So right now money is tight and everything that breaks is just beyond my finances to replace. This week I lost my earbuds, water bottle and watch band. Thankfully someone I met over the internet bestowed an amazing random act of kindness on me in the form of a gift card for a major retailer. Where I was able to acquire a new watch band and a towel for my Circuit Weight Training class. The amazing part of this providence is that this amazing woman became my friend purely from who she perceives me to be from our interactions on Facebook via mutual friends and their assorted Facebook discussion groups. For those who deride Facebook, this group of people has shown me and many others in the group amazing acts of kindness and caring. Like it or not social networking is a here to stay and while there are negative aspects the positives outweigh them.
