A Lesson – From A Child

This week I’ve launched my blog, it’s a soft launch, but I continue to be inspired by kids who are changing the world by simple acts of kindness.

Today I read a beautiful story about a young man named Christian and he helped his friend at school by taking his hand. (Story is attached)

I LOVE that the internet makes the world so small that I can hear about Christian supporting his friend in Wichita KS all the way in North Carolina.

This past couple of months I’ve worked on “finding my niche”. If I’m going to blog it needs to be about a couple of things, but mainly kindness. It’s been interesting to me that McDonald’s and Chip Gaines both released some initiatives last weeks on kindness, because they see a need for it too.

Last week I pushed my husband to “pay it forward” in a fast food line, he said, “DeAnna I don’t know what to do.” I said, “Ask how much is the ticket behind you and pay for it. Simple. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.” He simply didn’t know what to do.

This week, I’ve been telling people a little more about what I’ve done, and I’m NOT telling what I’ve done to be proud of it. BUT I am telling people to give them a starting point.

Take a lesson from Christian, if you see an opportunity and see someone hurting, reach out your hand. I’ll take a lesson from Christian, my hand is out – how can I help you grow in kindness?

All my best,

DeAnna
