04 Feb 365 Days and Acts of Love: Day 1 ~ Helping My Neighbor With Her Homework
I found myself today, all day continual thinking about my 365 days of love commitment. I found myself in the hunt mode, looking for opportunities to do acts of love when I was out today. Day one and amazed at how it has effected my thinking an attitude towards others and life. Unfortunately I was not out much so opportunities where not in abundance.
Then the opportunity presented its self, I was able to help my neighbors 10 year old daughter with her homework, she was struggling with her math and in need of help so I decided I’d help her when she asked me to. After working with her for about an hour she was able to do the work, understood how to do it, and was very happy. She went from down on herself, thinking she was not very smart, to confident and believing she could do the work.
Her parent are not the teaching type, seem to have little time of patience to her to help her with her home work. So I feel that I had shown her love, had done an act of love in helping her with her work. And by helping build her belief in herself and abilities by taking the time to reassure her that she was smart and capable of learning.
