Snowmen Show Kindness

The ones who are hardest to love are usually the ones who need it the most. -- Dan Millman

Good News of the Day:
There is an elderly man who lives up the street from us. He has no one to shovel his driveway. he is a bit of a miser so most people aren't so inclined to help. One day, I don't know who did it, but someone used the snow on his driveway to make a whole bunch of smiling and waving snowmen on his lawn. As my son and I were walking by, I could hear him grumbling. "What's the problem?" I asked. He complained that someone had trespassed on his lawn and made a bunch of snowmen. My son, not knowing what 'trespass' meant, assumed it was a good thing. "Wow, sir, that's the biggest bestest present I've ever seen!" Innocently, he turned to me and asked, "Could we have someone 'trespass' on our lawn too?"...

Be The Change:
Be kind to someone who may need it today.


  1. Out of the mouths of babes, Kat, enjoyed this .

  2. Another great story. Sometimes, there are folks that just need a bit of attention to see life from a different view. It is the little things that can really make a difference. The man may not have shown it at the time, but I feel sure he was pleased someone took the time to say a kind word to him.

  3. That story is just terrific. Sometimes it takes the innoncence of a child to make a great point loud and clear - no sinical thoughts behind. Brilliant story.


Looking forward to seeing how you made a difference today!
