Random Acts of Kindness: Thoughtfulness

by Mindy Lockard on February 16, 2011

While we’re on the subject of Random Acts of Kindness, I thought it would be the perfect time to re-post one of my favorites.  It reflects on a time when I was the recipient of a random act of kindness, by one of my favorite people…

Some are students of schools of thought.  I am a student of my friend Jen’s school of thoughtfulness.  Not only did she graciously agree to pick-up our paper and mail while we were away on vacation, we arrived home to find this waiting on our back steps…


filled with this…


everything I need to get my little family of four through the first morning back from vacation: Natural farm eggs, bakery fresh whole wheat bread, homemade zucchini muffins, organic orange juice, bananas, and my all-time favorite beef from her family’s all-natural cattle ranch.


These are the random acts of kindness that friendships are built on and that set a standard for the type of friend I want to be.

Thanks, Jen!
