Random Acts of Christmas

Posted on | December 19, 2010 | 3 Comments

It’s the week of Christmas.

And all year round, I do a lot of moaning and groaning about how hard things are for me. About how I hate balancing work and home. About how dag-um hard everything is.

But it’s Christmas. And there are people out there who have it way worse.

So in honor of Christmas, I’m taking the time to do something awesome for a random person. Once a day. Every day this week. And I think it’s gonna make all the difference to my attitude.

Who’s with me? Who can spare a little time each day to help someone out who is having a tougher time than you? I think if we do this, every day, we’re going to find ourselves in some kind of wonderful mood come Christmas.

You can keep what you’ve done to yourself and treasure it in your heart. Or you can share your ideas in the comments below. It doesn’t matter. The important part is just to share what you can, with someone who needs it.

    I read your post before sneaking out early to get my Starbucks fix. There was a man outside the store asking for two quarters. (I never carry cash.) Instead, I invited him inside, and bought him a cup of coffee and a pastry. It's amazing how less than $5 can help another feel normal.

    Thanks for the inspiration today!

    I've been thinking along the same lines. I heard a story the other day about a lady who buys the groceries of the person behind her in line once a month all year round. I can't afford quite that level of commitment but I think I'm going to do that for some family this week.
