Pay It Forward In Your Community – Spread Kindness Not Hate

Pay It Forward - How a cup of coffee could change your life IMG (2)

I want to pose a challenge to all every person reading this! This week I want every one of you to do something kind for someone else, Pay It Forward! It does not cost anything to be kind. You can hold a door open for a stranger, help an older neighbor bring in their garbage cans, the list goes on and on. Teach your children and grandchildren this trait, better yet let them help. Case and point, while looking for Pokemon after church yesterday, we met a homeless woman (she was resting in a parking lot), my son had snacks in the back seat and got out of the car and gave what we had to her. This morning we paid for the person behind us in line at Starbucks ( I had a gift card). You may never know the persons name, but for at least one moment, you made another person smile, and offered kindness. Neither of these things cost anything.. get out there and be kind..Pay It Forward!

Paying It Forward: It Only Takes A Minute
