Have you ever walked into Chick-Fil-A in a bad mood and left there feeling a lot happier? I can’t help but smile every time I am in there because their workers are so NICE! They genuinely want to serve you and make sure your experience with them is great.
Lately, I have been thinking a lot about kindness.
With a new school year starting, Chris and I always preach to the girls to be kinder than necessary because you never know what someone is going through.
The other day I watched a video on FB about a little boy that went through his whole day and no one really acknowledged him.
Then they showed that same boy where the bus driver immediately talked to him that morning and what a difference it made in that boy’s day!
All of these things got me thinking about kindness and how being kind cost nothing.
As a teacher, I want all of my students to know that I care about them and they can come to me for anything. I want each kid to feel noticed and appreciated.
As a mom, I want to raise strong girls that are kind to everyone they meet. Yet, at the same time I don’t want their kindness interpreted for weakness if that makes sense?!?
I blog a lot about being kind to others and staying positive no matter what life throws at you.
I want to challenge all of you to make a point to reach out to someone today that might need a little encouragement.
We all just want to feel accepted and loved, whether we are a middle school student at a new school or a 35 year old mom of two.
In this very evil world with so much going wrong, it is so easy to do just a little right.
Be Kind. Have Fun. Work Hard. <Should be our daily motto.>
