A New List of Kindness Suggestions - January 4, 2019
Readers of my books and my blog postings are all familiar with my message that we can offer acts of kindness daily as we go about our daily lives. We can lift the spirits of those around us; we can show Jesus' love; we can bring joy to others, simply by taking an extra moment to be kind.
When I offer specific actions and ideas on what actions we can take, I get tremendous feedback on the helpfulness of such lists. So, in that spirit, here are some thoughts:
Tweet or Facebook message a genuine compliment to three people right now.
Bring doughnuts (or a healthy treat, like cut-up fruit) to work.
While you’re out, compliment a parent on how well-behaved their child is.
Cook a meal or do a load of laundry for a friend who just had a baby or is going through a difficult time.
If you walk by a car with an expired parking meter, put a quarter in it.
Put your phone away.
Don’t interrupt when someone else is speaking. (Surprisingly few people master this.)
Let someone into your lane. They’re probably in a rush just like you.

9. Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero outside, they closed school? . . . Me neither.
