RAOK from Strangers

I went to the Goodwill store in Oldsmar to find Luke a chair for his desk because really, $50 for an 8yo's chair isn't happening. We found a chair (awesome) for $10 and another chair (kind of futon like but not really) for $8.99. I had my 3 kids and my neighbors 3 kids with me and we are up at the register.

The lady in front of me is talking down a price on the a bookshelf and is just astounded at how good the kids are being (except cj who is trying to pick up glass lawn ornaments) and buys Luke's desk chair for him saying she can see in his eyes how good of a child he is. As I am packing everything up in the van, she tells me that I must buy them Ice Cream and gives Luke $20 and drives off. All 6 kids got McDonald's for lunch.

The 11yo and 2 8yo's are just beside themselves in awe at how nice the lady was so I told them we need pay her kindness forward.

It's nice to see Random Acts of Kindness from Others as so many times we see the rage. Luke now wants to do something to pay it forward so we will be on a mission to do so :)
