I've been thinking about kindness, and how many times during my life an unexpected word or act of kindness gave me a whole new perspective. The thought that someone would put themselves out for me just to help, and not because they hoped to get something out of it, was such a gift. Even though sometimes it was a very small thing, it was always meaningful because it was a form of caring, and in depressing times, caring was what I had little of. Kindness is giving, not asking. Kindness made me kind.


  1. I keep reminding myself of the great quote from Kurt Vonnegut..."You've got to be KIND!"It really is as simple as that to make the world that much better!:) Thank you for your wisdom!

  2. Thanks for your comment! The older I get the more obvious it becomes to me that kindness is actually just treating others the way you'd like to be treated. It's so simple we all miss it.
