Sweet Like Candy...Valentines Random Acts Of Kindness
On Valentines our COTA class participated in a Random Act Of Kindness. Have you ever done this? If not, you should try it. The reactions you get back are priceless. Cota Class created watercolor 12 x 18 pieces of paper. They added salt and let it dry. Then the next day they cut hearts out of them and wrote notes on the hearts that were then delivered to each car in our parking lot at school. Well, and one motorcycle too.
We had several stories that were shared with us. Many folks paid it forward to another car in another parking lot around Tallahassee.
One teacher shared that she came upon a wreck. Everyone involved was safe but annoyed. A guy driving a truck was involved. You could tell he had just had the worst day. Our teacher, Cameron, had received 2 hearts on her car. Total fluke. She stopped her car. Got out. Walked over to the truck driver in the wreck and gave him a heart. It was much appreciated. You could just tell by his body language when she walked away.
Owner of the motorcycle had never experienced anything like this and was tickled especially at the words on his heart "Sweet Like Candy"
You see this simple act lead to many positive results. Kids are still talking about it. We encourage you to create art and pay it forward in a RAK kind of way. Are you up for the challenge?

I chose Glen Campbell because my Grandma (Ma Wini) used to listen to him. She has been on my mind a good deal lately. Check out below where we have blogged on her before:
