March 9 – Random Acts of Kindness Day

Teresa LeNeave

Wow! What a breath of fresh sunshine! Every time we turn on the news all we hear is what someone is doing wrong. Another war; another murder; another theft; another car wreck; and more financial woes.

How wonderful is it to get an opportunity to join thousands of others around America in doing something good for someone? That’s what March 9 is about. Having a special day for kindness is refreshing! It gives us hope for a world that is always warring in one way or the other.

This is a day, not for you to get, but to give. It’s a day for you to do something kind for someone who least expects it. Maybe no one will do anything for you today, but don’t even think about that. Think about someone else today. Who do you know that probably doesn’t get much attention? Maybe they are a stay-at-home mom and you could make a pot of soup for them today or just call and tell them how much you appreciate them. You may not think that’s anything, but believe me, “Mom’s rarely get a break” and it will be appreciated.

Maybe you know someone who is a prayer warrior. Why don’t you spend some time today praying for them? What about your fire department or county ambulance department? I bet they’d love for you to drop a dozen donuts, or some prepackaged pastries off at their place of work with a simple “thank you” note.

The question is this: “What can you do to DELIBERATELY brighten another person’s day?” The person you do something for probably won’t even know its Random Acts of Kindness Day, but that won’t matter. What matters is that you put a smile on someone’s face or at least make them wonder why you did what you did.

Who has shoveled snow from your steps or driveway this week? Didn’t that brighten your day? Of course, it did. Any act of kindness makes us aware of the goodness still in this world.

Jesus said, “Give and it will be given unto you. Good measure, pressed down, running over – for with the same measure you measure, it will be measured to you”. That should motivate us to show kindness. After all, don’t we want kindness to come back to us?

We won’t change the world by one day dedicated to one act of kindness, but we can change our own life. The real treasure is that our own attitude can change in a positive way. I remember seeing something on Face Book that said, “Unless someone like you cares, nothing is going to get better.”

Just one act, one day a year. Doesn’t sound like much does it? I’m sure you agree that most of us would rather have the roses while we live. Give a rose to someone today. It’s been a long, hard, cold winter. Someone needs a smile, a lift, an act of kindness. Will you be the one to deliver that little piece of fresh sunshine?

The greatest act of kindness is one that is freely given, when you expect nothing in return. Kindness has its own rewards for the giver. One thing is certain, it improves your own sense of well-being. What more could we ask? The greatest act of kindness is the one that is freely given because you care about another person and want them to be happy and you don't expect anything in return. The thing about kindness is that it has its own rewards and will improve your sense of well-being and happiness; what more could you possibly want?Expect nothing.
