World Kindness Week........
did you know?
Pretty wonderful week I think..........
I have just learned of a wonderful,
uplifting, inspirational site........
they have a list of
"random acts of kindness"
and I thought I would share them with you this week........
here are the first 12:
You Can Make Your Own Life Better by Doing One or Two ofThese Simple Acts of Kindness Every Week:

1. Write a note of appreciation to your mail and newspaper carriers.
2. Compliment a stranger, with sincerity and a smile.
3. If you know someone in financial difficulty, anonymously mail them $5, $10 or $20.
4. Look for anything that can be put away, fixed or picked up. ...(put shopping carts away, pick up some trash, fix something that's fallen over ...etc.)
5. Give a lottery ticket to a stranger.
6. Volunteer your time at a charitable organization.
7. Write a note to management about an individual who has treated you nicely while doing their job. ...(a waiter or waitress, grocery clerk, sales person, mechanic ...etc)
8. Buy something for a stranger from their Amazon.com Wishlist.
9. Cut an article out of the newspaper that would interest a friend and mail it to them.
10. Leave 'Have a Nice Day' stickers for a receptionist or front desk.
11. Clean up gravestones at a local cemetery.
12. When you go out to dinner, order a dessert to go and give it to a neighbor.
And....... a couple of my own:
1. Buy a candy cane and give it to a "bell ringer" stationed outside the stores this time of year.......
2. Tuck a $5 bill into the pocket of a pair of pants in your clothing donation bag.....
