If you live on the East Coast, you are probably starting to brace yourself for what is being called, “the biggest snow storm in years”. The news channels are warning us to “hunker down” and get ready to be stuck inside for a day or two. I am not one to normally panic before a storm, but I did have my husband make sure the cars had enough gas, and we had the basic essentials in the house just in case… After the big hurricane in the fall, and being without power for ten days, better to be prepared.
Here are some easy ways to share some Random Acts of Kindness during the storm:
- Lend a hand to an elderly or disabled neighbor by helping to shovel their walk
- Check in on elderly neighbors
- Make a batch of cookies or a big pot of soup – keep some for yourself and give some to a neighbor
During the hurricane, before we lost power, I made a big batch of oatmeal cookies and brought them to a few neighbors. After the power went out, one of those neighbors stopped by with a battery powered radio for us. One good deed leads to another. Plus, it makes you feel good!!!
