Can you believe that Spring is just around the corner? A year ago the world as we knew it changed. We have had to adapt to those things we cannot control. Acceptance is the key. That being said, it is not always easy. Sometimes we forget to take a moment to reach out to our friends, loved ones, and coworkers.

Here is our challenge for the week.

Some of us don't have family nearby, kids in the house, or pets. The past twelve months has been rather stressful. First, reach out to those in you circle/pod/cohort you may have missed. Next, when you see your neighbor, mail carrier, person delivering your groceries, your child's teacher, the waitperson taking your order on Takeout Tuesday take a moment to thank them. Maybe their service wasn't the best, but at home they may have much more happening then we are aware. Kindness heals. Put more kindness out in the world and soon enough, our day is better too. Project Kindness is on the way and will be here in April, but kindness can start any time.

As always, stay safe...
