Last summer, as I was walking through our downtown park, a purse snatcher grabbed my purse from behind me and started running off with it; but, a good samaritan - a man walking with his wife saw what happened and ran fast after him and scared him into letting go of my purse still unharmed. I was so grateful that I started a blessing box at home, to keep notations inside it of random acts of kindness in my life, so I can look through them on days when life feels too difficult and unhappy.I would like to see postings here from readers about similar true stories of random acts of kindness. What do you think of the blessing box idea?Patty
