Be Kind

When we were filming at The Beverly Hills Hotel, we were grabbing our vendor dinner up in a random room when the sweetest guy who worked there came in asking, "Are you Lucy Grace's Mom!?" I was a little caught off guard and answered "...Yes?" He gave me a big hug and said "I just had to come find you and give you a hug, that Lucy Grace smiled at me and made me so happy..." and he went on and on about her! I mean, I think she's pretty special because she's my daughter, but for a complete stranger to go out of his way to come say those kind things about her made me almost cry! The fact that he simply bumped into my Mom and Lucy in the lobby, then made it his mission to find me and thank me for my child's smile was unbelievable. He was so genuine and getting emotional telling me about her. It goes to show that kindness, even just a simple little smile, goes a long way. I'm sure days will pass and he might forget Lucy's kindness to him, but I'll never forget that man's kindness to me.

May we all remember to be a little kinder today.

  1. I love this. Sometimes I have strangers make the nicest comment. Just the other day someone stopped me at the gym to admire my old gym shoes and genuinely ask me where I got them from. We ended talking for awhile just about shoes and it completely made my day.


  2. This is the sweetest!! Your little Lucy must have something special about her for a complete stranger to be effected like that! She is absolutely beautiful!


  3. kindness from strangers is simply the best! there's something about receiving good vibes from randoms that really makes my day :)
