So, I have already done two blogs this month which is what I normally do. But I experienced a fantastic example of Christmas kindness that I had to share with you. This last weekend, my family and I spent the night downtown like we do every year. Sunday morning, we went out to breakfast and I still had to do some Christmas shopping. So my grandma took me and my little sister to Pike Place Market. I had some money to spend on other people and also some money to spend on myself. We were looking around at all the different stands. I saw a woman selling bracelets with certain sayings or words engraved in them. I saw one that caught my eye. It was silver and it said BALANCE, HEALING, FAITH my grandma and I started talking about how it would be perfect for me to wear for surgery and stuff like that. â€œHow much is this one?â€ I asked, gesturing to the silver bracelet. â€œThat one is $45,â€ the lady answered kindly. â€œBut the copper and the gold ones are only $39 and they have the same engraving on them!â€ She then pulled out the same gold and copper bracelets and asked me which ones I liked. I pointed to the copper one and she put it on my wrist and fitted it. â€œI really like this one,â€ I said smiling. She paused for a moment and said â€œIâ€™ll take $30 for it.â€ â€œReally?â€ I asked, bewildered. She nodded. I only had twenty dollar bills. So I took two of them out and handed them two her. She held the twenty dollar bills in her hand and stared at them. As if she was pondering something. â€œDo you know what?â€ she asked, still staring at the bills in her hands. â€œIâ€™m only going to charge you $20 for it. And donâ€™t worry about tax. Merry Christmas!â€ She handed one of the bills back to me. I froze. I didnâ€™t know how to react. I thanked her continuously and wished her a Merry Christmas. This was such an amazing random act of kindness that I just had to share it with you. Please comment down below if you have experienced or done a random act of kindness because I would love to hear it!! I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!! Happy Holidays!! Cass]]>
