the other day, i received some tea in the mail from overseas from my line sister. today i arrived to a bouquet of violet colored flowers resting on my desk. there was a post-it note attached that read, “something small to brighten up your day…as you brighten up the days of many others.” no name. it was a mystery, yet intentional. what a beautiful act of kindness. i returned the favor and gave a kindergartner a “fancy nancy” book, just to make her smile. i read aloud a special note, written by me. her eyes widen in surprise when i told her it was hers to keep. yesterday, i discovered love, today i found peace, this evening i delivered happiness. what a joy to be me.
[These are my open notes that I’ve hidden from the world. Over the next month, I am making them public until my birthday on April 14th.]
