We've been talking up kindness all month long, and this weekend we recommend that all our awesome Southwest Michigan families go out and act on it. Pick one nice thing and do it.
It's amazing how fast that one little act takes off and comes back in ways you never expected; we received hugs, lollipops and helping hands yesterday while chalking positive messages in front of the movie theater in South Haven.
We've got plenty of other ways to fill your weekend too, of course.
