The note on my car

I came out to my car in the parking lot the other day and spotted this note tucked into the edge of my window. I think it was meant for my husband who often drives this car.
"Thank you," it says, "for having the bumper stickers that you do. It means the world to me and, I'm certain, other women."
I thought that was the sweetest thing. It makes me more grateful for Kyle and also grateful that that anonymous person took the time to say how something affected her (I'm assuming it was a her). It's encouraged me to find ways to thank strangers for the ways they make the world a better place. Maybe I can leave a note on someone's windshield or I can stop a manager and let them know what great service we received at such and such a restaurant. I am so inspired as I realize that I often let the little kindnesses in the world around me go unacknowledged and how easy it would be to let that person know they are appreciated!
love, elizabeth

That is such an amazing gesture and I'm sure your husband totally appreciated it right? I too don't want to get kindness go unnoticed... People need encouragement!

That is a nice gesture.

You and Kyle are AMAZING and NICE people. Seriously. I am glad to know you, even if it is just online. I like to surround myself with positive people and you two are definitely that.
