Random acts of kindness

Last Thursday, I came home from work and found 3 new plants in my front yard? At first – I thought it might be a nice gesture of a neighbor or even my father or our gardner. All of these likely sources denied planting anything in our yard. It was quite a mystery to my husband and I….we kept asking family members, neighbors and none of them owned up to the mystery planting.

The three little plants are lovely and it appears that they might be plumerias or fuschias. Needless to say we are enjoying them – and we still don’t know who did the good deed – there was no note or message; just freshly raked dirt and lovely plants. Below is a quick snapshot from my iPhone of the plants.


There is another group of gardeners that perform yard work in our neighborhood and usually on Saturdays; often my husband will take them out some cold drinks and says hello to them in Spanish. I am now thinking it might be their good deed.

Random acts of kindness are just that….good deeds at random and most of time they are anonymous. No matter when they occur – the lesson is to treat others with kindness everyday. Happy July 8th, here’s your official invitation to treat someone with kindness.
