I went to go get a drink from the water fountain on the fourth floor of the Harold B Lee Library on campus at BYU. On top of the water founatin was a laminated card with a blue sticky note that said, "For you! Remember, you're awesome and you'll rock those finals! :)" The laminated card it was attached to had a quote that said: "Fear and faith cannot coexist in our hearts at the same time. -Neil L. Andersen." It was awesome! Definitely made me smile. This is the second random act of kindness that has happened to me in the last week and it really does make a difference. It reminds you that people are aware and concious of you and finals aren't going to kill you.
Found a random Easter Egg and on a hunch picked it up. I was afraid I was interfering with some children's egg hunt, but a note inside confirmed that it was for me (or for whoever happened to pick it up). I love candy, and I love whoever put it there. :)
I am a single mom with 4 children. I just recently moved from living at the Road Home to a basement apartment. The landlord told me that she started a new job and the team she was on wanted to help me out with buying some Easter items for my children. I am so grateful for the help because two days prior my wallet was stolen and it had $250 in it. I was devastated, so when she showed me the Easter items the team bought I got a bit teary eyed. It made my whole day, week and probably month. So THANK YOU to all of you!
I came to work feeling a bit frustrated because my kids are sick and now my poor wife is too. Didn't get much sleep last night and kind of dreading the day. Then my cheerful coworker came by and gave me a donut. Definitely helped things get back on track a bit!
