February 17th is National Random Acts of Kindness Day.  I find it a little ironic because it’s not random at all…. It requires some thinking ahead and planning.  But I do understand the person receiving the kindness may perceive it as random.

What is so beautiful about this concept is that someone is going about her day and she suddenly collides with an unexpected blessing.  If you’ve ever been a recipient of such kindness, you understand what an impact it can make.

Today I’m working through some options I’d like to do on Sunday, February 17th.  Here’s my list of ideas so far:

  • Share a meal with a someone.
    • Invite someone to have Sunday dinner with me and my family.
    • Give a restaurant/gift card to a single mom.
  • Give a winter item to someone in need.
  • Pay it forward for someone in line
    • Pay for someone’s coffee in line behind me.
    • Let someone use my grocery loyalty card if they forgot theirs.
    • Pay a student’s library fine.
  • Let someone know I appreciate them… especially someone ignored by everyone else.
  • Let someone in front of me in line
    • When I'm checking out.
    • When I'm driving.
  • Volunteer at a soup kitchen or other charity.
  • Take a meal to someone who can’t get out.

There are so many ways to be kind!  I hope you’ve enjoyed the list above.  If you have any other ideas, I’d love to hear them… just leave a comment below.

I’m going to think through this list and see what I can do on Sunday the 17th.  At the end of the day, all it takes is a little intention and planning.  It also takes keeping an eye out for people who might be marginalized or overlooked.  Will you join me?  Which one are you going to do?

When my husband and I were dating, we had some ground rules to establish.  One of those was exactly what I expected on Valentine’s day.  I thought it was pretty simple, really.  I didn’t want flowers, I didn’t want chocolates… in fact, I didn’t want anything.  And that’s exactly what I got.
