Find a penny, pick it up, all day long, you’ll have good luck!

#3: Walk your shopping cart back to the front of the store.

Everyone hates taking back the shopping cart, even the worker you leave it outside for.

#4: Think before you speak.

Biting your tongue in frustrating situations could spare more feelings than you think.

#5: Adopt a pet from the local animal shelter.

You’ll gain a fury friend and give the little guy a home.

Hospitals can be scary, especially when you're a kid. Try to brighten their day with these small distractions.

Everyone knows how great moms are. We just forget to show our appreciation for them sometimes.
