Beary Nice; Random Act of Kindness

Sometimes I literally don’t know what to talk about in my blog posts, besides just showing my outfits. I will seriously strain to come up with something to write!!! And then I just give up, waiting it out for some time until something stirs in my noggin.

Photos of coffees I drink are always a good idea. 😉

Hot mocha! Mmmm. From ‘The Mug’ coffee shop in Fresno

Sometimes at night as I try to go to sleep, I’ll find myself staring blankly at the ceiling with not a darn thing to think about! Does that ever happen to you?

When I think hard enough, a few things come out from the creases of my brain. But they’re always random, like what actually happened to the lost Roanoke Colony? Who wrote CROATOAN on the gate post? And is the Roanoke Colony technically the lost sock in the washing machine of life?

Then, finally, something non-historical comes to mind. Like remembering a random act of kindness that happened to me one time a couple years ago…

A few years ago, I was standing in line at a Starbucks in town where I live. It seemed like another trip to Starbucks, at that point! There was a police officer ordering ahead of me. As I decided on whether I wanted an iced or a hot mocha, much to my surprise, the officer waved me towards the counter and said for me to order, that he’d pay for it.

Sounds like a simple act of kindness, right? Well, I still remember it to this day! To me, it was a monumental gesture I’ve never forgotten. I’ve always felt insignificant, so for that moment I felt cool enough for a stranger to buy me a coffee (and a police officer, at that!!!!!!!!!)

So my point of sharing this story, is to emphasize that random acts of kindness can go a long way; it’s still a memory I think of at times! (Also, I’m glad I thought of something to write about in this blog post. 😉 ) So the next time you think about doing something nice for someone, do it, because I guarantee they’ll remember it for years to come. For some of us, it’ll mean the world. 💞

See ya next time!!! 🐻💕🐼

  1. First of all, I always enjoy reading your posts, no matter what they’re about. Secondly, as a kid, I always thought that the Roanoke story was compellingly creepy too. But I haven’t though about it in years. So thanks for the delightful and very seasonal — the spirits are among us! — reminder: “And is the Roanoke Colony technically the lost sock in the washing machine of life?” That line is hilarious and genius!!! Finally, what a beary nice random act of kindness indeed! That police officer could tell that you were someone special — undeniably cool enough for free coffee and so much more. The last pic of you in all your bear flair — umbrella included! — is the perfect punctuation for this post. 🙂

  2. Well, that’s a good idea — posting about your daily cups of coffee, seeing that you like mocha.

    On a side note, reading your story about the cop that paid for your coffee is a breather! Nowadays, most stories about law enforcement focus on the negative, but none of the positive.

    (Thank you for following The Monching’s Guide, by the way! Couldn’t comment on your About page, so I’m just leaving it here.) 🙂

  3. You definitely know how to rock different kinds of fashion and make them work. It’s what makes you unique and I think that’s awesome.

    But all that reminds me of the time that someone stole my dad’s flag and so he made a police report. The officer came back about 20 minutes later with a new flag. Said that he and a few of the other officers chipped in for a new one. That totally made his day and to this day still talks about it.
