Random Acts of Kindness

Have you ever been the recipient of a random act of kindness?  I occasionally do nice things for the people around me, but typically its related to a birthday or to return a favour. I don't expect anything in return either.  I usually get a bit of a warm fuzzy feeling when I've made someone's day.

But when the tables are turned and someone does something thoughtful and kind just for you - especially first thing in the morning it can be a game changer.  I was having a usual Wednesday morning... I accidentally cut someone off on the way into work.  I do emphasize the word accidentally.  But other than that, it was the usual mid week routine.  Until I arrived at my desk as saw this.......

My co-worker Deb who is an awesome cook discovered Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips and made the recipe on the back of the bag.  She brought a lot of the cookies just me!  I did share these with a few people in the department - including the two guys I ran 8k with at lunch.  Ok - I bribed then with the promise of cookies if we picked up the pace a bit.  I also shared with my kids... geez this sounds like the magic porridge pot of cookies.

Nonetheless the fact that she would bring these cookies in a share them with me totally made my day.  They were amazing too.  Here is the link to the recipe. The next time I'm out and about I'm picking up a bag of these.  I think this recipe would make a great valentine's treat for the kids or maybe just me.
