Thankful Thursday

"You can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!" Anne Frank 

There have been times when I felt that life was too hard......and to feel the kindness from someone is to breathe again.  Kindness.....it goes a long way......makes a huge difference.    In my darkest moments someone's kindness gave me hope. In my everyday moments someone's kindness makes me happy. Kind people make the world a softer more gentle place. I'm grateful for.....  

-my 15 year old. She has the most gentle kind attitude not just with her family but everyone. 
-blogger buddies....you guys are the absolute best. Many of you have taken time to email me....reach out.....say hi....your smiles through your posts and emails always light up life. 
-A fellow writer - we just met and she's not only advertising my book in her cafe but is helping critique the book I'm working on. Her kindness made my day.
-the cashier in a store where I shop. That lady always smiles....is always friendly......and always kind. Even if I'm grumpy when I go in, I always feel great when I leave. 
-The best is His amazing kindness that cut through my anger and hurt and  taught me how to give the gift of kindness to myself and others.

I couldn't agree more about this. There is nothing any more encouraging during my day (and walk) than a simple expression of kindness.

It's just not that hard to do and gives so much.

Being thankful is the best way to use and appreciate God's gifts!

Hey, some possible news - I might have a publisher for my book. My author coach is working out the details as we speak...

I feel the same way about you....your kindness at some of my lowest moments made my heart so happy. Thanks for the encouragement to always be kind, even to the grumpy people. Having a hard time believing you could ever be grumpy. (smile)

Blessings,

Yes, just the littlest gestures of kindness can often be remembered through a lifetime. And it may be the only kindness that person receives, we never know. Nowadays so many people are rude, in a rush, and self -centered.

Where would we be without kindness.

I wish everyone had kindness in their hearts. This world would be a happier place to be. I imagine heaven being that way.

"You is kind. You is smart. You is important." From the movie "The Help". We should all say that to the people we love everyday. It would be good for us and for them.

Kindeness is a true gift to the giver and the recipient. Xo
