Encouragement · Sow Kind · SowKind Movement

Appreciation Goes a LONG Way!

This week, teachers and nurses were celebrated.

Both groups work tirelessly. Their work is often not seen nor celebrated. They don’t do it for the recognition or applause, but you and I know appreciate goes a long way.

The heart of the #sowkindmovement is to be a bright light of encouragement for others. It doesn’t cost us anything to sprinkle a little kindness. Why keep the power of kindness to ourselves? Kindness begets kindness, so the ripple of one decision is immeasurable.

Will you take a moment to encourage a teacher or a nurse? Share this post, tag them in the comments, or offer your own words crafted with kindness.

Either way, it only takes a minute to make someone’s day. √

Here are posts that you can use as idea igniters or share directly with teachers and nurses.

Thank you for enduring never-ending comments from others about “wishing” they had summers OFF. {cringe}

Happy Nurses WEek! (1)

Nurses,

You are keepers of the most intimate needs and emotions of those you serve.

You witness the miracle of life, and you hold the hand of those taking their last breath on earth.

You enter the greatest vulnerabilities we know. You become lighthouses for grieving families and friends to families of the chronically ill.

You encourage the weary.You comfort the heavyhearted. You are silent strength for patients.

Sometimes–you are the only friend and visitor a patient has. You dignify the loneliest and respect those often forgotten.

Thank you for pouring out your skill.Thank you for offering tenderness with skilled care.Thank you for working through this trying time.

You are seen. You are deeply appreciated.You are the unseen heroes.

THANK YOU!
