As we approach the holiday season, we are reminded of all the things God has given to us. One great way to thank Him is by showing kindness to our family and friends, of course, but also to those whom we might normally overlook. There are hundreds of ideas online for ways to show small gestures of kindness to others, and we've created a list of seven simple, fun ideas that don't require a great deal of effort, cash or time. Nearly anyone can find time to do one of these actions, and hopefully as you lift the heart of another, your heart will be lifted, too.
