As my son Ben and I returned to my in-laws' gated neighborhood this morning (after a great run in a local park!), we had to go to the security guardhouse to get the "token" that's used for entry. I figured it was as good a time as any to begin our day with an act of kindness. When the woman reached out to hand me the token, I asked her if she liked Chick-Fil-A. With a smile, she said that she definitely did and so I gave her a Chick-Fil-A gift card. That definitely brought an even bigger smile.
Later in the day we were walking through Colonial Williamsburg when a tourist couple asked if we knew where they could get the CW bus back to the Visitors' Center. I was able to easily give them the directions they needed. When I was in school here, this used to happen a lot, and of course, I rarely seemed to have the answers back then. It's nice to be able to help now!
