Play it Forward

Sometimes you get an opportunity to do something that just feels good.  Today was one of those days.  About a month ago my husband and I were at Madison’s farmer’s market and I saw this woman selling flowers.  There was something about her that touched my heart.  I took her picture and decided I would paint her  portrait.

So today we went back to the farmer’s market looking for the flower lady.  We didn’t find her right away, but we did find her.  I don’t know if she speaks much English, but there was a big smile on her face when I handed her a copy of her portrait.  It felt so good, so very good to see her smile.  She said thank you and I walked with a big ole grin on my face.

It feels good to do something kind for the pure joying of doing it.  I highly recommend you give it a try.
