Open the door for someone. Help carry groceries for a stranger. Take some baked goods to your neighbors. In other words, perform a SELFLESS ACT for someone, ANYONE. I’d like to invite you to join me in honoring the 26 lives that were lost in the Newtown, CT tragedy by committing #26 Acts of Kindness. Ann Curry recently launched this online campaign that is taking off around the country. It immediately touched my heart and I knew I wanted my family and I to be a part of this GOODNESS going on in our country. In fact, Daddy Russ began our first Random Act of Kindness yesterday by helping a lady with a broken down car (LOVE HIM). I’ve created a small printable that you may download, print and handout if you’d like (I did the best I could – I’m no designer). I plan to circle the name of the person that each act is committed in memory of and say a special prayer just for them. You may choose to pass along a print out to the person you gave the act of kindness to as well. To download click here. To download click here. Throughout each day I plan to post my list of Random Acts of Kindness here in hope that it might inspire you (or even give you an idea). This is definitely one of those times that THE MORE, THE MERRIER applies! Please feel free to also comment below with your Random Acts of Kindness!

Throughout each day I’ve been trying to not only commit at least one act of kindness but I’m also trying to smile at as many people as possible, tell people Merry Christmas, drive a little nicer, hug Daddy Russ and Luke and tell them I love them a little bit more, and just try to be a better overall person. Even Luke seems to have join in. Yesterday while at the grocery store I swear he told atleast 50 people “HI!” with a little wave. Every day I’ve been praying that God will let me know where he needs my assistance the most. Each time I commit an act of kindness it makes me feel so incredibly good. If you’d like to see the different acts of kindness that I’ve committed so far just visit my first blog post by clicking here.
