Acts of kindness start at home

From Leah Speer’s BabyCenter blog post published January 4, 2013

Ann Curry’s “26 acts of kindness” didn’t end with 2012. It wasn’t something to do for only a couple of weeks to commemorate the victims of Sandy Hook tragedy. It wasn’t just another reason to pay it forward during the season of giving.  After all, #26Acts came with the pledge that we’d never forget.

In this new year, let us challenge one another to indeed never forget and carry the 26 (rather 27) acts of kindness with us each and every day.

Here are 13 simple ways to carry the #26Acts into 2013 and beyond


1  –  Show your appreciation. If your spouse folds the laundry or washes the dishes after dinner, say “thank you” and really mean it. Don’t take it for granted. Show some affection and be obvious about your true appreciation.

2  –  Be present. You’re sitting in the family room checking Facebook and your little one tugs on you asking you to read her favorite book again. Set aside your iPad and invite her on your lap. Enjoy every moment of that experience, being right there in that moment with her.

3  –  Say “I love you”. This should be said at least once a day, to everyone in your family. Even if you know they know it, it’s a lovely thing to be told and it can’t be said too often
