Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without means.
Today is World Kindness Day, did you know that? I didn't until the lovely Se'Lah wrote about it. She and Anyes are graciously organizing a day filled with random acts of kindness by bloggers around the world. All acts of kindness are welcome and it's not too late for you to participate-- Just be especially kind today and reach out to others more than you usually do in celebration.
What act of kindness do I have planned for today? Grocery shopping.
This afternoon is Senior Citizen shopping day at my local supermarket-- The Senior's van from our area pulls up to the front door around 3:15pm and very slowly unloads a few dozen folks using walkers and canes to do their weekly marketing. I usually avoid grocery shopping at this time, but today I'm going to be available to reach top shelves, push carts, help with checkout, carry bags and assist shoppers back onto their van.
Although I usually rush through grocery shopping-- a chore I do not enjoy, I know today will be different and I'll be smiling the entire time.
How about you-- Do you have a random act of kindness up your sleeve for today?
