When my family and I sat down for lunch at Boyne Mountain Ski Resort this weekend, we saw this bright aqua envelope on our table. My 9 year old son, Judge, picked it up and opened it. You can only imagine his surprise when he discovered $3 (a fortune!) plus an invitation to buy some hot cocoa. In an instant, you put a smile on all of our faces.
Throughout the day, we kept looking at skiers wondering if they were “the stranger” and then we had a great conversation over what inspired you to do something so kind. We then brainstormed ways that we could surprise other kids. We even made a commitment that we, too, were going to do something unexpected and kind for someone else.
While we may never end up meeting you, I just wanted to say “thank you” for inspiring such a wonderful dialogue between my son and I. We promise to pay your random act of kindness forward in many positive and unexpected ways.
You, dear stranger, remind me of the impact one person can make in this world. You rock.
