What I learned today:
I AM A SYMPATHY CRIER.. If you cry, I will join you. I don't even need to know what you are crying about, it doesn't matter I will choose to participate, thats just how I am :) a VS worker started to tear up, I joined her... as I stood back behind a counter watching my little group of kindness ambassadors waiting to bless santa and his workers, I teared up some more, and when I heard about that sweet lady I LOST IT! I pulled myself back together for a short lunch break and then when we got in the car to head home, I cried some more, and as I am sitting here typing this I am still crying. I can't begin to tell you how this 12 days of kindness has changed my heart for spreading kindness and loving on people. If we can help make each day a little brighter for people, if we can help them feel a little less lonely, and if we can help them feel needed and appreciated, this my friends is exactly Why my family is doing this! I can definately see where it has changed Gentry too... today I would hand her something and she would immediately try to give it away. I am happy this is not only affecting my heart but hers too. She is truly learning what it is to give to others, whether its, flowers, cold drinks, cookies, or hugs, she gets it!
Today I am even more encouraged then I was yesterday by the ripple effect of kindness going on here :) and I am blessed to have great friends who are eager to join this movement as well! Mariah and Ashley, Thank you! thank you for not only your friendship, but your kind and tender hearts that have a desire to help bless others!
