Most People Don't Suck

Okay, so it's time for me to leave behind my irritation, anger and sadness that hit me when my credit cards and cell phone got stolen. It's time for me to realize that most people are good, and the bad ones shouldn't minimize that. I want to be optimistic and I want to be part of the solution.

Astarte mentioned in the comments of my last post that she is making a conscious effort to be extra nice to people. That is exactly what I want to do too. I want to make other people's day better.

At school today when I ate lunch with my boys there was a poster of things to do for others. There was a website at the bottom. I wish I could remember the text of the poster, because it was really nice, and I'm glad the school is encouraging kindness.

I'm not sure where all of this is heading for me, but I really feel the desire to do more to make the world a better place, and most importantly to include my children in that endeavor. The Acts of Kindness website (link above) has lesson plans designed for schools, but the ones I've seen can be incorporated into home activities. I'm adding some of this on my list of things to do.

Awww... you make my day better all the time!

I liked that website. I think I'm going to email a link to my church youth pastor and see if he'd like to make a page with the youth group. How cool!
