I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Today I’m thankful for Kindness
The best portion of a good man’s life; his little nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
As far as I’m concerned life is just too short to be anything but kind. There is not room in my life for negative thinking, anger or bitterness. When you’ve lived a full long life like mine, you come to realize the important things in life. It might be nice to be important, but it is much more important to be nice.
Kindness matters and makes such a difference. Being kind is the best way to live your life. When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world. Individually each of us has the incredible power to affect another person’s life - for the positive or negative. Everything we think, say, and do matters immensely.
We all have the opportunity to make someone’s day a little brighter. We always have the chance to choose kindness and compassion. One of the easiest ways to spread joy from one person to another is to show them kindness.
On my thankful list for today:
6553. for a whole month until Christmas
6554. for a warmer day to get the decorations out of the storage unit
6555. for the coming season of Advent, a time to prepare
Two words that say it all: Kindness matters
Don’t underestimate the value of being kind to others. One act of small kindness can release an enormous chain of positive events.
You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
