It’s week 6 of the Kindness Club.
Thank you to all of you who have been reading and joining in even if you are not posting or commenting.
Last week’s Kindness Club prompt was to visit an elderly person who needs the company. Like I wrote on Sunday a short visit is better than no visit. Any time you can give to visit a lonely elderly person is appreciated by them.
So please do continue to make it a habit of taking at least 10 or 15 minutes a week and visiting someone elderly who need the company. Even a phone call is better than no contact.
This week’s prompt is to be a courteous driver and/or pedestrian.
Here are some ideas of courteous behavior. Please feel free to add others.
- Let a car merge into your lane. You do know it really makes almost no difference in time to let a car merge into your lane.
- Remember to signal before changing lanes and to signal enough time in advance.
- Give pedestrians the right of way. (You can even practice your week 2 Kindness Club prompt and smile at them as they walk by.)
- Don’t speed through changing lights. (Or any lights.) You know what, don’t speed at all.
- Signal your appreciation to drivers who have stopped for you. (Yes, they need to stop, but you can still be appreciative. And like drivers, you can practice your week 2 prompt of smiling.)
- When walking on sidewalk with others leave room for people to pass you.
- When talking to a number of people on a sidewalk, leave room for people to pass you.
- If you have a stroller, try not to block others from passing.
So go on everyone and be courteous drivers and pedestrians. Make each day nicer for someone else by being kind to them and being courteous.
Write a blog post about your experiences and come back on Sunday to link up your posts. (I will leave the McLinky up from Sunday till Sunday.)
If anyone who is not a blogger wants to join in please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put your story up on my blog.
