Have you ever been inspired by a book you read? Since I love to read, it is no suprise that I have been inspired to spread a little neighborly love-not only with my neighbors but with friends and family.
Recently I finished Angel Lane by Sheila Roberts. In the book, three ladies decide to do random acts of kindness in their community and they urge other members of the community to get involved. They learned a lot about themselves in the process. One of the woman used a jar of goodies that she gave away as one of her acts of kindness.
Since it's almost Valentine's Day, I filled two jars with chocolate and plan on giving them to people with a little note about passing the jar on to others and ideas for how to fill it. They can be filled with candy, cookies, homemade soup, cookie ingredients, makings for a craft, or any other creative ideas the giver can come up with. I chose chocolate because we are supposed to be getting a snow storm tonight and I know being snowed in with chocolate is always a good thing.
It is always nice to get an unexpected pick-me-up. You never know what is going on in the lives of people you meet so this may be just the thing to turn their day around. You can deliver them anonymously or hand deliver them. You can choose neighbors, strangers, acquaintances, co-workers, fellow church members, or even friends.
Anyone else interested in spreading some cheer? What are some random acts of kindness that you have done or plan to do?
