One kind word can warm three winter months
Kindness – it feels as if we are in short supply. Soaking in all we hear from the news it is hard to imagine that kindness could be found in any corner of this country.
We have to make/tell our own stories.
I’m no psychologist, but it only makes sense to have a positive outlook on life to be observant and responsive to others in need, whether it’s a relatively minor deed or a significant commitment. So be kind to yourself so you can be kind to others.
The studies show that generosity is contagious. We are all touched when we see someone help another person. It encourages us also to do something altruistic.
That fact should energize us to be generous to others in any situation. And by others, I mean anyone, any race, nationality, or religion. After all, a founding principle of our country is that all people are created equal. Though injustices dot our history into the present, that entreaty has nevertheless stood the test of time. We, too, must make it last. We do so by being kind.
