If I go to a hospital that has a parking garage that you have to pay,
I will give an extra amount when I leave and ask the attendant to use
for someone who needs a friendly jesture for the day. I know the
attendant has used the money the way I asked because I usually get
a “God has truly blessed you” from him. I also have my children at
least once a year go through their stuffed animals and decide which
ones they are ready to share with others, we then clean them and my
children deliver them to the local Sheriff’s Office. Officers use
these whenever they go on a call and give them to a child to make the
experience a little better for the child. I also have my children go
once a week to a local retirement home to spend time with the
residents-reading, walking, playing bingo, etc. Our extended family
lives in another state and it also helps my children to not miss
their grandparents quite as much. Sometimes it is just the little
things that can mean the most-a smile, holding a door, saying hello,
waving-you just never know how you may have changed someone’s outlook
on life for that day.
