When I get compliments from total strangers, i consider those acts of kindness

But I always remember this one man that stopped to help me when I got into an accident (it wasn't a huge one). He gave me his number and name to contact him if in need of a witness. I thought that was pretty nice of him.

I had a blow out on the interstate that runs from Nashville to Louisville right outside of Nashville during rush hour. I was 18, by myself, and my cell phone wasn't working. A man stopped and put my donut on for me. It was so scary and I was so thankful.

No big ones, but I love it when people hold the door for me when I'm pushing the stroller.

I've had some people change some tires for me, which I ALWAYS appreciate!

Very recently though someone gave me a new cell phone. I was telling a dad from my play group how much I hated mine and he works for a company where he gets free ones to test so he just gave me an extra one that he had. I wanted to cry! To him it was no big deal, but I would never be able to get a new one and I really hated my old one.

The one that stands out most in my mind was when Bella and I had landed in Italy and an Italian airport employee gave me a luggage cart b/c I didn't have coin euro only paper euro...and two Americans helped push said cart since I had Bella in the stroller and she was crying.

Ooo also on the way back to the states I was able to link up with some other Americans who helped me navigate the Madrid airport(worst airport ever)! I am so thankful for them b/c I was so lost and I would have missed my flight if not for them. Stranded in a foreign country with my 18 month old daughter would not have been ideal.

*Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy!
