KINDNESS

What was the first thing you thought of when you read the title? KINDNESS.

Did you think of a kind deed you’ve done for someone?

Did someone's name pop into your head that you've wanted to help?

Or, did you remember a special kindness shown to you?

Why I'm bringing up this subject is because this was the theme at my Toastmasters group last week. The theme was chosen after one of our members lost his home to the Texas wildfires. I thought it apropos.

Whenever someone was introduced at the meeting their introduction had something to do with the topic. It might be their kindness shown to others or received in their own life. Throughout the morning I was reminded of the benefits of benevolence.

How each one of us can lend a helping hand to a person in need. How we can pay it forward with an act of compassion, thoughtfulness, and/or generosity each and every day. How we can show another person the love of Christ in simple deeds we do.

KINDNESS

Let’s give it a try. Someone will be blessed when you do.

Love ya,
nettie

PS: Check back next month - more to come on the subject. :)

I always associate kindness with gentleness. Kindness interrupts a chaotic, harsh world to infuse calm gentleness that touches the heart. Thanks for this great post! Love ya.
