Some of you are cooking, some of you are traveling, some of you are sleeping, but I hope you all take a moment today to pause and...

     Make a list of your blessings. 

     Call someone who has done something nice for you.

     Write an email or send a card to someone you appreciate.

     Acknowledge the positive traits of others around you instead of their negative traits.

     Think of all the people who have done you good and forgive those who have hurt you.

     Do a little act of kindness today and every day.

Several weeks ago my exercise instructor said her church gave everybody a twenty dollar bill and told them to give it to a random person who looked like they needed a little love.  As they handed the $20 they were to smile and say, "You are special and God loves you."  I thought it was such a great idea I've given away five $20 in the past two weeks.  One went to a convenience store clerk, another to a housekeeper, a tired looking fast food server... I've been blessed more than the people I've given the money to.  And, it's not the money.  It's an acknowledgment that I recognize you and appreciate you.  Somebody cares.

I appreciate each of YOU!  Thank you for caring for children every day!
