Let a Senior Go Ahead in Line

Holiday shopping? Let a senior go ahead of you in the checkout line.

Finished this kind act? Log it!

Does waiting in line drive you crazy? Well, we’re asking you to wait just a little bit longer this holiday season. Because after all, patience is a virtue.

This shopping season, let a senior go ahead of you in line. Why? Because it’s nice and you can spread just a little bit of kindness by letting someone go ahead of you.

Here’s how you can pass the minutes while you’re giving someone the gift of time:

  1. Catch up on your to-do list.

  2. Get “in-the-moment” and be mindful about how you’re feeling.

  3. Think of more ways you can help others during the holiday season.

I’ve loved being with the Seniors I’ve chatted with during this act of kindness. It’s allowed me to spark up conversation. Receive wisdom. Receive and give smiles. Be intentional in my thoughts. Show my 15 year old how to be serving and patient!!! Looking forward to continue this experiences. Even when I meet the goal!!

My wife and I “adopted” a senior for Christmas from Aging Solutions. We purchased items from our senior’s wish list and delivered them in a nice Christmas bag to the organization.

Crowded stores. Long lines. Some people just thanks, smile, but don’t want to take cuts. Training from school days I suppose. However I was finally successful.

I feel the best giving of time is to spend time with those who are lonely and need someone to talk to! I try to do this wherever I go, whether it be in the store, church or on the street! Time is precious, so share yours!!

I helped out a you teen ager that was with his friends while ordering food and asked him what he wanted and he relpyed that he didn’t have any money. So I reached in my wallet and gave the teen aged $5 and said here you go now you can eat. I said to repay me back do this same kindness to some one else when they are in need. Some one did the is for me and my family and I returned the repay. Total strangers do have kind hearts. I found this rewarding.

There Are many seniors in our community. I help seniors every day and I see how hard it is for them to shop! It’s hard for me to shop when it’s so busy! I’d like to let them in front of me because if they have a problem I see it and I can help!

I sent an early Christmas card to my cousin in the nursing home. Also I went to visit a widow today. And I did let someone go ahead of Me at the dollar store. They were younger than I but they had an arm full.

On vacation and let a senior get in line ahead of me for the drink machine. She had never encountered a machine quite like this one, so got her soft drinks for her. Feels good to help someone else.

I just called my 81 year old Mom and really spent time talking about how good the Lord has been to us. We reminisced about old times and had many whole hearted chuckles. I am so thankful that I called because not only did Mom enjoy our quality time together, I enjoyed it even more❤️
