Returning Kindness

Today I woke up thinking it was going to be just another day. It turns out that was only partly true. Because today, as my mother came into my room unannounced as she always does, I was still in my bed. She told me I received something in the mail. At first I was skeptical, thinking that it was going to be something about the bank or some adult stuff, but I was wrong. The people who work at the hair salon next to our apartment buildings sent me a Marvel magazine. It contained SHIELD files about some of the heroes, a poster, and some other things. I had talked with the woman who had taken care of me about Marvel, ComicCon, and many other things, but didn't think much of it. I also distributed "May Peace be with You" drawings to them and left some kind words everywhere I could, like I have done in many other places. With that small activity came thank you notes and kindness quotes; even a client from the salon sent me one! One of the notes said that my kind words did them a lot of good. I am so happy I could do this for them and they aknowledged my kindness like this. Today, I feel blessed and my heart is full of love. I'm crying. I guess it is true that kindness comes back to you after all.
