Day 2341: “Kids Caught Doing Good”

“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” – Amelia Earhart

 

It’s 11 :  43 AM on day 2341 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast read John 13:34 and learn a new word –Definitions for whiffler 1. a person who frequently shifts opinions, attitudes, interests, etc. 2. a person who is vacillating or evasive in an argument. (politician could be a synonym for this word LOL 🙂  )

 

A few days ago I watched “Kids Caught Doing Good” it touched me to the core of my being. Watch “Kids Caught Doing Good” below:

 

Day 1311: Society and its focus on bad behaviours

Society has everything backwards – that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 12  : 12 PM on day 1311 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray,   brush my teeth, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast,  read Psalm 2, publish my Disability of the Day feature,  promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – I can’t seem to get off 58% I just have to be patient and keep praying I guess – practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles,  stretch my hamstrings and continue promoting my campaign – still no luck as yet.

 

Yesterday I was watching a reality TV star being interviewed and I swear I could feel my IQ dropping we as a society seem to be paying more attention to people who do bad things than we do to the people who do good things and as a result young kids think the way to get attention is to act out and be destructive I think if we focused on people doing good things in the world and somehow made it cool to be smart, generous and funny kids would realize that they don’t need to act out to get attention. Do you sometimes feel like you live in a twilight zone where everything is the opposite of how it should be?

Day 1310: My Brother, a Panhandler and Pepsi

Kids don’t do as you say they do as you do– that’s what I keep realizing.

 

It’s 1  : 00 PM on day 1310 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to pray,   brush my teeth, read Psalm 1,  feed myself egg with bread for breakfast,  publish my Disability of the Day feature,  promote my Eradicate AIDS campaign – still on 58% hopefully I will be able to make a donation of my own soon – practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles and  stretch my hamstrings.

 

A few days ago my sister and I were in the car with our dad and he told us that one day our brother saw a thirsty panhandler through the car window and asked for permission to give him the bottle of Pepsi that was in the car when I heard that my heart was filled with pride because that’s the sort of thing I would do. Are you setting a good example for the kids in your life?

Day 1195: Kids connected to technology and disconnected from people

Kids are losing their ability to interact socially– that’s what I realized yesterday.

 

It’s 12  : 29 PM on day 1195 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  brush my teeth, pray, read 1 Chronicles 28, publish my Disability of the Day feature,    feed myself  boiled egg and bran flakes for breakfast and listen to music. 

 

Yesterday my brother’s friend came over for a sleep over I thought they would spend every minute together playing so imagine my surprise when I heard that one was watching something on the laptop while the other was playing Xbox 360 it scares me to think that kids today define spending time together as being in the same room at the same time. Are the kids in your life connected to technology and disconnected from people?

Day 958

Kids do what you do – that’s what I keep learning 🙂

It’s  1  : 42 PM on day 958 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, pray, read Numbers 11, publish my Disability of the Day feature, publish my  Kid of the Week feature, go to church – I liked the sermon the reverend talked about how we sometimes hinder God by being so set in our ways –    feed myself Bran Flakes for breakfast, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, practice typing with both hands and make sandwiches as part of Virginia’s Sandwich Run with our housekeeper’s help.

Today my brother walked into the dining room just as our housekeeper and I were about done making sandwiches and said without any prompting from anybody I want to do one I was so proud I felt like I was teaching him to serve others through my actions. Do you try and teach the kids in your life through your words or your actions?
