        Hi Guys and Dolls,

        Its the most wonderful time of the year!!! Tis the season for random acts of kindness. I see it so much more at holiday time than any other time of the year. We have witnessed it right here at LCB!

        It seems our hearts are more open and we tend to keep pent up expressions of kindness set free at holiday time. I see it everywhere. I was in the store the other day shopping when a clerk mentioned how she loved a scarf a customer had on.

        The customer said she purchased it on a trip when in Australia and thanked her. The customer left and 10 minutes later returned to the store. She walked up to the clerk and said....." i want you to have this". The clerk was taken back and lost for words. The customer wrapped it around her neck and said Merry Christmas and walked out.

        I was so touched by this!! I have to admit i show more random acts of kindness than any other time of year. How wonderful it would be if we could do that all year long.

        Do you show more acts of kindness at this time of year or see others that do?

        "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."

        Well, the "Good Acts" people commit usually happen more often now. But I am trying to break away from that..

        You see, it would be like being a jerk 6 days a week and making it up by being angelic 1 day a week.

        Be angelic (Or as much as you can) everyday...It's not totally possible to be such, but if you try, you do more good all year long then you could fit in 1 month.

        I'm always amazed how little some people DO care.
        Eample, yesterday, going through my building lobby, a lady had a stack of papers slip out her folder and scatter cross the lobby. She didn't notice and I chased her to let her know (no, it's no biggie on my part). What amazed me is that NOONE else did antyhing..they saw, watched, did nothing.
        Again, yesterday, on my way home from groceries, my trundle buggy hit a sidewalk dent, and my cart went @$$ over teakettle and me too, and all my bag of groceries spilledout. Noone looked back, noone stopped to help. Ugh, for me, it would be second nature, to help ANYone struggling

        Ohhhh 13 my love you are preaching to the choir now!! It astounds me at the number of people who do not care!! I could go on and on with a list of stories where people just walked right on by.

        I have often struggled to understand the mindset of a person like that. What is sadder is that when we do the humane thing we are considered "heros". I hardly think lending a hand to someone in need is being a hero.

        I would of helped ya with that ruff and tumble buddy.......thats a guarantee!

        heehee, ty.
        BTW.....funny note. People who rush into secenarios make good heroes, they also die earlier. People without a hero complex, while assessing the situation, live longer. Though, sadly, not sometimes the other party
        I've on more than one occassion run into a situation cuz I heard a scream, then was '''ooooooohhhh, crap, im gonna get my ass whupped', lol..but i wont change

        13, i will tell you a true story....i tell you this not as some kind of hero.....but part of being just plain human.

        I was out shopping one day in the summer. When i ran across an elderly man, obviously disoriented. He was approaching people asking them for directions to a street. I saw each person either walk away and ignore him....say they didn't know....or cross the street to avoid him.

        As i got closer to him, i could tell that this man was not of his senses. He began to walk aimlessly in desperation. I approached him and asked him if i could help. He said he was lost. I called 911 on my cell and waited with him til the police arrived. As we waited people passed by...shaking their heads. As if he was an annoyance on the street. I rememeber how angry i became. How callous and judgemental people were without knowing the circumstances.

        When the police arrived, they were happy to see the man. Apparently he had left the Seniors complex and his family was worried sick about him because he suffered from alzheimers.

        I am not kidding when i say not one single person would help this man. I would love to know there reasons for this.....because i just don't understand it.

        Though this time is a special time of year to get closer to the ones we love and to feel and show that cheery spirit, I am an all year'er!
        I will see something that reminds me of someone and I will buy it and give it to them just because.
        I will send a card in the mail to a friend just to say hi and let them know they are special to me.
        I stop and give money to the people with the signs, even if they are lying
        I have seen a couple of mothers' walking in the rain and I have stopped and given them rides even if it is completely out of my way.
        God has blessed me in so many ways anytime I can help, or put a smile on someones face or joy in their heart, I don't hesitate. It actually makes me feel good to see people smiling and happy and if I can play a part in that happiness, than all the better!

        I guess you can say I help because because of my horrible child hood. You see, I was the only Puerto Rican in a very small all White town growing up. And I was dirt poor. People hated me because I was poor and Puerto Rican. My father couldn't find a job because he was from New York City and Puerto Rican. My family grew tighter than my hubby's wallet.(Chuckle) We always helped someone if they needed it, like if someone was broke down on the side of the road or something. I would ask my father why he helped them when they wouldn't give him the time of day and he always said the same thing "Don't hate people because of their ignorance, try and show them they are wrong and you will be surprised how many people will change."

        When I was 17 my father had his first major heart attack, the whole community came to my house to help us. People came to mow the lawn, take my mother grocery shopping because she doesn't drive, take my father to his doctors appointments it was amazing.

        I always lived by my fathers wizdom, because I help anyone and everyone that I can because I truely believe god put me here on this earth to make a change, one smile at a time.

        Lori, you are special and I love you for life! And it's not about the money you gave me. It's about your heart and our several hours talk on the phone that allowed me to really connect with you.
        You are stuck with me forever :-)
