Folks talk about karma a lot. It's not "new age" you know...the concept is as old as time and in my grandmother's words simply means that You Reap What You Sow or as I so often tell my children...What Goes Around Comes Around.
I'm a big believer and a FIRM believer that while big things are important, it's the sum total of the little things that really make a difference. Things like putting a shopping cart in the parking lot area designated for shopping carts rather than leaving it in a parking place or letting the person with just a few items get in front of you in a checkout line if you have a buggy full. Holding a door for someone or smiling at them when you pass...even if they are strangers. How about letting someone turn or merge into traffic on a busy day and NOT giving in to road rage?
I guess we could call those things "small graces" but they are graces nonetheless. Most mornings at work, the custodian fills our coffee pot up with water and puts a nice clean filter in for us. It might take her five minutes and doesn't cost a dime but oh my stars...what a blessing.
The economy is in a fix right now but grace and kindness don't cost a thing, yet can help improve the feelings of the recipient AND the giver immeasurably.
Has anybody shown grace and/or kindness to you lately?
HERE IS THE CHALLENGE...Write a post about it and please let me know so that I can read it. LET'S START A MOVEMENT...OK, so I don't know what to call our movement BUT LET'S DO IT ANYWAY!!!
ARE YOU WITH ME???
