Such a Sweet Gift – An Umbrella in the Rain From a Stranger

Dear man in the media services van who saw me clutching my laptop while running through the rain,

It was absolutely, stunningly, ridiculously kind of you when you thrust your umbrella through the open window at the stoplight and insisted that I take it. You swore you had plenty more, but the gentle wear and care on the handle and peak tell me that this was a well loved, well taken care of umbrella for many years.

I thanked you not nearly enough before you drove off at the change of the light. I will be keeping this umbrella as a cherished reminder of random acts of human kindness, and I promise to pay it forward at the first opportunity.
