Try to share a kind word today

August 5, 2013 

This is a reminder to all folks out there: Let's stop and take a minute and remember our fellow human beings. Sometimes you may encounter a person during the course of your day who just looks as if they could use a smile or a kind word. We are all incredibly busy nowadays with the schedules that we keep. Jobs, kids, school, commitments to church, etc., all claim a spot in our day-to-day lives. But if every person out there would notice who and what is around them, they may just make the day of a person who really needs this kindness. We don't know what others are going through and often times you may be the only person who has shown another individual kindness in a long time. Do what you can to lift your fellow human being up and make a difference to someone's life. You may just have done more than you know.
