Thankful Thursdays…Pay It Forward
Quickly, what was the last act of kindness that someone paid to you?
It’s time to pay it back or forward if you haven’t already. Today we celebrate Pay It Forward Day.
Absolutely, every day is a day when we are given the opportunity to Pay It Forward. We can give without restrictions a kind word or share a kind smile with someone.
The more you Pay It Forward, the more kindness and love that goes out in the world from each and every one of us, it cannot help but have a positive impact on us and those we touch.
Our one act of kindness can be like a drop of rain that falls on a pond creating ripples that reach far and wide.
In case you need some ideas, you can…
Bring in your neighbor’s paper or trash cans
Check on a senior you know to see if there is anything they need.
Call someone who is ill or has someone ill living in their home. Ask them if you can run an errand for them.
Buy a coffee or a beverage for the person standing behind you.
Call someone to thank them for a kind act they did for you.
“Put a heart on your hand and share with us while living out kindness!"
There is no wrong way to perform an act of kindness. Catherine Ryan Hyde
