Make Random Acts of Kindness a Part of Who You Are!

    Once when I was a teen, I was walking home on a beautiful spring afternoon. I saw a tree ahead of me in full bloom–It was filled with the most amazing pink flowers. I wanted to smell the flowers, but I couldn’t reach a branch. I jumped up a few times, but I was just too short. I then noticed an older boy walking in the same direction, not far behind me. I tried a couple more times to reach a branch, but my efforts were in vain, so I gave up.

    Less than a minute later, I heard a voice calling, “Excuse me, excuse me.” I turned to see the older boy running up behind me, holding a stem of flowers from the tree. He just handed it to me without a word. I thanked him sincerely and he nodded and continued walking on his way.

    This incident happened a long time ago, but I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. It wasn’t a big deal, but it demonstrated how even a tiny act of kindness can make a huge difference.

    The following two clips show other acts of kindness that not only benefited the receivers, but also inspired those who witnessed the unselfish acts.

    You can perform an act of kindness in many ways. Sometimes a normal day offers an opportunity to help someone in a small way. Other times, you plan to help people in need in a much larger way.

    Ladies, you don’t have to be rich to perform a random act of kindness. You can brighten a day with a smile.

    I pray you all are inspired to offer acts of kindness throughout your lives. And in doing so, I can promise you that in return, those acts will make a difference. You may not know the outcome or the consequence, but like the boy with the stem of flowers, your small act could be remembered forever. Better still, it could prompt the receivers to perform acts of kindness of their own.
