Passing On A Little Kindness
Wednesday afternoon my daughter Maggie's father in law was killed in a car crash. He was leaving work and heading to a meeting in what he thought was a normal day. Leaving a wife,4 sons, grandchildren, daughter in laws, his parents, lots and lots of friends. Not one of them got a chance to say goodbye or how much he meant to them, thank him for what he had done for them. We need to bury the hatchet, not hold grudges, let go of the anger, forgive each other because we never know as we go about our normal day if its our last or the last of a loved one. Even thought you don't know Robert Duncan personally I would like to ask you to do something in his memory. Pass an act of kindness on to someone. Give someone looking sad a smile. Buy a coffee and sandwich for a homeless person. Go to a nursing home and ask to visit someone that doesn't have anyone visiting them. At church give a visitor a hug and welcome. You get the idea. Robert always helped others, even strangers and I can't think of a better way to honor his memory then to pass his kindness on.
