Welcome to We Care Wednesdays. Each Wednesday we want to talk about things the bother us no matter how big or small. Plus, we want to challenge everyone to do a little RAK (random act of kindness) during the upcoming week. We will be giving a suggestion for something simple to do. What we would really like is for you to be part of this and to give us suggestions, too.
One thing that can get on my nerves while driving is people that think they need to pull right up on your bumper at a stop light. I feel like these people are so close to me that they can read the tag on the back of my shirt. And yes, I have just admitted to the entire Internet that I sometimes do not pay attention in the morning and I walk out of the house with my shirt tag showing. What I don’t understand it do people not know that it is a safety risk to get that close to the car in front of you. I have seen way too many accidents where there are cars sandwiched in the middle of a multi-car pile up because everyone was pulled up right behind each other.
Now let’s move on to our RAK of the week. This week I want to talk about leaving a little note for someone. Take a post-it note or small piece of paper and write a little something on it. Some things you might write down could be “You are loved” or “God loves you. ” You could do this for your family or leave the note somewhere in public. I had an experience several weeks ago at the market where I was standing at the deli counter trying to decide on what to get for dinner when someone walked by and said “God loves you.” I turned around but didn’t see anyone else there so they must have been talking to me. It gave me a wonderful feeling to hear that for no reason.
