Kindness

Sometimes it feels like everyone's in a hurry, consumed by themselves and just not very nice.  Little ugly comments, judgement, selfishness-- it's rotten.  But usually, when you look around there's a whole lot more goodness than crumminess.  This morning, a total stranger bought my latte.  The person in the car in front of me at Starbucks paid for me!  I was shocked and totally tickled.  A simple, sweet act of kindness that made my day! Today I'm thankful for kind, thoughtful people.

This picture has nothing to do with kindness but I like the memory!  She loaded up this bin with stuffed animals and called it her boat.  Then she read her current favorite book "10 Red Apples" to them over and over.  Maybe this does have something to do with kindness....just looking at this picture makes me happy, and being happy makes me kinder!

Since this is my own little blog and if you read it you know me and this comes as no surprise to you, and you know that even if you don't agree with me my intention is not to offend you.......I'm also incredibly thankful that Barack Obama is the President!
