I spent some time with a widowed neighbor.

I sent a “daily blessing” that I get in my email every day, to a co-worker who needed encouragement.

I stopped what I was doing to look a child in the eye and listened while she was talking to me even though I was busy.

I spoke to a friend today about Jesus. He expressed interest but said that maybe someday it will “click” for him. I am praying for him.

I noticed a colleague on crutches today struggling up the front walk while carrying a purse and a lunch bag, so I walked out to meet her, and then carried her bags all the way to her work room for her.

I let a neighbour know they had left the car lights on when they parked in their driveway.

A friend at work shared that he needed a small piece of wood for a hobby – I brought something for him the next day and he was very thankful.

I empowered a student to have a role of more authority, and he felt supported and encouraged.

When I was about 14 years old I was attending my home church in Parry Sound when the service ended everyone was leaving. I was waiting for the family I was living with to finish what they were doing when I noticed a woman sitting alone in the pews. Something inside me told me to go to this woman and just sit with her, so I did. I sat with her and I spoke with her. She was having a hard time and we sat, we prayed, we hugged and we cried together. Every Sunday after that we would make a point to see one another and speak and hug as we did that day. We are still in contact to this day and although we aren’t close to one another anymore, we send each other virtual hugs and continue to pray for one another and support each other from afar. I had the blessing to be invited to her wedding a few years after we met and it was the most wonderful and joyous time I had ever had.

Walking out for work today, I noticed that someone’s garbage had been run over and was littered all over the middle of the street. I went in, grabbed a pair of gloves and a garbage bag, and went to clean up the mess on the street, even though it wasn’t my mess to clean up.

I helped my neighbour shovel snow at the bottom of their driveway.
