GESTURES OF KINDNESS

February 1, 2017

GESTURES OF KINDNESS
By
Linda M. Penn

    Did you allow your kids to watch any news coverage of our recent presidential election and inauguration?  Since my grandkids do not live with me, I did not have to face this issue head-on with them.  However, I did face it with just myself.  I ended up turning off the TV on several occasions, wondering where gestures and words of kindness had gone in America.

    In my heart, I knew most people were nice, considerate, and upstanding, right?
I remembered the story of the Florida State University football player who showed a gesture of kindness to a young middle school student in the school cafeteria.  The football player sat down at a table and began talking with a young man who was all alone.  The picture and story appeared all over news outlets in the country.  All the football player had done was sit down and talk to a kid who was obviously alone while the other students were huddled together at other tables.  No big deal?  Wrong!   In interviews with the news media, the mom repeated that small act of kindness made a huge impact on her lonely son.

    Okay, we may never have our story and picture in an article about being kind, but in our little part of the world, we can do our part.  We all want a better world and we can’t leave it up to others to get us all there to that point.  It begins in our hearts!  (It is Valentine’s Day this month) Let’s see now, what could we actually do? 

    SMILE AT THE GROCERY CLERK.
    SAY “THANK YOU, PLEASE,” TO THE WAITRESS.
    HELP “GRANNY” GET SOMETHING FROM A HIGH SHELF OR BETTER YET, AN AIRPLANE OVERHEAD BIN. 
    ALLOW SOMEONE WITH TWO ITEMS TO GO AHEAD OF YOU IN LINE EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE TEN ITEMS AND ARE IN A RUSH TO GET DINNER.
    CALL AND CHECK ON A SICK BUDDY. (NO, NOT TEXT!)
    SEND A CARD THANKING A FRIEND FOR PICKING UP YOUR KIDS NUMEROUS TIME FROM SOCCER PRACTICE WHILE YOU WORKED LATE. (NO, NOT TEXT!)

    The key to a better world is looking for those opportunities to do gestures of kindness.  God probably won’t tap on your shoulder telling you to take food to your neighbor who sprained her ankle!  Let’s all make a belated New Year resolution during this month of love to look for a daily way to show a genuine gesture of kindness!  GUESS WHAT?  YOU KNOW WHO IS WATCHING YOU?  THAT’S RIGHT – YOUR KIDS!  SO GUESS WHO WILL NOW START LOOKING FOR DAILY GESTURES OF KINDNESS – YES, YOUR KIDS!

 Have a lovely Valentine’s Day Month.  See you the first week of March.
