JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 352 :: christmas kindness

20 Dec

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

As I checked out at the grocery store tonight I was reminded about the importance of celebration. Not because of my bananas or honey or gluten-free bread. But because the checker asked me if I had a good day.

“Oh, um…” I found myself muttering. “Yes, I think so.”

She then said, “Me too! My grandmother turned 91 today and I called to wish her a happy birthday.”

“Wow,” I replied. “That is a good day. Is your grandmother still physically well?”

I wasn’t sure how to ask if her grandmother was healthy at ninety-one years of age.

“Yes, she still works. Both my grandparents do!” She cheerfully said. “My grandmother always says it is important to stay busy.”

Indeed. I think that’s good advice. Especially in this busy season of hustle and bustle and holiday cheer.

To stay young, stay busy.

How kind… and what a gift!
From a ninety-one-year-old birthday girl!
(And she should know.)

More tomorrow…
