Random Words of Kindness



I made this little postcard in response to Angela's Triple Dare this week: "I triple-dare you to create a work of art (be it in words, photo, crayon, whatever) and leave it for someone else to find and have (or pass on)."

Earlier this week, a friend emailed me this link: Has anyone told you...

I was moved to tears reading it, though she had no idea how much I needed to hear those words on that particular day. I saw this triple-dare as an opportunity to have the same serendipitous effect on a total stranger in need of encouragement. So I put some thoughts to paper, things I know I need to hear on occasion, and made this postcard with the following message on the back:

if you found this card
(or it found you!)
it’s yours to keep,
until you choose,
to pass it on
to another soul
and let that random
kindness roll…

This morning I left the card conspicuously peeking from beneath an envelope bin on the post office counter. I know there's someone out there in need of encouragment today. Who would have guessed they might find it at the post office?
