random acts of kindness

did you ever post something and then later regret it?? that was me a couple days ago.. it wasn't so bad, but it was negative.. and negative breeds negative...and i reread it while i ran at gym-with some it's gone now. :)
what i would like to say: be kind!!! it is pretty much always appreciated.
i was in charge of a large women's group dinner recently. our theme was summed up as: "kindness to others".
we came up with a neat take home for the fridge, bookmark, whatever...
thank you-thank you.... to all of the great help!!! (it was a large task)
please print this out, ad to it... pin it on your fridge, pass it around...the world needs more kindness.

I love this list! I make a point to try to let others merge in traffic. I also always pay attention to hold the door open for others when they are entering or exit when I am. Little, tiny acts, but I hope they make someone's day just a bit easier.
