Giving you a mulligan, do over, second chance, whatever.
On Tuesday, you might have heard that it was the National Day of Service…in honor of 9-11. But, maybe you didn’t have a chance to serve. I admit, I didn’t….kids had soccer, and then dentist appointments…
You can always serve. It doesn’t have to be some major event that you have to cancel everything on your calendar for. If that’s the case, you will never get it done.
I was reminded of that by one of my Facebook friends, Jan. She posted this on 9-11.
“I wanted to share with you and your listeners a small act of kindness
that has touched my heart deeply. My son will be leaving AGAIN for
Afghanistan in November. This is a post he volunteered for much to
this mother's regret. When he told me that he was going back, my heart
broke in two. And on the anniversary of 9-11 my heart WAs even more
tender toward those who have served. Then, I got an email from a
friend of mine from church. Her son served last year in Afghanistan so
she knows….She is a teacher and she told me her class is making

could have meant more to this mother's heart. We should never under
estimate the small acts of kindness…”
