Make Their Day!

Word cloud of kindness words.

How many individuals grace your day with their help and service? Maybe it starts with a bus driver, a crossing guard, or a barista. By midday, you may have crossed paths with dozens of helpers. The security at your office building, the mall, or at the bank. An administrative person at work or at the kids’ school. The sales clerks, the custodians, maintenance workers, or the grounds crew.

Too often, we forget to make eye contact and to extend ourselves. This week, change your tune by celebrating Random Acts of Kindess. We call it serving the servant. Not only will these kind gestures make someone else’s day, they will make yours, too!

Bring some Heavenly Magic to the helpers who touch your life. Here’s how:

Combine graham crackers with butter and press in to bottom of pan.
Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumb mixture.
Sprinkle crushed Heath bar pieces evenly, followed by the chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts.
