Recently on our Facebook page, we highlighted an article which was published by McKinley Corbley on August 23, 2019. The title of the article was “Hearts Are Melting Over Waiter’s Compassion Towards 91-Year-old Dining Alone”. This great feel good article spoke of a waiter who went out of his way to pay special attention to an elderly patron. This post engaged a good percentage of our followers, and it was about a topic that in today’s climate I don’t feel you can talk enough about. ACTS OF KINDNESS.
When we make funeral arrangements with families, I always give those at the arrangement conference an “Act of Kindness Log”. This is a simple sheet to record acts of kindness that individuals may do during the time frame of when someone passes away, and through the days ahead. Surprisingly enough those simple sheets are a wonderful tool, in which we get constant positive feedback. Oftentimes the little acts of kindness, whether it be an errand run, a meal provided or task completed, can be the most meaningful. Acts of kindness don’t need to be extravagant but can have lasting impressions.
