Random Act of Kindness

One of the people I work with, Dee, is a true inspiration of someone who "walks the walk".  She helps run the food bank at her church, collects much-needed clothing and supplies for teens and disperses them, and I have known her to randomly leave anonymous gifts for co-workers.  She is an AMAZING crafter, and her tiny crochet bears are unbelievable.

 But one thing she does at work is so incredibly nice. She makes soft, warm baby hats in her spare time, and then when a patient who is an infant or toddler comes in for a visit, she gives them a brand new hat! It's so fun to see little kids in the waiting room with brightly colored caps on, all lovingly made by Dee.  She does this on her own, no one at work asks her to do this, and she buys all the materials herself.  Just think of the simple joy she gives a new mom that comes in, and a stranger makes her a baby a hat, just for the pleasure of it.  I'm really lucky to witness it!

How awesome and you are fortunate enough to be able to witness this wonderful random act of kindness. If only more people were like her this would be a much better world to live in. Please give Dee my best and thank you for posting this uplifting blog
