up! I was standing in line and pulling out my coupon when I noticed that my hubbie had accidentally printed off two. There was a lady in front of me waiting to pay so I tapped her on the shoulder and asked if she already had a coupon. She did not so I gave her my extra one and she also saved an extra 25% on her purchase. She was super thankful and wished me a merry christmas!
On the ninth day of randome acts of kindness, the universe gave to me:
I needed a couple of items to make dinner last week so I quickly stopped off at our local Safeway to grab them. As I pulled up, I noticed that there was a big transit bus parked in front of the store and a big sign saying they were accepting food donations to “stuff the bus!” I didn’t know this charity event was going on but when I went into the store and grabbed my couple of items, I decided to spend a few more minutes putting together a full bag of non-perishables and dropped them off to the charity on the way back to my car. I was so glad they were there as I hadn’t had a chance to go through my pantry yet for the food bank….which I promise to do this week!
On the eighth day of random acts of kindness, the universe gave to me:
I’ve had this basic ceiling fan for sale on UsedVic for months now and no one seemed to want it, even when it was thirty two degrees in the summer. So I was shoked when I got an email yesterday from a guy wanting to buy it. I have no idea what anyone would need a ceiling fan for in the middle of December (to push the smoke out of the house in case the turkey burns?) but I didn’t question him and told him he could come pick it up. I had to go out in the morning so I told him I’d leave it on the porch and he could just put the money in the mailbox. As I was about the leave the house, my RAOK angel tapped me on the shoulder and said, “hey why don’t you just give it him for free?” I replied, “what a fabulous idea!” and left a note on the ceiling fan wishing the man a merry christmas and that the fan was his for free!
Starting to feel the pressure as I’ve only got 7 days left until Christmas and still need to perfrom 7 more RAOKs! That’s literally 1 a day!! Universe, please don’t fail me now. Anyone else do an RAOK lately that they’d like to share?
