Today I'm linking up with Betsy for The Random Acts Of Kindness Adventure.
When my boys were in elementary school they always had Valentine's Day parties in their classrooms, complete with card exchanges. Each year at the beginning of February I'd take them to the store, where they'd pick out a box of inexpensive cards featuring some cultural reference they and their friends were into.
I grabbed a handful of the cards, put them into envelopes, and took them with me when I ran errands today. At each of the stores I gave a Valentine to the cashier (and at one store a couple of people I walked by in the parking lot). All of them looked surprised to receive a card from a stranger.
I purposely didn't sign my name on the back; if any of my 'valentines' want to re-gift the card to someone else I think that would only increase the pool of random acts of kindness.
