2017: The Year to be Thankful

thanks-1804597_960_720By Jennifer Hallmark

2017 is just beginning and it’s time for a fresh start and with me, a new focus. In December, I always pray about a focal point for the next year. A thought or scripture to wrap my mind around so when life gets hard, I can remember and not lose heart. This year, my focus is to be thankful.

Just pure simple gratitude.

And being thankful can tie right in with Small Acts of Kindness. When I am thankful and content with who I am and what I have, I can be a blessing to others. One way to show my gratitude is to be intentional when it comes to the people I met each day, whether in person or online.

Have you ever been overwhelmed by gratefulness over an act of kindness by a friend, family member, or organization? Have your children or spouse done something so sweet you just have to share? I have openings on this blog page, Small Acts of Kindness, scattered throughout the rest of this year which usually post every Monday.

Just drop me a line if you’re interested and we’ll share your thoughts with others. You might inspire someone to follow your lead.

So this year, why don’t you join me in esteeming others more highly than myself and see what we can do to change the world around us?

One Small Act of Kindness at a time…

  1. A small act of kindness can truly change the life of someone. A smile, a nod, a “How are you?”, allowing someone to go in line ahead of you at the store, saying “Hello” to a neighbor, a note in the mail, and so many more things can be blessings. We never know what someone may be experiencing, so those small acts of kindness can truly change lives. 🙂
