Be the Change...

In honor of the Sandy Hook Victims a #26Acts of Kindness campaign has been launched on twitter.  What a great idea to perform kind acts around the holidays and do something heartwarming in the wake of this heartwrenching tragedy.  I encourage everyone who reads this to do 26 kind things for random people or someone you love.  Write them notes and tell them how much you love them and care about them.  Pay for the person's food behind you at a drive thru.  Pay off someone's layaway at a local store.  Write notes to the first responders or police officers in your area or in Newtown and thank them for their service.  Go spend time with someone and listen to them.  Drop someone that you haven't seen in a while a line and let them know that you thought of them today.  The possibilities are endless.  It's so easy to get caught up in going through the motions of life and miss what's important especially this time of year. And please don't just stop when the holiday's are over.  If we all took the time to show God's love and reach out to others on a daily basis, you could prevent something like this from happening simply by being compassionate and valuing someone who doesn't value himself/herself.  A little bit of kindness goes a long way.  You never know when you could positively impact someone and change their life forever. 
Be the change.
