Brooke Fraser checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@brookefraser) on Saturday (July 11), talking about being on the receiving end of a random act of kindness, and encouraging others to make a similar gesture for others. The New Zealand singer songwriter tells readers:
A few nights ago we were out to dinner with some friends at the end of a long day. There were seven of us at our table, and when we went to settle the bill at the end, the server pointed to the table next to ours (now empty) and said “the guy sitting there paid your bill”.
We didn’t know this guy and he was long gone by the time we discovered his incredible gesture… we were all completely stunned and so grateful.
Got me thinking about generosity… how startling it is… how awesome it is when we step out of our self-involvedness and do something for someone else, for no other reason than because we can.
