Heart Warming: More Good Deeds
Like last time I posted, this week we get a bird’s eye view of even more good deeds. It’s heart warming to be reminded of how simply we can impact a person – or a large group of people – by offering the simplest kindness.
Here we go with the pictures!
1. A couple pays it forward with buying a meal for a young family with children. This not only helped the wallet of the husband/ dad. It also helped imbed a lesson in kindness they will most likely remember and pass along from time to time. How lovely!
2. Take a look at the next three pictures here. You see a father and a mother kissing their precious baby. They’re kissing him goodbye. The last picture shows a staff of surgeons and surgical nurses bowing, in the long held Japanese tradition. The reason? Two of the organs of this precious little donor are going to allow two other people to live. Those bowing are doing so out of respect and gratitude for the unselfish act of two parents who offer the gift of life to others. What unselfish goodness. Heart breaking, yet so noble and beautiful.
3. A devastating tornado just hit Oklahoma two days ago. It will take years for those good people to regain the basic goods of this world that are needed. There are weeks, and months, of clean up. During this time, they will lean heavily on one another. On the goodness of strangers. On the strength of prayer. Is there a way you can help them, in a real way? I am not one to usually donate to an organization – one where I’m not sure how much is actually getting to the ones who need the assistance. But I will find a way to help… probably through friends who live in the state, and can literally give the needed items to those whose lives are changed. Bless them as they move forward, trying to mend and build.
4. How cool is this? A mailman has figured out a way to spread cheer and kindness in the sweetest way. Imagine how nice your day would be, should you be the recipient! I love it.
Yep. Kindness is simple. Done in so many ways. Easy to make someone’s day. And a delight to the giver and receiver.
If we make a promise to do the little things to add goodness to another’s day, we find our own days become better and more beautiful. That’s good stuff.
And goodness matters.
