One Million Acts of Kindness

Photobucket

Edna: Margie, I think you're going to like this story I found in the newspaper today. This man travels around the country in a bus with his little dog, encouraging people to do one million acts of kindness in their lifetime. Isn't that a wonderful idea?

Margie: How sweet! I love Bogart. I bet he's a great companion. Maybe they'll come through Jericho one day. Edna, does this mean you want to do a kind act for someone?

Edna: Despite what you think, Margie, I am a kind soul. And even though this is One Million Acts of Kindness week, I try to do something kind every day, all the year round. Even if it's something small like waving to the shut-in next door when I go out to get the mail, I've found that even the smallest act of kindness can transform someone's day.

But I suppose you had something more specific in mind?

Margie: Edna, I'd like to watch you do a kind act tomorrow. Can't say that's something I've ever seen.

Edna: Margie, the kindest thing I can do right this moment is not to say what I'm really thinking.

How about being so kind as to tell me what is in that tea?

I think that was a very kind act you just did Edna. I am sure Margie would not have liked to hear what you were thinking.

You two are hilarious. And, something as innocent as a smile can go a long way in being kind to someone.

Is this million acts of kindness meant for ONE person to do? Or a million people?

You girls are crazy!

Edna: I do believe the concept is that one person can do one million acts of kindness during the span of their lifetime if they put their mind to it. I imagine you'd have to count even the tiniest little kindnesses too, otherwise you'd best hope you live a good long time to do all one million before you die! ;)
