We Have A Winner!

Congratulations, Becky! My son (the recipient of the RAOK that started this whole thing) picked your name out of a hat (actually, a mixing bowl). Send me an email (blogginboutbooks[AT]gmail[DOT]com) with your mailing address, and I'll get it out ASAP.

Thanks to all who entered this giveaway. Reading all of your comments made me smile. I have never liked the term "Random Acts of Kindness" because I don't believe kindness should be random. Hopefully, it's just a given that you open the door for the mom struggling to push her stroller through; or retrieve an item for a senior citizen who can't quite reach it; or resist the impulse to park in a busy parking lot's handicapped spaces. Sometimes, however, someone will do something so unexpected that it looks random. But, I don't think it is. I truly believe the world is filled with thoughtful, generous people performing countless acts of kindness just because it's the right thing to do. Obviously, they make a difference in our lives! Thanks again for sharing your stories - they make me want to be a kinder, more giving person.
