A week of kindness… why only a week?
Life is all about kindness.
I love you.
What? But you don’t even know me…
As the song says:
In the end… only kindness matters.
Why is it in the end that only kindness matters.
Shouldn’t it be every moment of every day that kindness matters?
I have so many blessings in my life, I lose count.
Many people never realize how blessed they are. Some of us are lucky enough to feel blessed and be grateful… for everything.
I love Tommy Edison and his positive attitude. Tommy was born blind and he looks at the bright side, counts his blessings, not his short comings… because our challenges are our blessings.
I have a friend who has a wooden leg. He was born without his lower leg and I admire him. He is a wonderful person inside and out and has never used the “handicap” card. He works. He gives of himself and he cares about people… and therefore, he shines a light on the world, where ever he goes.
I have a friend who is very sick right now. She is so sick she can barely take care of herself… and she has an eleven year old son to take care of. She may not know it when she is going through such pain and suffering… but she is blessed.
Every obstacle that we face is a blessing. Every challenge is a lesson. When someone faces a challenge and I see a way to help, I feel obligated and privileged to do whatever I can to show kindness… because that is all that matters.
This is a wonderful example of kindness:
We can all do something to be kind to someone. It has been a wonderful week of sharing kindnesses that we observe, kindnesses that we ourselves show toward others. How blessed to be among 200+ other people all focusing on kindness.
Kindness is the blessing of a lifetime. This week, I have felt very spiritual, very close to God, very close to loved ones who have passed and very close to my family and friends that are still with us. I feel a special bond with the world and for that I am grateful…
Thank you my friends in MKMMA and thank you Davene and Mark.
Only Kindness Matters!
