Witnessing Kindness during the Holidays
--by AnnC, posted Dec 24, 2016
Yesterday morning I was feeling stressed because I needed to go shopping for some of the organizations I volunteer with. I really don't like big crowds and tend to stay away from large department stores and shopping malls at Christmas time. However, I was determined to make the best of it and have a good day. So I decided to play a game with myself.
I would actively look for and count the number of times and ways I saw people being kind. With this mindset, I witnessed so many, many acts of kindness: Drivers letting other cars into traffic; people taking shopping carts back inside; customers waiting patiently in a long line at the cash register; kind words spoken to cashier who was doing her best help people and greet everyone with a big smile; kind words spoken to children, and their parents; donations being made to the Salvation Army bell ringers; gifts being bought for the giving tree, etc, etc.
There truly is kindness everywhere, if we just open our eyes and our hearts to it!
Thank you everyone for all your kindness.
Is there a way to get a copy of that? It would make a super tshirt for
Kids and adults!
