mommywizdom is our most gracious hostess this week and she said....
Your job this week is to go out and perform a random act of kindness. Now, before you freak out, please read on. This is actually really easy!! This act may be for someone you know or for a perfect stranger. It can be big or small, it's all up to you. Obviously, it should be something within your means. Blog about what you did or maybe about an act of kindness that was bestowed upon you.
I had always heard that to perform a random act of kindness, you should keep it to yourself. keep it between you and God . But I guess as long as the person who received the kindness doesn't know it was you, it will be OK to talk about it. To be nice to someone is the easiest thing to do, just a simple hello or open a door or just a smile. You never know how this simple act of kindness will affect a person. Maybe this person lives by themselves, or has no more living family members to connect with and are lonely. You may be the only person they see at any particular time . A simple hello could brighten their day. One way of doing a Random act of Kindness is to find an "angel tree" pick a person's wish card and make their wish come true. That is what my Hubby and I did just last week. Our Angel tree is located at the health club we belong to. All the people on it are from a local nursing home and rehab center. The one card caught my eye because the name on it said Gerald F. Well, that is my hubby's name too, it was like calling out to us! Gerald wanted some socks, a shirt and a baseball cap. All we had to do was purchase these things , gift wrap them and get it back to the health club, someone from the nursing home would pick the gifts up. It would be nice to witness Gerald opening his gift, but I know in my heart he will be pleased. We try to do the angel tree every year along with a monetary donation to our local homeless shelter. Giving is the greatest "Gift" we can give to ourselves! We are so blessed to be able to help others. Not only at christmas but the whole year through.
