I know three Nicoles, none of them have rained down on me like this 4th one which just blew into my life. Overnighting on the far east side of the eastside, and needing to walk 45 minutes west, I found myself ill-prepared for the Noah’s-ark-like conditions which bore down on me the first step out of the lobby. With borrowed umbrella, I rounded the corner of the building unaware of the gust of wind which rendered it useless and leaving it to resemble something out of an Edward Scissorhands movie.
Today we had another Kindness Bus first; while rounding a corner near The Natural History Museum, a mom and her very young daughter stood and blew dozens of kisses to the bus, showering it lots of love. What a very touching moment to see a mom teaching her child the importance of kindness as a core value. Rochia, a very beautiful grandmother was emotional while talking with me about the good that could come to this world through kindness. Her grandchild attends a local school named Holy Name. She is going to talk to the school principal about creating a Kindness Certificate for every student. Rochia made my day. The Kindness Bus Tour continues to pick up steam.
