The topic of the “power of one” has been on my mind recently. I have seen more than one face book post by an individual who was able to make a difference, simply by taking one step to help one person. Let’s face it, our country is in desperate need (socially and spiritually) of random acts of kindness. Such acts through the power of one, can make a world of difference.
I’ve mentioned before that my goal is (an ongoing goal I might add!) to get my garage organized. My husband says I am determined to park the car in the garage while he says that garages are for storing stuff. I’ve made several trips to the Good Will and continue to do so. I have also gotten rid of things I’ve had forever that serve no real purpose anymore. I am noticing however, that more of the stuff is related to babies and toddlers. Of course I love every part of my life as a Grandma to babies and toddlers! And so, that brings me back to the “power of one.”
A former co-worker called me and told me that a friend of hers is a new mother of a three month old baby and the family did not have a washing machine. She told me the mother was washing all of their clothes by hand! Now I’ve seen the loads of wash my own daughter does almost daily with her 3 year old and 6 month old. So, my heart jumped when Tracy asked if I still had a washer in my garage that I wanted to donate. Bottom line, they are scheduled to pick it up today! Praise God! Now all I have to do is clean off the stuff that has been placed on top of the washing machine! (I think my husband is beginning to win this storage vs car game we are playing.) 🙂
So how about you? What is the one thing in your house or garage that you could give one person to make their day or life a little brighter? I suspect you will be able to bless at least one person or group of people through the “power of one.” Let’s each make a difference with one random act of kindness…pass it on!
