Simply Caring

Reflecting on the discord and violence in our nation, Kathleen Parker, a columnist for The Washington Post, penned a provoking piece.  In her writing, she proposed that we can impact our world with acts of thoughtfulness.  She writes . . .
We can't un-crazy crazy, but we can each try to stem the madness.  It begins with simply caring:  By looking up from our cellphones and making eye contact; by asking the checkout girl about her day; thanking the garbage collector; doing favors without a scorecard; giving away money because someone needs it more.  Sometimes a small gesture of kindness can change someone's day - or life. (Alaska Dispatch News 06.18.2017)
I like the Ordinary actions that she proposes.  I recall the times when family, friends, and strangers have acted in such ways to me; and I smile.

Make it your goal today to share a small gesture of kindness with this world.
