If you are like me a simple act of kindness, especially unexpected, can make my entire day. How great to have someone hold the door for you, help carry a load, tell you how nice you look or ask you how someone you love is doing. It is a reminder, in very concrete ways, that just by virtue of being a fellow person on this journey through life, you matter! It is so wonderful to be appreciated for just being you and not always for what you might have done that earned you that special care. Our Neighbors feel this every time you touch their lives. Your actions become messages that remind all of us of our common humanity and our responsibility to care for one another.
This is precisely why we are so thankful to be staff members at the Foothills Caring Corps. We get to witness your acts of kindness both to us and others every day and that is amazing. We are always being surprised! Your service sends us out the door each day with a sense of hopefulness and appreciation in the goodness of life. Volunteers, we love what you do, but we love who you are as well. Your kindness is infectious! It changes our community.
In this season of thankfulness lets all remember that acts of kindness are nuclear. They not only bring joy and well being to the one who receives but they have the power to affect all those who witness them as well. Thank you and may you be invited to slow down a bit, appreciate who you are and continue to show kindness to those you meet. It is powerful!
