You have 15 minutes to address the whole world live (on television or radio — choose your format). What would you say?
I would tell anyone listening to look up and make eye contact with someone as they pass. Your fellow man or woman can’t be so scary you cannot be bothered to look them in the eye. You might find yourself saying hello and making a new friend. It could be someone in need of help and you are the only person around.
I have passed people and said hello; only to receive a lokk that appearded to say, “What is your problem?”, “Why are you speaking to me?”.
Don’t be like that, there is kindness in everyone. Let it shine. Show the world the true you. Let yourself shine!
We do not know what the next minute will bring. Do not waste it! Enjoy life and maybe influence someone else with a simple hello and some eye contact. Be positive! God loves us all, no matter what!
I would like to tell everyone that today in the check-out line at the grocery store, the young woman ahead of me asked if I would like for her to take the items out of my shopping cart [and set them on the conveyor belt.] I smiled and let her do it. “Oh, like a random act of kindness?” I asked. “Yes, kind of like that,” she said, “I used to do it for my grandmother.” So I smiled and let her do it. After all, I am 75 and could be her grandmother. The woman was quickly gone with her family, but her kindness lightened the load of a long day for me.
Hi Sister! Good story. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Been busy with a deathly ill husband! Almost lost him! Thanks for commenting. Jill
Great advice 🙂
Good luck on Monday. Hope it’s not too serious
It was serious, but my hubby is a tough nut to crack! He has pulled through with flying colors! Thank you for responding! Jill
I’m glad. A speedy recovery to him so you can be able to have a restful Christmas
