Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day. ~Sally Koch

When we take advantage of the opportunities God gives us each day to encourage others, it not only blesses those in our life but our hearts as well. If you happen to have a special needs Mom in your midst, you have been given a unique opportunity. You have the ability to build her up in a BIG way with some simple Random Acts of Kindness.

Moms of children with special needs (of any type) often feel low, overwhelmed, tired out and misunderstood.

I want to challenge you to step into her life with a few thoughtful acts or kind words. You have the power to encourage her to press on during the toughest of times! I have been on both sides of the coin. I know these moms are often overlooked by others and they also may struggle to ask for help.

Pick one of these little Random Acts of Kindness for special needs moms. YOU can make a huge impact – do all 30 and I can’t begin to tell you how life changing it could be for her!
