Inexpensive Acts of Love/Kindness

People question what they can do to make a difference; something that does not cost a lot. Here are some ideas that do not cost much other than a little time.

FOR OTHERS

Being there for another during times of grief. This may include hugging another when a person needs it or holding another’s hand to comfort the individual when words are not enough. It may be listening to another who just needs someone to hold a space for them so they can sort things out.

Helping another at the grocery store; such as one in a wheelchair, one struggling to get an item or asking your older neighbor if he or she needs anything from the store. Humming a tune as you walk can also lighten another’s day.

Offering to feed one’s pet for a few days in an emergency.

These are only a few ways to express your love/kindness toward others. There are so many more. As we come together through the internet and via other means, perhaps we can also look around us in our daily lives and make a difference to a stranger, friend or neighbor. They may be part of your community in the future.

Wishing you love in all that you do, Mary
