How do you show Kindness?
Sometimes inspiration comes from hearing how other people are finding ways to show kindness. It’s not about the recognition but rather about receiving encouragement to continue looking for opportunities. Share what you’re doing here, and help inspire others along the way! The counter below should encourage us all as the numbers continue to rise. Let’s love our neighbors and spread kindness!
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Jumping someone’s car
Noticed a homeless man with his dog sitting in the shade. I’d seen him before but never had a chance to speak with him. Today I hoped he’d still be there when I got out of the store. I bought him some basic quality food and his pup some food and a big bottle of ice cold water. I actually got to talk with him and get to know his story. I have been homeless three times and know the “assumptions” that homeless people are lazy,druggies,dangerous etc……I was told that he was from Nebraska and his wife cheated on him and took all the money from accounts and left him homeless. He came out here but his plans/arrangements fell through and it’s just him and his dog. He wants to work but because he can’t supply proof of address with bills (duh….. he’s homeless!!) nobody will hire him. He never has anyone talk with him. It’s such a vicious cycle. Now that I know him I can maybe get to know him a bit better and find organizations out here that could help. I am not familiar with this agenda.
We know an elderly lady down the street who has many health issues, I made her a pretty bouquet of fake flowers, butterflies and greenery in a mason jar with rocks to put on their front table on their porch to cheer her up . They love sitting on the front porch and talking to people who walk by. 😀
75 $5 gift cards were donated to Sierra Vista JR High School for their Summer Impact summer school program. The Summer Impact program is mostly for low-income, first-generation US, and foster kids in the summer school program. The kids who are there are in b/c they're struggling academically and need some extra help. They asked RLC to donate these gift cards to help make learning fun for the students.
I never thought I'd coach girls soccer, but when my daughter's team needed a coach, I stepped up. Honestly, I think I am having more fun than the girls!
My neighbor and friend is pregnant with her second child, so I baked some treats and took them over to give her a little break!
I love paying it forward, at Starbucks I paid for the car behind me, hoping it made their day!
Our neighbor recently lost her husband, so we've taken her trash to the curb. A small act to let her know she isn't alone.
