My Lenten “sacrifice” this year was to do a Random Act of Kindness everyday. I should not say it is a sacrifice because I have been having so much fun leaving little treats for my coworkers. I don’t sign who they are from, I just place it on their desk or in their mailbox each morning. A few days ago, there was something in my own mailbox and I have been seeing little treats in other mailboxes as well so someone else…or maybe a few others are doing the same thing! The students are talking about it with their own RAK’s and sharing their ideas of paying it forward.
Right now at our school there is some sort of outbreak of illness going around and a large number of students have been out of school for the week. Our school nurse has been busier than ever. We joked that she needs one of those, “take a number” machines they have at deli counters with the amount of kids showing up at her door! Hopefully, whatever it is that is going around ends quickly. This is one thing spreading around the building that I hope ends soon!!
As for the kindness, I hope that it becomes even more contagious and continues to spread throughout the community because the more massive it gets, the more amazing it will become!
