A few weeks ago, at Kirribilli markets, a customer turned to me, and out of the blue said "you'll find that sometimes it is the complete strangers and their acts of kindness that will blow you away.".
So true. Over the last few months, I have been bowled over by the beautiful actions of some complete and relative strangers.
Sunday at Bondi markets, there was a perfect example of that. A true gentleman, stopped by the stall. A very interesting man and I was so glad to meet him. Half an hour later, he returned, with 2 beautiful bunches of flowers. One for the woman of his dreams, at home. The other for me, an incredibly kind gesture that really brought a smile to my face and made my day. That was all he wanted. And off he went, just like that.
