Here We Go Again…

 

It’s so important, especially now, to try to turn our focus on positive lysolstories. If we wanted to bring ourselves down, all we’d have to do is turn on the news or ask someone how they’re doing!

 

Many here have been sharing posts that dwell not on the woe is me tale, but on learning to appreciate the present and all that we have. 

 

I also like to share stories of people sharing their kindness with others. 

 

Once again while shopping in my local large grocery store chain, a young employee took a few moments to share his thoughtfulness. 

 

I was in the cleaning supply aisle hoping to find some hard to find products. Just as I was about to leave the aisle, unsuccessful in my search, a young man stopped me, reached up on a shelf and pulled down 2 cans of Lysol Spray! 

 

Could you use these?  

 

And with that, I had my Lysol! I later called the store manager to sing this young man’s praises. 

 

These random acts of kindness serve to reinforce my faith in the basic goodness that lies within us. They’re out there...keep your eyes open for them and share them with us. 

 

be kind

Did you take both cans or just one?  We definitely have to appreciate the little things in our lives since they lead to overall happiness!

I do see some wonderful people. I think we let the voices of the evil sometimes drown them out.

Hi Kathy you are  so spot on!!  Little acts of kindness given can make such a huge difference and even more so now when we've all got so much to deal with. Just about everyone I know laughingly has been saying - let's just stop 2020 and go to 2021.  Maybe it's time to put our Christmas trees.  And today it will be only 116 in Phoenix BUT it's a dry heat hahaha.

Wayne Martin those acts brighten our days.

I agree Peter den Boer and perhaps more people will see others doing kind things and follow suit.

Beth Atalay That is so true.  Someone may be having a bad day or going through a tough time so even the gesture of a smile can help.

Grant Schneider the people in our grocery stores are working so hard to keep the shelves stocked as well as wiping everything down 

Brian England I ended up taking two ... one for each niece since they are working outside the home.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel and doesn't it make us feel incredibly good inside!!!

Norma J. Elkins I love what you said about making your heart sing. 

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 when all you hear are negative stories you can't help but walk around feeling like the world is coming to an end.

George Souto I'm glad I spoke to the manager because they have a program where they reward their employees with gift cards for good service. 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I agree...they often drown out the positive words and deeds.

Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! I'm laughing because the first time I was in dry heat like yours, I drank so much water I was always going to the bathroom.  But, my skin looked great!
