Random Acts of Kindness and Tender Mercies

So yesterday I left you with some serious frustration with my scales.  Not an earth shattering problem, but a nuisance to say the least. 

Today I come with much happier - warm fuzzy inducing - news.  I had some places to be this morning, and left early on my adventures.  I had just enough time to do my things and then pick 'Lil up from her special ed preschool.  When we returned home, guess what was sitting on my porch bench?  A brand new scale. 

My husband insists he didn't buy it (and I believe him. When he does something sweet, he makes sure I know all about it so he gets the credit).  The only thing I can  think of is that someone local, who reads my blog, decided to be an angel in disguise. 

Of course, I only know of about 2 people who fit that description.  And if they don't want to come forward, I'm not going to name any names.  But it was the sweetest thing that's happened to me in a long time.

I love having your needs met by strangers (or good friends pretending to be strangers!).  God is good.  And people are good too.  I truly believe when we expect the best from others, we usually get it. 

But this has also inspired me to look around and see what I could do for someone else.  I want to be a blessing to someone else too.

So go out - live your life - but look for someone else to help.  It might make their week!
