“Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.”
James M. Barrie
What have you done to make the world a kinder place this month?
I kind of have a hard time thinking of things sometimes.
Maybe it’s the littlest things like keeping my cool when my children are misbehaving. Or letting a car pull in front of you or waving pedestrians by while you wait.
It doesn’t have to involve planning or work.
I suggested a potluck dinner with neighbors who didn’t travel over Memorial Day weekend and made a few calls. We all enjoyed a very pleasant evening together.
I gave a friend a hug.
When I cook something that freezes well I triple the batch. One for us later but one (packed in disposable containers) always goes to someone else who could use it.
Beth Wheeler is doing a little project called “Joy Jam”.
She’s made hearts to pass out with encouraging words on them.
She’ll give a handful to someone and ask them to keep one and pass out others.
