Today, when I got home from work, I decided to walk the track while my daughter was at soccer practice. I needed to clear my head and gain some perspective after an emotionally trying day.
While people complain about their kids playing too many video games (guilty 🙋🏼♀️), not cleaning up after themselves (🙋🏼♀️), not giving the “perfect” Mother’s Day gift, or any other number of things we, as parents, whine about…there are children…CHILDREN…who are on hospice, homeless, in residential programs, in foster care, or struggling with the weight of the world that has become so hard to bare that they crumble.
As a mother, teacher, and all around advocate for children of all types…please, PLEASE count your blessings each day and be kind to everyone…you don’t know what cross they may bare.
And if you ARE one of these people or know of these people, please know that you are stronger than you think and so many of us are here for you.
You don’t have to navigate this world alone.
To those of you still reading, I challenge you to spread kindness everywhere you go. Do 3 random acts of kindness and simply ask that they pass it on to 3 more people. Hopefully you will touch a person who needs it the most at just the right time.
Thank you for reading one of my more serious, but incredibly needed, posts.
Have a wonderful night and God bless!
