One of my new favorite blogs is one named Secret Agent L. The site is run by a lovely woman named Laura Miller. She started this project in July of 2009. Urged by a friend to perform a random act of kindness (RAK) she put a single hydrangea on a strangers windshield with a business card with her website/blog address on it. Since then she has performed numerous missions. She's also gotten others involved. She calls them "Affiliated Agents". I'm proud to be a new AA. I completed my first mission last month and had so much fun that I thought I'd share the details with you:
Date: Tuesday, August 31, 2010
Location: Target, Abington, MA
Time: 4:45 P.M.
Being an Aunt to nine children and a nanny to many others I wanted to come up with something child related for my mission. As I was using a public restroom one day it hit me! I decided to leave a little something for a mom (or female caregiver) at the restroom changing table. I chose Target because it is one of my favorite stores and one that I always seem to be at. I thought that someone taking care of a child in diapers would appreciate some coupons for diapers and wipes. I also included a $5 Target gift card. Having a child in diapers can be expensive and hopefully this will ease the burden, somewhat, of paying for them.
I snuck into the ladies room and I was lucky enough to be alone. I was very nervous because the changing table is right next to the restroom door. After I left my package I put the changing table back in the upright position. I can't wait for someone to find it!!
As I was leaving I couldn't help but smile. It's such a good feeling!
