I got to do my favorite thing today...find information in courthouses. Perhaps I like courthouses because my dad had an office in one when I was growing up so the smell of linoleum and concrete is familiar. Or maybe it is the smell of legal papers. It was just nice to be back in a courthouse today. And it was a beautiful spring day. Lilacs were starting to bloom and people were just outside reading briefs or eating lunch.
Yesterday we had a change of luck and people actually reached out to help us set up the office properly after 6 weeks of feeling like we were invisible. So today it was my time to get helped personally at the first courthouse I got to. As readers of this blog know, I get lost easily. I looked lost when I was walking over to the courthouse and two women went out of their way to find out where I was going and make sure I got there. Sweet people. Then later I was able to return the favor with a different woman at a different courthouse who was lost and needed help. An all around feel good kind of day.
Is it karma that works or is it just a beautiful spring day that brings out the best in people? I suspect karma is in the eye of the beholder. I am just grateful for it today. My karma box was getting kind of empty after the last 6 weeks.
So when kindness happens to you, pass it on.
