A Little Giving goes a Long Way

The other morning upon waking I was greeted by a sweet little act of beauty and love.   Here is what I saw as I opened the front window blinds in the house: 

The Grandchildren of the couple who has been staying here stopped by in the evening, when no one was around, and created this beautiful street canvas.  My heart melted when I saw it, and it got me thinking.  This act was completely random and with the intention to brighten peoples' day.  Objective was met, in my opinion.

What small act or gesture can you do today to affect someone else's life in a positive way?  I am going to help a friend move.  Okay this is a not such a small task, though I like giving.  This of course includes giving to myself too!  The lesson for me here is in becoming a better receiver.  They really are simply two sides of the same coin.

Live, love, laugh, and bask in the rainbow sunshine of life....even when you feel like you are soaking in some grey clouds!
