THE KINDNESS CREW (WC 224) By Michelle S. Kennedy
Christmastime is almost here. But Covid keeps the world in fear. Cancel this! And cancel that!
Put away your party hat.
Stay indoors and stay away. No one gathers Christmas Day…
Though the chaos swirls around, some caring folks can still be found. Several people start to pray. How to help, yet stay away?
Zoom calls help the world unite. A group is formed to make things right…
They call themselves: The Kindness Crew— to help a cause, each other too. One by one they do some good, social distanced as they should.
Everyone is helping out so no one has to go without.
Santa needs to wear a shield behind a mask, his face concealed.
Elves help reindeer pack the sleigh with P.P.E. and Lysol spray.
Volunteers from here and there make Christmas calls to show they care.
They mail out cards to those shut-in and phone a friend to make them grin. They stop the talk that’s causing strife. and donate blood to save a life.
Near and far, the love shines through. The Kindness Crew knows what to do!
Hope is spread from shore to shore, in six feet widths or maybe more. This Christmas lives within the heart. Not up close, but it’s a start!
Do your part and help out too.
The Kindness Crew is up to you.
