I was on Facebook this morning and as a fan of Walmart, the following was in my newsfeed (sorry for the large size but I wanted to make sure you could read it:
When was the last time you did a random act of kindness? Big or small, any random act could turn someone’s last ounce of hope into a feeling of joy.
Random acts of kindness can be as small as letting the person behind you at the grocery store go ahead of you because they have 5 items and you have an entire cart full, or something as large as buying groceries and much-needed baby items for the couple that is trying to live their life right for their newborn baby.
With the holiday season coming up, I encourage you to partake in random acts of kindness as much as you can. Teach your kids and whoever else that Thanksgiving and Christmas aren’t just about food, family, and gift giving, it’s about being thankful for what you have and if you can, giving something to those in need.
If you’re able to give a gift of hope and inspiration to someone this season, you’ll not only feel good about yourself, you’ll inspire someone else to follow in your footsteps.
As my favorite comedian Ellen Degeneres says, “Be kind to each other.”
