Random Acts of Kindness this

Love ? I love love love you.

Love ? I love love love you. (Photo credit: @Doug88888)

Its Christmas time. The year is coming to an end. Reflecting, eating, drinking and being merry. There are some of us who have had rough year, maybe even a couple of years and Christmas brings nothing but more sadness and pain.
Maybe individually we can make it a better Christmas or new year for someone around us.

I always make it a point to look directly at homeless people and greet them. People tend to ignore homeless people. I know there are “panhandler’s” and most want to ignore these types due to the fact of constant begging for money, I look directly at them, even if I do not give them money, I give them a smile. The reason

I make this a point to perform is that where homeless people are “down and out” they are human beings the same as the rest of us. They are instantly treated less than human beings upon gaining the status of “homeless”. A smile could remind these lost souls that they are still worth greeting, this could truly be the difference for someone.
Our children need to view us performing random acts of kindness. We are our children’s life mirrors. They view the world as well as life through the actions of their parents. If daughters/sons view Mommy/Daddy going out of their way to help people or perform kind acts, this will more times to none filter down to our children and we will be viewing our children performing these acts in the future. Allowing your children to view these things enables children to learn kindness, compassion as well as love for people. Where I’m not stating that we should not teach our children “Stranger Danger“, we should enable them to view their parents being what I would classify as good human beings. It takes far less time to smile as compared to a frown, medically speaking, it takes far less muscles in our face to smile than frown, therefore, save yourself some early wrinkles and just smile.’ http://www.akinderworld.com

There has to be something you are able to do either this Christams or all year round. Love can change the world.

    I got a packet of milk buttons from a lady I meet every other day. It really warmed my heart. I’m just thinking that I also got a pomegranate from my neighbour a few months ago. Maybe we should start a movement. One random act a day! They will know us by the love we have for one another
