Sharing Sundays... an instagram favorite.

Sometimes on Sunday, I usually share an item i love on etsy. I used to share blog crushes and i miss doing that. I'm going to add instagram favorites to Sunday posts because I wanted to share one in particular that i just had to share.

It's from Jessica Kesterson's feed.

#30actsofkindness Leaving a Starbucks card for a busy mom in a changing station...


I just LOVE that. As a new mama, this act of kindness is enough to make me cry. More importantly, it's inspiration to do the same.

(another idea, what my brother did here)

Have you ever done anything similar? Or have been the recipient of kindness from a stranger? 

*Amanda, your comment below-- wow. You married an "Adam Braverman" alright ;)

What a great idea! I would probably think I were being pranked if anyone did something like that. Can you imagine? I would look side-to-side to see who was doing it. Random Acts of Kindness make my day....I had a $10 off of a $100 purchase at Target coupon that expired that same day that I couldn't use (my total was only $40) and gave it to a mom with a few screaming, wild kids. She was so shocked! I wasn't really out any money, so it felt like a *cheat* but I could tell she needed that smile. Hopefully, she took the $10 she saved and bought herself a bottle of wine. :)

So incredibly sweet. There are so many people who could use one of these lil random acts of kindness this season. Thanks for sharing, sweet girl!

I haven't done anything on this scale, but I'd like to! I turn over pennies if they're not on the right side and leave them for someone else.

Oh that would be a very welcomed surprise!

Hubby does Random acts of kindness all the time - it makes me love him even more.

I can remember one time the lady in front of us was trying to buy a pack of diapers but her card got declined. Without hesitation he reached into his wallet and gave her $30 - said we've been there, keep the change. She was so thankful that she started to cry.

Such a lovely idea, it does make me wish that I did more little things for people.

Random acts of kindness are my fav! I think I get more joy from leaving them if I ever would finding one myself!
