The New York Times has a section called Modern Love which the Amazon Studios series is based on. There was an article I recently read that made me smile. The writer discussed the break up of her long time marriage pre COVID and meeting a guy who lived in her building through his note. He left witty notes for his neighbors and one of them was about an abandoned sock looking for its mate.
The article touched me because it was about finding hope and happiness in a sea of disappointment and frustration. I know what it feels like being in a bad marriage not being understood or appreciated no matter what one does to make the other person happy. The wandering sock neighbor had his own ups and downs which the author was unaware of at the time of finding his note. The note gave her a spark of joy when she needed it. The story did have a happy ending which always works for me.
The article’s intent I think was two fold: no matter how miserable you might feel there is always someone in a worse position and random acts of humor and care go a long way.
Do you have a random act of kindness bestowed on you or you have done for someone else?
Stay safe stay well ❤️❤️
