It's Wishcasting Wednesday so the gorgeous soul Jamie Ridler is inviting us to cast our wishes into the universe and support others' wishes. Today Jamie asks, "What gifts do you wish to share?"
I wish to share kindness and encouragement. I believe that small things like smiling at someone, saying hello, asking how they are and really listening to the answer can make a big impact on their day.
I have been the recipient of kind acts in the past few weeks because of our new baby's arrival. A couple of friends have offered to pick things up at the store for us. We haven't taken them up on these generous offers, but the fact that they asked warms my heart.
A couple nights ago there was a knock on our door. A couple that we are friends with dropped off a giant salad, a tray of vodka rigatoni, garlic bread, and homemade banana bread and sponge cake. The woman had been cooking all afternoon so that we wouldn't have to. She said she knows how hard it can be to cook with a baby keeping us busy.
I'm lucky to know such kind people. I want to share kindness and encouragement with others. Simple gifts of paying attention to others and pitching in where possible... those are the gifts worth giving.
