If you’re looking to make it big on the internet, people will tell you to “find your niche” and I’m not looking to make it big, but I am looking to “make kind cool”. We’re living in a society that has forgotten how to have conversations, say please and thank you, enjoy the moment.
When I was a little girl in the 70’s my parents both worked, and on Saturdays we would clean, do chores and Sundays we would go to church and then visit. We’d visit grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins. Sometimes on Saturday nights we would go to my Grandparents and make ice cream, we’d sit around and snap green beans in the summer, eat watermelon and then at 7pm we’d go in and watch Hee-Haw and then go out and catch lightning bugs. Oh what a fun and simple time!
Nowadays we’re so busy, no one has the time to visit. I’ll be honest, I work long hours, get home, watch tv and look online. I think about my neighbors, 3 men on my street have lost their wives and I think, “Gee….I should invite them over for dinner. Or I should take them dinner one night. Ask them to come over and play cards….” but then I get so busy.
The weekends are spent doing chores, INSERT EXCUSES. I’m afraid as much as I’d like to make this world a little brighter, I still fall short and don’t quite know what to do. Will I disturb them? Do they want my company? Would they like some food?
Maybe this weekend I’ll pick up some Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches and say “Hello, we are just thinking of you!” Or maybe some Popeye’s Fried Chicken? What’s the worst thing that can happen? Maybe I could even get an old fashioned ice cream machine? (That’s just crazy talk!!!)
This blog is set up to help spread stories of kindness. After I decided kindess and nice this was “my personal mission” I was just thrilled that David Byrne started a blog and https://reasonstobecheerful.world/ to #SpreadCheer and Chip and Joanna Gaines have made a campaign to #MakeKINDNESSLoud https://magnolia.com/we-believe-in-human-kindness/ and yeah, not many people know DeAnna Hay, a short, southern, cheerful, Christian lady that wants to make her corner of the world brighter. But I know there is much to do, starting with me.
Be encouraged #NiceNiche let’s start and let’s try!!!
