Change Your World

I was walking downtown yesterday and saw this woman giving change to this homeless man. It reminded me of this qoute: "Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world." Annie Lennox I hope that your week starts off great.

Hi Randy, we sing a church hymn that goes like this: "Have I done any good in the world today, Have I helped anyone in need; Have I cheered up the sad or made someone feel glad, if not I have failed indeed."
Great picture!

One act of kindness can explode into many acts of kindness. Kudos to this woman and thank you for a fine picture and post! May you have a delightful week!

A few coins given, a friendly and kind word offered, I believe both parties were winners!

That is a beautiful quote. If only everyone in the world would do this, what a wonderful place we would live in.

It's a hard call. Sometimes you don't know if you will be helping them or hurting them...some just go buy alcohol instead of food. I wish I could just not worry about the outcome but I do know that everyone needs a helping hand occasionally.

Hear hear! Randy, it costs nothing to be kind!

It's so sad to see someone in this situation...
I don't like giving money, but I always carry a fruit or a cracker in my bag for them.

Great post - and a great way to "change," even if it's just a little bit of change.

I should do that a little more. Unfortunately, you kind of become immune to it in London.
