Simple Acts of Kindness

I was raised in church...I was raised a member of the United Methodist Church.  And, even though I don't go on a regular basis, I love the United Methodist Church...it is good for my soul!  This past Sunday when my mom was in town, she and I went to the Methodist Church close to my house.  I have been to this church a few times and I love the minister there. 

This Sunday's sermon, in particular, really hit home for me.  He asked each of us if we have witnessed Simple Acts of Kindness this week.  That really got me thinking...I sometimes get so bitter and focused on what is going on in my life that I fail to notice, much less DO simple acts of kindness.  In fact, I couldn't think of a single example of such behavior in my life in the last week.  Therefore, I decided right then that whenever I find myself becoming Negative Nancy I am going to focus instead on a Simple Act of Kindness.

What Simple Acts of Kindness have you witnessed this week?

I go to Saint Mark UMC and we have a challenge where when you go through a drive thru to get food and you pay, tell them that you are also going to pay for the person in line behind you. I've done this before and I've also had it done to me before and it truly makes a persons day!!!
