Spilt Kindness

26 days of kindness extended
Joyce Rupp reminds us that "...the main purpose of a cup is to have its contents given away." On this snowy December 15th, it’s an extra day of kindness to honor the survivors, teachers, first responders, friends and family of Newtown, CT. Though this is the season of giving, we often forget that specifically with first responders and teachers, their job is to be of service, to aid. This extra day is to share an act of kindness in honor of the survivors, teachers, friends and family of Newton, CT; to fill their cups that may still be empty. It’s just one extra day. 

This unknown quote states it best. “So when your cup is full, spill some ‘kindness’ into the wind; for in a thousand songs, it will return to you. And when your cup is empty, just lift it up and sing; and it will fill itself slowly with the ‘kindness’ that each of you spills into the wind.”

Here is the FB and event page to post your thoughtful acts of kindness on this extra day of 26 days of kindness. Ashley Petersen, the champion behind these 26 days of kindness intends to keep this page open for those who want to share their experiences and continue spilling their cup of kindness onto these pages.

One note regarding the above unknown quote – where you see the word ‘kindness’, it was actually ‘wine’ but kindness is more appropriate so I made that one adjustment to this unknown author’s quote.

And to Chris, Jen & Mattie, my family connection to Newtown, CT - my personal reason for taking part in these 26 days of kindness.
