Random Acts of Kindness


It's time again for Random Acts of Kindness!
This is just a little something I do....
My mother renews my subscription to Reader's Digest every year for Christmas. Also, she gets Guideposts magazine herself, and passes them along to me after she reads them.
So, after I read the magazines, I bring them to work and put them in the Family Waiting Room here at the ICU.
It's a very small way to hopefully distract them from whatever is going on with their loved one, and maybe even give them a little hope or inspiration.

So tell me - what's going on with you? What's your latest Random Act of Kindness?

I gave $10 to a man on the street corner.....you can tell he needed it although he wasn't begging for it. He was very appreciative!

That's awesome that you do that. I am sure people love to keep themselves busy with fun things to read.

I gave my sister some extra Christmas cards I had and I sent a friend a book of stamps.

That's so thoughtful of you! My random act of kindness today was not hitting my hubby upside the head with a frying pan when he insulted my cooking...again.

Nice. I haven't been randomly kind. Thank you for the reminder. I need to step it up a notch.
