Random Acts of Kindess - Start Today!

I was wandering through a variety of blogs the other day and was inspired by one called 366 Random Acts of Kindness (it's leap year remember), so decided to give it a try.  Most likely I won't come up with something every day, but hopefully posting the ones I do will keep me motivated.

1.  I am going to try and keep it simple.  It doesn't have to be big, I just need to do something nice whether a kind word or gesture.

2.  I don't need recognition.  It counts even if done secretly.

3.  The ultimate goal can be one of many - putting a smile on someone's face, making their life easier or even just something done just for the sheer fun of it.

4.  Money for the most part should not be involved.  This is about really looking around me to figure out how to make the world a nicer place.

Yesterday this blog came to mind as I was curling.  Pretty much the day is done after the game is over.  So all I could think of was the curling rocks.  As I was waiting my turn I sidled quietly over to the lane next to mine and while no one was looking, arranged their rocks in order for them.  I know, not a big deal.  But sometimes we need to think small.


Remember all those little pebbles rolling can turn into a big slide, it just takes the first one starting the process. Wonder if I can come up with something unique today where I'm working from home.  I already cook dinner, etc., so where can that small and unique gesture come from today.
