A Simple Act of Kindness

It was just another pee break , in another unfamiliar town (Casper, Wyoming). We were making our usual pass by the snacks and sodas when a not so clean looking man that I would have otherwise probably steered clear of, came up to Janie handing her two one dollar bills and smiled the most genuine smile. “You have a very merry Christmas little one” was all he said.
Even now, as we have left that town to move on to the next one on our journey, I am amazed at such an unexpected moment of kindness….Janie was beaming as we left the store and she yelled back to the man “Merry Christmas!” I hope she will remember that moment when a stranger brightened her day for absolutely no reason at all…
