Day 44

What kind act have you done today? Please share it with me. Together we can make a nicer world.

My 365 day commitment—a small act of kindness today:
I had my vehicle tested for emissions today so I could renew my tags. The  young man at the garage was very helpful and filled out the necessary papers for me. He did it with kindness, not a motive.

It is rare these days to find personnel who give you their undivided attention, who are respectful of your business, cheerful and do all they can to help you. I gave him a generous tip to show my appreciation.

Day 43

What kind act have you done today? Please share it with me. Together we can make a nicer world.

My small act of kindness today:
My uncle went to the hospital after a fall. He is showing improvement and his doctor transferred him to a rehabilitation center today. Since I was not able to visit, I called him to let him know I was thinking of him and hoping for his speedy recovery. We reminisced about some fun times our families have had together.

Day 41

My small act of kindness today:
Today we are traveling 200 miles to see my husband’s niece in a community theatre production of the musical Honk! JR. She plays a cat and has her very first solo performance. Her mother said that she is thrilled we are coming.

Day 40

My small act of kindness today:
My husband’s 13-year-old niece landed a leading role in a community theatre production of Honk! JR. She lives 200 miles from us, and many more miles from the rest of her extended family. We decided to drive to see her perform tomorrow and show support for her acting début.

Today I bought her red roses for after the play.

Day 39

My small act of kindness today:
I helped my niece with a new website using iWeb last week. Today I helped her with a few design problems: fonts that altered her display, correcting the “play slideshow” previews and proofreading her copy.

Day 38

My small act of kindness today:
I received an email from my cousin today that my uncle went into the hospital with a serious condition at age 94. I called my mother and two sisters to let them know and sent text messages to my three brothers. All of them live near the hospital. My cousin is grateful for the support.

Day 37

This has been a very busy day and hard to think of others. I have made a reserve list of “kind acts” and today I used one of them.

My small act of kindness today:
My husband and I own a small business. Recently we received a referral from a customer who purchased from us eight years ago. I wrote a thank-you letter to let him know how much we appreciate the business.

Day 36

I am very thankful to live in a free country.

My small act of kindness today:
Today I donated money for our troops. When I went into a store to buy ice, there was a collection jar on the counter with a note: “a pack of handiwipes is like a shower to a soldier.” Thank-you to all of our military both present and past for preserving our freedom.

Day 35 – week 5 complete

Wow, this really makes me think about being nice – a lot. No time for bad thoughts.

My small act of kindness today:
There’s a heat wave where my mother lives. I wanted to check up on her but I couldn’t let her know that. She’s too proud. So I called under the pretext of discussing a book she loaned me.

It’s 1786. The protagonist, a determined young woman, joins a wagon train headed west—without a man to protect her. Imagine. My 94-year-old mother often tells me, “I could have traveled west on a wagon train.” The book is Freedom’s Promise by Dianna Crawford.
