Many memories from my years of Sunday school attendance surface, reminding me that we should do things for others as we travel through this life. I worry that I don't do enough of that. So I'm making a list of ways I can help others, even when I don't have extra money to spare. There are lots of small ways we can offer up random acts of kindness on a regular basis and most of them are affordable. For many years I've made it a policy when crossing the Bay Bridge to pay for the car behind me. I always hope they pass it on. Frequently I have paid for the person behind me in the drive thru line at Taco Bell. At Aldi's grocery store you must put a quarter in a slot to get a cart. When you return the cart and re-hook the chain to their train of carts your quarter pops back out. What an ingenious way to keep the lot clear of carts, but there are times when I run in to shop only to realize I don't have a quarter in my purse — only nickels, dimes and pennies. That made me think. So, last week when I picked up my cart I dug out the extra quarters in my purse and put them in the slots of other carts. I hope giving a random quarter encourages the next person to leave a quarter, too— for the next person and the next. There are so many ways that small acts can make a difference. I am making a list that I can use in the future.
