Happy Monday! Today, we're continuing our 365 Acts of Kindness today, encouraging everyone to do one nice thing for someone else every day, for the next year. It doesn't have to be random- you can certainly be kind to someone you know, or a complete stranger. The idea is to pass love around- help someone else out, and inspire them to do the same. Sometimes, we have to change to be the change we want to see in this world.
Every Monday, we're posting a weekly roundup of Acts of Kindness, where you can share how you've helped others, or how others have blessed you by their acts.
Our Acts of Kindness from Last Week...
A few weeks ago I was sitting at the airport in Dallas, waiting on a plane to see my Father who was in the hospital. Seated next to me was a Father and teenaged daughter. The Father got up to use the restroom moments before boarding, and the daughter asked if he would bring back a pack of gum for the plane ride.
He agreed, but returned later empty handed, exclaiming he would not pay $3.00 for a pack of gum. Knowing I had plenty of gum, I reached into my bag, pulled out a few pieces for myself, and handed her the pack. She looked surprised, took a piece and began to hand it back. I told her to keep it, I had all I needed. She and her Father thanked me. As I was getting up to board I overheard him say, "We must pay this forward." That brought a huge smile to my face! -Britt
This is Week 28 of this special Bloggers & Readers Challenge, and I am so eager to read everyone's comments on how they were able to offer kindness, or how they received kindness from someone else last week.
Be sure to leave us your comment, and keep spreading the love around! You never know- your comment might be featured in next week's post, or we might randomly show kindness to one our our readers!!
