Practicing Random Acts of Kindness
This past week was a rough week, well when you think about it... it's been a rough month. Some of my friends are still out of work, some have no place to live in a couple of weeks (FaceBook friends) because they don't know where there next check is coming from, my community has sent me three letters in the last weeks asking for money for one cause or another in time for Thanksgiving, I've had so much stress in my life that my body is shutting down and just refusing to go on without more sleep, I've been running my husband hard doing projects around the house that I want done before it starts raining (yes, God, I do believe you will send us some rain that we need here in Southern California!).
Just this week there was a fatal shooting at the LAX. More children were reported hurt by family members, more children were doing horrible things to other people, our society is crying out that it's not going to take it anymore. We need love, peace, the rich reaching out to the poor .... everyday and not just at Thanksgiving. And not just to "those people" (stated by an unnamed celebrity) referring to the homeless and how he dishes out Thanksgiving meals to "those people."
I have four active blogs and this one and one other seems to get the least of my attention and so that is going to change this month and they are going to see the most!
I'm directing my fan group on FB to read this blog and the other one that is my dog's blog to read more and interact by commenting. We're all working towards a kinder society beginning with ourself!
I ask you to do one thing... SMILE. It may be the hardest thing for you to do right now if you're like me. But do it! And make it matter. Smile at someone. It doesn't cost anything and is a random act of kindness!
