Mother-Teresa

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”

As we celebrate the 104th birthday of Mother Teresa, it’s appropriate to broadcast a program that focuses on the wisdom of kindness.  Hosts Henna Hundal and Asya Gonzalez with reporter Ryan Sim serve up simple ways to show you care such as

·  Compliment three people.

·  Write a hand-written note.

·  Say good morning to everyone.

·  Pick up litter.

·  Place uplifting notes in library books, on restroom mirrors, on someone’s locker, or on their computer screen.

·  Dedicate 24 hours to spreading positivity on social media.

·  Hold up inspiring signs during rush hour.

·  Leave a generous tip.

·  Send flowers to a friend.

.Cook dinner for your family.

.Help a friend move or clean.

.Volunteer at a convalescent hospital

.Pamper yourself!

Read uplifting, inspiring books, a short chapter at a time such as Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference, or Be the Star You Are!® for TEENS.
