Hey there! I'm Michelle, a Literacy Coach in a Chicago Suburb. So excited for the SOLSC...this year I'm participating *and* I've got a group of student bloggers writing, too! Love sharing blogging with them, and all of you!
About a week ago, the nicest thing happened. I needed to go to my favorite little jewelry boutique, Francesca's. The closest one to me is within walking distance...just not in the winter. So, I was mentally preparing myself to fight for parking, crossing my fingers that I could do a parallel on North Avenue in one swoop as to not embarass myself, and cursing the mayor that sold off the parking meters, now creating a 30 minute parking cost of about $2.
But then, the heavens opened, the sun shined down, and I was blessed.
I went on the side streets a different way up to North Ave so I could hopefully park right in front. As I came up the side street, it was such good luck, because this couple had just unlocked their car and it was a perfect place to park....on a side street and right by the pay box. So, I put my blinker on and waited patiently until they left.
Just as I expect them to take a right onto North, I notice that the guy puts the car in park. Next thing I know, he's walking up to my window, parking sticker in hand and giving it to me, because it still had 40 minutes left on it.
Nicest thing ever!
I only needed about 30 minutes to run in and get a new necklace to match my new dress, and nice people make it even more convenient. What a great day.
Have you done any Random Acts of Kindness lately? I'm definitely paying this one forward!
