Today, I was reminded of the power of kindness. A wonderful couple staying here this weekend unexpectedly presented me a beautiful orchid as a thank you for an enjoyable stay. I was completely blown away and sincerely touched by this gesture.
It made me realize that the power of kindness is amazing. I decided to search through my 21 page word document saved on my computer to find a couple quotes about kindness that I like…here’s what I came up with…
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
~James Matthew Barrie
Sometimes someone says something really small, and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart.
Oh, and here’s my dining room…. or at least the start of it. Currently there is nothing on the walls…I would like to get a new area rug…and add a sofa table under the window (even though I did order one and they somehow forgot to include the screws)…and recover the chair cushion. In time. These things take time.
