9 things for 09/09/09 - EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival

The phrase "September 11th" has a totally different meaning than it did a few of years ago. It used to be just a date on the calendar, but now it's an historical event to remember. As we come to another anniversary of that day in 2001, it is a good time to also look forward and realize that the world is changed one person at a time. That means I need to do something positive if I want the world to change.

Since it is 09/09/09 - kind of a fun date! - I am sharing 9 simple things that can make the world a better place.

  1. Smile - it is a great gift and it costs nothing! (Who is having more fun? The ticklor or the ticklee??? In any case, I bet it made you smile!)
  2. Help a neighbor.
  3. Share - next time you go to the grocery store, buy a little extra for your local food bank.
  4. Invite someone to lunch *winks* eggs will do just fine!
  5. Visit someone who is homebound.
  6. Surprise someone with an unexpected kindness.
  7. Love someone enough to put their needs first.
  8. Pray.
  9. Stop and enjoy the sunset. Pause and put things into perspective - and into the hands of the Author of Creation.
