Ideas to help us make the world a better place!
Little things:
Hold the door open – especially if they are pushing a stroller or have their hands full.
Leave a post-it note on the bathroom stall saying “smile – you ARE beautiful, smart, and creative!”
Give a compliment – a looking in the eyes, specific, compliment.
Put a grocery cart away for a mother with little ones in the car. (did this!)
(I always really hated to leave mine alone even for a second in the car.)
Bigger things:
Babysit for the mother of young children… even if it’s just so she can go take a nap.
Bring your favorite book and read stories to kids at your local elementary school.
Wash someone’s car windows.
Keep a zip-loc bag in your purse with a toothbrush, toothpaste, a few dollars, and a granola bar for the next time you pass a homeless person. (going to do this!)
Stop by the fire department with a plate of cookies and say thank you.
It’s not that hard to make the world a better place!

    Thanks. In honor of my youngest child's 13th birthday (today), I promise to do as many things to make the world he lives in a better place this week. I'd like to think it could get to be a habit. Sharing on fb today as well. Jane's art and posts always brighten my day – she shared this on fb so I'll pass it on.

    I love these ideas, Lyric. I'm definitely going to do the toothbrush in a bag idea — brilliant. When I worked at a hotel, I used to take some of the pastries at the end of the day (they'd get sent to a farm) and leave them where I knew some homeless folks slept. 🙂
