Kindness Continues With Us

Kindness continues with us!

Congratulations for meeting our goal of 300 acts of kindness. If 10 people did 1 kind deed each day, then after 30 days, 300 acts of kindness would change the world. We filled Facebook and the internet with kindness. So, kindness continues with us.

Random Kindness

I want to share how my family was affected by kindness over the last month.  First, my husband had the opportunity to assist an elderly woman by putting air in her tires at a gas station. She was so relieved to find someone who helped her. I watched two people keep on driving past her but we stopped to help. Next, my daughter showed intentional kindness to others. (She didn’t even know about the challenge.)

 

Intentional Kindness

My youngest daughter gave birth to her first child a few days ago. You would think that she would only be focused on herself and her baby. Much to my surprise, she had presents for all of the grandparents since we were there on Grandparent’s Day. I was humbled and amazed. Not only did she think about us, but she also had candy bars for the nurses. When the nurses made those late night visits, their faces lit up with joy to think that someone bestowed kindness upon them. Even a candy bar can bring cheer to someones day.

 You can keep this list and add to it daily. The purpose of the list was to assist us in being purposeful about kindness.
