Fill Fall With Acts of Kindness

Good deeds don't appear by magic, we have the privilege of creating them. While planning fall festivities, please consider treating relatives, friends or strangers to random acts of kindness. 
(Why wait 'til Christmas?)

Did you know when you do a good deed, your brain releases a neurotransmitter that gives you a feeling of satisfaction? 
It seems we are hard-wired to do good.

Here are a few ideas:

Read a story with children. You might  enjoy dipping apple slices in melted caramel.
 


Bake cookies for Grandma and Grandpa.




Send treats to a missionary, soldier or others far from home.
