For ya’ll that don’t know me, I’m DeAnna – late 40’s, short, friendly. One of my many mottos is, “I talk to strangers, but I never take the candy.” I’m at the point where my path is not clearly defined, but it’s getting clearer. You need folks like me to spread some cheer.
This past year or so it’s just been pressed on my heart that there needs to be more kindness in the world. Like everything, if you’re looking for something specific, you’ll find more of it.
This year I heard about 2 young women who I think are doing AMAZING WORK in their communities.
3 Wishes for Ruby’s Residents really struck me. When I read about this my Mom had been in a rehab facility for a few weeks after back surgery and let me tell you what, this story just touched a place in my heart. My Sunday School class (The Dorcas Class I lovingly refer to as “My Dorcas Heads”) are widowed ladies all 75+ and I see the need for community at their age. (This weekend we are skipping Sunday school to “go visiting” one of our girls in pallative care) How amazing that Ruby was brought up in an environment of giving and caring.
Another little girl that touched my heart was Bella Smith. She found out her classmates didn’t have cakes for their birthdays and she started making boxes for her friends. Cake mix, sprinkles, plates, balloons. She covered it all in her boxes and her smile – every time I see it, she just makes me smile. 🙂
So these 2 young ladies really inspired me. Now me, I’m a connector. I like to connect people so they may be inspired. I’ll pick up bits and pieces of the good things I see and hear and work on spreading the joy around.
This blog is for a few reasons, but mostly I’d like to generate kindness. The world we live in needs it so much. I’m just getting started, so it’s a little sloppy, bear with me, I’m a work in progress. But keep coming back for some good news and tips.
Telephone. Television. Tell-a-DeAnna.
