Random Acts of Kindness

Last Friday, my friend Sharon came over for some relaxation and girl time. After she knocked our door knocker (she never rings the doorbell!), I swung the door open to find her holding chocolate and tea bags. Seriously, this girl. She is SO good at blessing others with thoughtful gifts, and she shares so easily. While I would consider myself a fairly generous person, I really want to make 2013 a year of giving back ... and more than just tithing to our church. I want random acts of kindness to become a habit so that I'm giving to others consistently rather than when the thought sporadically pops into my head.

So, this week I'm going to attempt a random act of kindness and continue on that trend each week. I have lots of thoughts—paying for the person behind me at the Starbucks drive-thru, bringing cookies to the neighbor, sending a hand-written note to a friend—but I'd love to hear from those of you who have done this before, and from those of you who do this consistently.

And if you feel inspired, I'd invite you to join me in giving back. Like Ellen says, let's "be kind to one another" and make this world a better place. :)
