Random Act of Kindness

A Court of Thorns and Roses

I hope everyone is doing well. I have a cute story that I just couldn’t pass up telling you guys. So on Monday night me and my friend decided to go out for a walk. Originally we were planning on just going to Dunkin Donuts but that didn’t really end up working out so we went over to Barnes & Nobles. We were looking around and all of a sudden came across the signed section. There were so many good ones but I decided I was going to pick A Court of Thorns and Roses. I’ve been dying to read this book for ages and I loved owning signed copies so why not. My friend ending up picking Perks of Being a Wallflower. So as we are getting ready to go up the escalator and this woman stops us. She tells me she has a question. So she asks me how much my book cost. I told her how much and she said she’s going to buy the book for me. I am standing there looking at this lady in couple shock. I kept asking her if she was being serious and she said yes she was. She then went on to explain she had just went to talk to her priest and they talked about her doing nice for someone for reconciliation and she just felt this feeling about buying the book for me. I almost started to cry because this is honestly so sweet. I was ready to buy all her books or take her out to eat or something. I gave her a huge hug and couldn’t stop thanking her. She gave me 20 dollars and then went on her way. I really still can’t get over the kindness this lady showed for me. I am forever thankful for people like her. I really wish I knew her name or something so I could tell her how happy I’ve been this week because of her.
