Something so rare it shocks you when it happens these days. Sometimes, even if true kindness occurs you almost want to believe there’s a motive behind it. Why do we do this?
Mark Twain says, “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”.
We’ve been so fortunate to experience true authentic kindness in the past week from someone we met virtually who we didn’t know previously. This act of kindness might seem simple, but it’s felt so deeply. They bought and brought us dinner so that we didn’t have to cook or run out for food. This included driving through a severe thunderstorm to deliver it to us! With a newborn and constant sleep deprivation, we were grateful for warm and delicious food. As an added bonus, it was Italian food!
That night, with our appetites satisfied and our hearts full, we were reminded that there are still great people among us that put kindness front and center.
Adam Lindsey Gordon says,
“Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own”.
As we head into a new week, we hope you find true kindness by either helping with others who need it or by giving grace and the courage to be kind to yourself. You never know, you could help change someone’s entire outlook including your own.
Eleanor says, have great week!
