They left me a sweet card that has a really uplifting quote on it. It helped lift the burdens that were weighing me down, and gave me a greater desire to do something nice for someone else in return.

Laminated card about prayer. Reminded me that I need to go to Him more often.

I went to go get a drink from the water fountain on the fourth floor of the Harold B Lee Library on campus at BYU. On top of the water founatin was a laminated card with a blue sticky note that said, "For you! Remember, you're awesome and you'll rock those finals! :)" The laminated card it was attached to had a quote that said: "Fear and faith cannot coexist in our hearts at the same time. -Neil L. Andersen." It was awesome! Definitely made me smile. This is the second random act of kindness that has happened to me in the last week and it really does make a difference. It reminds you that people are aware and concious of you and finals aren't going to kill you.

I have a paper due soon that has added a significant amount of stress to my life. When I saw a magnet with the perfect quote about stress, I felt really loved. It felt like a gift from God, telling me to keep moving forward.

I randomly found a chocolate egg with a note- it honestly made my day :) It has made me feel lonely being away from home and for some reason finding a random chocolate bar was a magical reminder I am not alone.

We talked about being the change we want to see in the world, and we acted on it!
