Who Was Kind to You Today?

something kind

A few days ago my friend Tammy, who was my biggest inspiration when starting my blog, shared this with me, writing, “I think this would make a great prompt for a blog post! How wonderful to have people share these acts of kindness with you!” I love the idea!  I love hearing about kindness shared.  Whether it is something big or a small gesture, a simple act of kindness can affect you.

I was touched by kindness today by the parent of a former student of mine.  She was cleaning out her sons’ bookshelves and wanted to donate them to my classroom.  I went to her house and went through them finding appropriate ones.  As I went through the books I was able to find ones that were fitting to share with another teacher in our school who is new and is in need of books for her classroom library.

That’s mine. Tell me something kind someone did for you today.  Keep the chain of kindness going. Kindness is contagious!  I hope you catch it!

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!
