Looking on the bright side

I remember when I was a teenager, first hearing the phrase “random acts of kindness.” It propelled me through so many moments with family, friends and strangers. I had a label for my sometimes actions and it felt so good! Lately I’ve been feeling the “first world problem” vibe. Oh wow, how this label helps to put things in perspective. It’s crazy how many of my ‘problems’ are not related to basic needs. While I do a little bit to help those less fortunate than me, I know there is so much more to give. What do you do to give to your local or our global community? When do you remember that we are living in the lucky country? How do you teach your kids about the ways that we are blessed?
