Hope your week has been great.
This week I’ve had 3 different people show me kindness out of the blue.
One of my coworkers brought me my favorite bag of M & M’s. (White Candy Corn)
Then Chris left me a sweet note after our lunch shift in my classroom.
And then the next day, another coworker of mine brought me a Strawberry Lemonade.
What these ladies didn’t know (Chris knew) is that this has been a hard week for me.
My dad’s birthday is coming up soon and I’ve been missing him so much.
Also, we are changing things up with Emily for accommodations with her dyslexia and it’s hard for your child to feel “different.”
And then Liz has had an awful cold and this means AWFUL sugar readings.
Nothing “major” I know, but little things that have just bothered me this week.
However, these acts of kindness turned my whole day around.
How thoughtful of them to think of me enough to get me these things!!?!?
All of this quickly reminded that I needed to be paying it forward more. I get so caught up in my life that I forget sometimes to think of others.
I know I’ve said it before and it’s been said a bunch, but you never know what people are dealing with.
Reach out to others. Get to know others well enough that you can pick up their favorite candy or drink to brighten their day.
Smile. Hold the door open. Give a compliment. Send a nice text. Send a card in the mail.
There are many ways to spread kindness!
Kindness is always cool! It’s a blessing to those that show the kindness and those that receive the kindness.
Be a blessing to someone today. Happy Thursday!
