You know, with everything that happened last week in Connecticut, it’s a small comfort to see people taking a moment to do kind things for others. Whether it’s the #26acts people are committing to make, or just pausing – for a moment – to be more considerate, it’s comforting to know that people are still inherently kind.
I’m not sure if the writers at How I Met Your Mother are prophetic, or just lucky, but this week’s How I Met Your Mother was as much about being selfless as it was about (finally) seeing how Robin and Barney ended up together.
In their own way, each of the How I Met Your Mother characters did something selfless for one another. Barney burned his playbook and created an elaborate and unforgettable proposal for Robin. Patrice, played along to see her friend (whos not always so kind) end up with the guy she’s meant to marry . Marshall and Lily gave up their independence to kiss their sweet baby good night.
And Ted – on the biggest night of his life – helped the woman he loves to find her happy ending.
So, I ask you, in light of what happened last week – what selfless or special act were you inspired to do?
