A Random Act of Kindness...........

We all do our best to raise our children the
Best we know how and then hope for the
Best....
We try to teach them to be responsible adults with
good values and a kind heart....

Daughter called last night after getting a
Thank You note in the mail from a stranger....
It seems she sold a sweater on E-Bay to a women in
California....
Soon after she heard from the women saying she never got the
package and in typical fashion these days the
women thought daughter took her money and
never sent the item...
Daughter has been selling on E-Bay for years
and has a satisfaction rating of 100%...

Daughter had the tracking number from the post office
but she went ahead and refunded the money to
the lady and then put in a claim with the P.O.

Enter the Thank you note...
From another women in California...
It seems the package was mis-delivered
by the post office....Oh what a shock I can't believe
the Post Office delivered a package to a wrong address....

The note said that the recipient had received a lovely
purple St. John knit sweater from daughter's address...
She wanted to know who she could thank for this
unexpected gift...
 Daughter looked up her name and address online to discover
The women is 93 years old...

The original purchaser was notified that the package went to
another address in error....
Last night the women's husband went to pick up the
sweater from the other lady....
They promptly re-paid daughter using Pay-Pal....

Feeling bad that the 93 year old women was so kind as to
write a letter thanking the Un-known Sender
and not wanting her to be disappointed
That this lovely "Gift" from a stranger was taken away...
Daughter had flowers delivered to her today....

She thought it would make her day....
I was so proud....
Thanks Daughter for having Good Values
and a Kind Heart....
