#ThankfulActs Challenge: Drive Kindly

We're approaching a big travel weekend.  Many people will be driving and/or flying in the modern-day equivalent of "over the river and through the woods" on their way to Grandma's house.

How fortunate we are to be able to travel so far, so quickly, but how easily we can take transportation for granted.  We can become frustrated with heavy traffic, delays, and mistakes of other drivers. Today's #ThankfulActs challenge is to be kind to other travelers. Whether you are traveling to another state, or just driving around your own neighborhood, be kind.  Let someone in as he is trying to change lanes.  Smile at the parents of that crying baby on the plane. Refrain from honking in anger at the crazy driver.  (Of course, honk if honking will help avoid an accident--just keep the anger out of it.)

How will you participate in today's challenge?

  1. Road rage is a scary thing and there is way too much of it. When I see someone driving to slow or changing lanes at the last minute I try and give them a break - maybe they are lost. I will go out of my way to let someone in and I really appreciate a wave when I do it!
