Do you have time to write a note today? I met someone who told me that once a week she sits at her desk and asks herself, “Who could use a note this week?” And then she writes one to someone who could use a dose of kindness.

In the frenzy to stay on top of things most of us find it difficult to find the time to write a note, no less figure out who could use some cheering up. But think how many spirits we’d lift if we all took the time this week to write one note to one person to let them know they’re not alone; that we’re thinking of them and wishing some sunshine their way. Can you find the time to do it? I’m going to do it right now.

"Wanted to see if I have been accepted into the loss of a child yet. No is the answer to that. I guess my feelings don't matter for them."
