I opened my back door and there between the door and the screened storm door was a gift, in the package, with a note that read:
That was back when I was a single teacher and coach living on a really tight budget. I had been chosen, along with another coach, a few student athletes, and a Booster Club Representative named Sharon, to represent my school at a conference on sportsmanship. This was really the first time I spent much time around Sharon. She was a leader in the community and a very GrAcioUs and kind lady.
A few days after the conference I came home from work one day to find a surprise at my back door. Sharon had bought me a new FlAtiRoN and dropped it off at my house when I was in school – completely out of the blue and completely to my surprise. She had heard me talk about my broken flatiron and took it upon herself to do something about it.
That was over 10 years ago, but I still remember this KiNd AcT that Sharon did for me. And I ask myself from time to time what I can do for someone else… “Just Because.”
