26 acts of kindness




Walking down to the pond this afternoon was chilly and gray - ice forming, but not thick enough for skating.  After reading about the 26 acts of kindness on Facebook,( which honors the memory of those 26 beautiful children and teachers at Newtown) I spent hours thinking about what I could do in this rural area, and came up with making a basket of presents for the residents at the local low-income nursing home.  And then, just as I was finished, I realized that, in today's world, strangers with presents were not always welcomed with open arms.  

How did we get here, to a place where no one is trusted?  I simply cannot answer that, but if the basket of presents is refused, I know a nurse at the home, who may take them in for me, and give them to those lonely, forgotten people.  If not?  I will place them on the counter at the village store with a sign to take them with the joy of Christmas giving.

Let us never give up loving, and sharing, caring and remembering.

What a lovely sentiment and solution... my acts tend towards the daily random ones, the opportunity to do so never seems to fail to present itself, from helping someone in a crowded parking lot find their car to the simple act of a kind smile...

Dear diary - I do the same, but felt the urge to go a little further. So many people are paying for someone's meals, or groceries. While I can't afford much, making an effort.
