random kindness

this morning, I was on my way to the school to drop off shane’s science fair poster. he didn’t want to take it with him on the bus this morning (to and from band), so I agreed to drop it off in the office for him. it was probably a very good idea, since it’s been DUMPING rain all morning, and we’re kind of in the middle of a somewhat significant wind storm.

at any rate, as I’m driving down the road – a somewhat major road with a lot of traffic– there’s a stoplight ahead, but it’s green, and I can’t figure out why everyone is moving so slowly. and then I see, standing in the middle of the intersection, a beautiful husky dog. just standing there, looking confused. people are being very careful and driving by slowly, but I just kept thinking, “oh! somebody rescue it!” then I see a woman in a van roll down her window and call to the dog. it wagged it’s tail and came up to her car. she kept calling it as she turned the corner onto the cross street. the dog followed her off the main road. as I drove by, she was out of the car and checking it’s tags.

made me a little teary.

thank goodness for kind strangers. even kindness to a lost dog. completely made my day!
