Be Nice to a Stranger Day

Just a thought...

How about if we make Saturday, January 12th, Be Nice to a Stranger Day?

It doesn't have to be a big deal. You don't have to spend any money. You don't even need to take a lot of time. It could be something as simple as returning a grocery cart to the store or placing it in the designated area for somebody that has kids in the car, or is older or just because you want to be nice.

Maybe you know of somebody that is lonely and could use a visit or a phone call. Maybe you could send a greeting card in the mail ... or greet your letter carrier with a treat of some kind. A kind word, a kind act...it's only one day. This coming Saturday. It doesn't even have to be a stranger. You can be nice to people you know, too. How about we just make it somebody that isn't expecting it. Let's just look forward to a weekend of being extra nice to people.

Who is up for the challenge?

I'm even giving you a few days to plan for it. You can buy your cards and get them in the mail to arrive on Saturday. You can plan to take somebody out to lunch or invite them over for dinner. You can watch the young children for a couple that doesn't get to go out often and can't afford a babysitter. Lots of ideas to share.

Saturday is the day!
Let's make people smile!
