Random Acts Of Kindness

Uploaded .

#RPM Challenge 2013#

I was standing behind an elderly couple in the grocery store checkout line last week.

The cashier told them that someone had donated $100 toward their groceries. $100 had already been paid toward their $121 grocery bill . . . anonymously.

It happened right in front of me
With grace delivered flawlessly
I suspect it may be true
Who gave them this, they never knew

I was just a step away
Confused at first, a slight delay
A moment passed, then realized
They received a nice surprise

Random acts of kindness, a special thing to see
Makes me think a little more bout how I’d like to be
These random acts of kindness, an inspiring thing
I don’t think I’ll soon forget the joy it seemed to bring

I walked away, we never spoke
But something deep inside me woke
I felt as happy as can be
As if it were for me

It seemed to open up my eyes
Suddenly I realized
It’s more about the journey than
The place where we all hope to end

Very tasty intro. You're getting some fab guitar sounds. Love the "Makes me think a little more bout how I’d like to be" line. And that solo is simply spot on - simple is best :)
