#33 Random Act of Kindness

Scatter Kindness

#33 Random Act of Kindness – 100 day challenge.

All Acts of Kindness are written in the participants own words and the only purpose of this challenge was to scatter kindness.

The act of kindness that I’d like to tell you about is something that may not necessarily be random, since we’ve intended to eventually do it. However, it is something that makes us and others feel blessed.

About 9 months ago, we bought some chicks, with the intent of ultimately getting eggs from these chicks. Throughout the spring and summer, I spent some evenings building a movable coop (chicken tractor) for them, which was a success. It was also a great accomplishment for me, as I had never built anything functional before.

This setup allows us to get organic eggs from pastured chickens, which is something we believe in a great deal. As the summer ended, we began to get some eggs out of one or two of the chickens. But, that was a very low count for the 8 that we have. Time passed and they matured and we are finally getting eggs from all 8 of them. We may not get 8 per day. But, we are getting more than we are able to use.

Given this, we have now reached the point we had hoped for, where we are able to give eggs away to friends and family. While we’ve given some away to local families, one of the most rewarding opportunities we’ve had was giving some away to friends of ours who also greatly value the eggs from organic pastured chickens.

In the past, we have had the chance to exchange favors/gifts. But, nothing compared to their reaction when we handed them the eggs. Apparently, in our conversations, they didn’t yet know that we have chickens. So, it was an incredible surprise to them to hear where the eggs had come from.

So, yeah. Sorry, it wasn’t exactly random. But, it was definitely a rewarding experience.

Have a Flan-tastic Day and Scatter some Kindness,

Random me:  So in this case the chickens came first before the eggs (my kind of humor).
