This one struck me as odd for some reason.
This one reminds me of pudding.
Early this morning I found out that I had made someone's day with a song. Twelve hours later, I made someone else's day because I took the time to listen and not judge, and I made her smile. She talked for two hours about everything running the gamut from siblings, children, money, fraud, computer hacking, God, the Bible, church, alcoholics, and much, much more... A substantial, if not strange conversation to say the least, with a rather eccentric woman. We laughed at some things, agreed on some others, and on occasion she went off course, but I was fine with that. She said that I was refreshing to talk to, that she could tell I had a good heart. I thanked her and we continued talking. At some point, she handed me a twenty dollar bill and said "this is for you". She would not accept it back. We talked for another half hour and she still wouldn't allow me to return it, even as the conversation came to a close and we were standing on the front porch saying farewell.
So I made three people happy today just being me. And... the twenty dollars? That was an unexpected act of kindness from a complete stranger.
