Kindness Pass it On

Kindness is one of the most beloved gifts.

It only takes a minute to make someone’s day, it only takes a minute to lend a helping hand.A smile takes less muscles than a frown. So many times we pass one another without so much as a hello. Your smile may be the one bright spot in a person’s day.

It is easy to have a bad day and a equally bad attitude to go with it. I have had plenty myself. There are certain circumstances that are beyond our control yes, but I think our attitude has a lot to do with the outcome. We can become bitter and angry or we can choose to have an attitude of gratitude. I have so much to be thankful for. 

I have good neighbors in a good neighborhood, the love and support of family and friends, a good job with nice co-workers. Even when circumstances seem hopeless, there are blessings all around us. So many hate winter, it is only a season that last a few months. I know many are being hammered by severe winter weather, but it will be spring soon.

God has walked me through some of the darkest days of my life. My son died in 2007 from a tragic car accident. There are no words to describe the depth of grief I felt that day. I could have become bitter and angry at God, but I chose instead to trust Him. The pain eases as time passes, but I am grateful everyday for the wonderful memories I have of the fine young man Levi had become. Life is not easy, so many are struggling. I love what the banner says that everyone can afford the gift of kindness. Even if you shovel a neighbors driveway for them, maybe they did not have time before leaving and is grateful.I heard on the news couple weeks ago Starbuck’s patrons were paying forward free coffee. How sweet. It only takes a minute. Have a great new year.
