Birthday wishes for kindness

In the end, only kindness mattersSo many friends wished me a happy birthday. Thank you all. If you can read this, then know that I count you as a friend.

A couple of weeks ago a good friend passed away. Oren Miller was his name. He said that you can find Heaven where you look. Where you are. Google his name to see what I am talking about, I promise you will be enriched.

So I challenge each of you. Look at the world around you. Hug your kids if you have any. If you don’t have any, hug your partner/spouse, visit a friend. Above all, show kindness to others. It will be returned to you a hundredfold.

I love random acts of kindness. purchasing a coffee for the person behind me in line, a meal when I can afford one for someone else. All of these things can brighten the day of a stranger. You never know what that person is dealing with in their life. Your act of kindness might be the bright spot in their day.

You don’t have to spend a fortune. Donate a dollar.

Heck, hold the door for the next person entering a building. Greet them with a smile. If you are in traffic, let a car in to your lane if they are trying to enter traffic.

That greeter at Wal-Mart? I love to stop and visit with that person. They see more people in a day and week then most people will see in their life. And most of the time they have smiles on their faces.

Above all. Share a kindness with others. I promise it will be returned at some point.
