Two Little Hearts - Both For Sharing
--by walkingraven, posted Nov 2, 2010
I found a website that sells tiny pewter hearts which are not too expensive, so, I bought a batch and I keep a couple in my pocket most of the time.
Whenever I find the opportunity, when I am out in stores, at a yard sale or at work or anywhere really, I will ask the person I am speaking with to give me their hand. I put two of those little hearts in the palm of their hand saying, "Keep one and pass the other one on."
The responses I get are amazing! If I had won the Lottery there would not be bigger smiles or more excitement. Everyone immediately wants to tell me who is getting the other heart; someone with cancer, their child who was grumpy this morning, and so on.
A little sharing really makes people happy!
P.S. In my other pocket I carry dog biscuits so even their canine friends can be happy!
At work, we have a program with cards to recognize someone who does exceptional work. I decided to create a version for my personal life. I created some business cards that say "you are awesome" with a link to my blog entry around that idea.
I hand them out to people who make my day, who are exceptional at what they do, who are doing their best to make the world a better place.
Thanks for the inspiration. You've created a wonderful ripple effect.
