Who doesn't like a nice surprise?!
Recently it made our day to see that someone had drawn hearts on the sidewalk in front of each neighbor's home. Each heart had a different design and you could tell the person who drew the hearts put some thought into each design. Not only were people leaving their houses surprised by this gift, but people walking down the street stopped to admire the designs, introduced one another, and made friends.
An act of kindness can be as simple as pulling the weeds from your neighbor's sidewalk.
