I recently heard about a growing local organization that is working to promote small acts of kindness. Ben's Bells was started by a mother (and university professor) who suddenly lost her three year old son to a surprise illness. She found it almost impossible to move forward in life, but found that when a stranger held a door, smiled, offered the extra penny needed at the checkout, helped pick up a dropped grocery bag made all the difference in her strength to live.
I too experienced this during and even after my cancer treatments. When I wore my wigs, I looked normal from the outside, but my insides were sick, spirits sometimes low, and self-esteem sometimes plummeting. When someone shared a small act of kindness, it brought me warmth and hope. Thank you to all those who allowed me to feel that even during moments of darkness. I feel like I always preach it, and here it is again, it's the small things in life that matter.
Do something kind today.
I'd love to hear from you!........
