We took a family day trip today to this place and had a perfect day at the zoo. The weather couldn't have been better either! When we got there we stood in line for quite a while and complained that we had gotten in the wrong line because it was taking so long to move. As we were finally about to get to the cashier, the person in front of us turned around and asked us if we wanted a pass to get one of our tickets free. THANK YOU!!! He saved us almost $20.00. Guess we didn't get in the wrong line after all. This random act of kindness made me think about how ridiculous it was to be complaining about waiting in line a couple extra minutes. Who cares in the big scheme of things? We were there as a family, with our two beautiful kids on a perfect summer day. It doesn't matter, enjoy the moment, even if it is waiting in line. There are millions of people out there who don't have the opportunity to have these moments.
One random act of kindness led me to a great deal of reflection today, imagine what would happen if we did the same for others....try it, I know I am going to!
