Project Ellen DeGeneres – BELIEVE with Me – Day Fourteen!…Spreading Kindness Around the Globe and being on Ellen’s show too!
Kind acts not only live forever in the heart, but also are effective teaching tools. One of the coolest things I have experienced since the birth of my granddaughter Hailey more than seven years ago is that whenever an animal or human needs assistance or a prayer, she happens to be with me. I affectionately call her my little “magic magnet,” for I know there is always a great purpose behind each one of these divinely guided spiritual encounters.
Hailey and I were in the car and had just turned onto the road, leaving one of her favorite parks. We’d been traveling for less than a minute when I noticed a painted turtle up ahead, trying desperately to cross to the other side of the road as cars drove over it between their tires.
I announced, “Hailey, we have a turtle to save! Are you ready?”
Hailey said in return, “Yes, Grandma. Save him!”
I pulled safely off the road and rolled down the window so Hailey could watch a good deed in action (and give me direction if needed from her car seat). I got out and, as I stood by the side of the road, cars continued rolling over the turtle as it tried to cross. I was dumbfounded as to why people wouldn’t stop or slow down for one minute so I could pick up the creature and move it.
So I did what any kindergarten crossing guard would do. I raised my hand at the next car that approached and said, “Stop!” The driver halted the moment I raised my hand. I stooped down, picked up the painted turtle, and brought him or her (I’m not sure which—I didn’t pay much attention in science class) to its intended destination.
I heard Hailey yell from the window. “We saved him, Grandma!”
After I got back in the car Hailey said again, “We saved that turtle, didn’t we, Grandma.”
I said, “Absolutely!”
A few minutes later, we were back on the highway, heading east, when we came upon an illuminated billboard. These billboards change every twenty seconds or so, beaming a new digital advertisement. As we approached, the billboard changed, and up popped an ad for the Minnesota Zoo. The image that flashed across it was a larger-than-life photo of a painted turtle.
I shouted, “Hailey, look, that turtle is thanking us for saving its life!”
What are the chances that we would save a painted turtle and then moments later pass by a billboard that just happens to change to a picture of a painted turtle the minute we drive by it? I’m not a betting woman. I don’t even like casinos, but I bet the odds are about a ba-jillion to one. This, my friends, is what a spiritual sign from our Angels and Spirit Guides looks like. I believe they were saying, “Thank you, ladies, for taking the time to save one of God’s creatures.”
People learn about kindness in many different ways. Some of us learn by demonstration and others by getting involved. However you learn is right for you; what’s important is to be open to the learning process so you can grow your spirit.
“There is no heart that beats in a human being or earthly creature that does not respond positively to love and kindness. It is simple kindness that paves the way for love to flow in freely and land upon a weary heart.”
Here’s our Ellen DeGeneres kindness project we can do together for today:
The things that make my heart sing are teaching people that simplicity doesn’t have to be HARD. Peace is simple. Joy is simple. Love is simple. Truth is simple.
So, here is my simple TRUTH. I really, really, really, really want to be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and talk about spreading kindness, peace, joy, love and truth across the planet. Ellen’s show is the perfect platform to get this message out to the world. I love her humor. I love the JOY she so freely gives unconditionally to others. I love her energy. And, I love the light she shines from her heart like a beacon for all to see.
Will you please help me make my Project Ellen DeGeneres dream a reality?
Do you know someone famous, or even Ellen DeGeneres herself and are able to make that contact connection for me? ( I am open to the infinite possibilities, synchronicities, steps, and ideas you may have to assist me in attaining this dream of being on her show to talk about spreading Peace, Joy, Love, Truth and Kindness around the globe!)
I encourage you to comment on this blog and forward this blog post to friends and family. The more souls that connect with this vision the sooner we spread kindness around the globe with our friend Ellen 🙂
