“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou
This can go along with yesterday’s prompt. Pass around a piece of paper and ask everyone to write a compliment about the person whose name is on the top of the list. Then, on their special day, or any day you choose, you can give them the list. Do this for everyone in your group. You could do this with family members, co-workers, in a classroom, among a group of volunteers. A teacher named Helen Mrosla’s had this great kindness idea.
“Helen discovered that her students cherished these sheets so much that the students kept them and still talked about them a decade later. The parents of one student told Helen that their son took the paper with him when he was deployed and kept it with him the entire time.”
Alternately, give a compliment to a passing stranger.
Day 3 of 365: The List
I don’t teach or go to an office job, but I am making this list in preparation for our Family Council meeting on Sunday. I’ve asked my son and husband to list five things they like and/or admire about the other two of us. Then I’ll make a list, decorate and frame it.
One thing we have in common for certain — the same boss.
Today is Day 3 of "Buttons for Benjamin" - 365 SAoK (Small Acts of Kindness) to help get the word out about my missing son Benjamin. It's also to help me find a proactive way to stay positive as the third anniversary of Ben's disappearance (March 2nd) approaches. This (above) is the Day-3 blurb I wrote for the KindSpring challenge "Ben Archer's 35th Birthday Year of Kindness." This is also my SAoK for the day below that. The challenge is 21 days long, so for the next three weeks, I'll share the blurb and corresponding SAoK. Beginning on February 28th and every Tuesday after that, I'll post the week's SAoK's on under1000skies in a post called "Full of Grace."
