Have you ever been having a difficult day, and a small moment of kindness lifted your spirits?
Kindness and patience are powerful gifts for us to share. They’re free, and they go far in helping ease someone’s worries, temper their anger or even boost their energy.
For two years, health care professionals across the country have been fighting on the frontlines of the pandemic. While we’ve made great strides in terms of preventing and treating severe illness from COVID-19, we still have a way to go.
As we continue making our way through this difficult time, each of us faces challenges at work or at home related to COVID-19. Whether you’re a teacher, delivery driver, parent, nurse, emergency worker, retiree, retail worker, etc., all of us are simply doing our best.
With the current surge in hospital patients, this has been the most exhausting part of the pandemic for health care workers. We ask that you please share with them the gifts of patience and kindness. This will mean so much to them.
Helping others will help you feel better, too. And remember, an act of kindness – even a small one – can have ripple effects that make the world a happier place for all of us.
