Today is National Do Something Nice Day. We don't know why it's on October 5th or who came up with the idea. I think that was nice of them to come up with this little distraction at the beginning of October.

It's a lot like National Random Acts of Kindness Day that's celebrated on February 17th.

I read once that real generosity is when you do something nice for someone who will never find out. They also say that if you do something nice for someone that it helps us to feel less anxious.

I think we've all been feeling anxious since Sunday's shooting. It can be a feeling that just won't go away, like a cold that just lingers. I've been praying about it and I know that I have to just give it over. It also helps to look at my kids and thank God for the gift.

So what's the next step? Maybe you are looking for ways to help those affected by the shooting in Las Vegas but not sure what to do. Here's a suggestion:  98.1 the Hawk has joined with other radio stations to help raise money for the families of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.

I do find it ironic that part of National Do Something Nice Day is to do something nice without telling anyone what you did. Then they want you to use the  #DoSomethingNiceDay and post it on social media.

I guess that's just the world we live in today. So what are you going to do today?
