Good morning, we sure are having a lot of visiting time on this AtoZ challenge, aren't we? I have coffee ready and fresh banana nut bread. Yum. It is a recipe I have never tried before, but will be the go to from now on. I don't know if you read the Mitford Series a few years ago by Jan Karon or not, but she later published a cook book with recipes from that series. My friend Linda A showed kindness to each of us in the Card Group and bought us the cook book. It is a good one. KINDNESS, something I am afraid is dwindling away. My young friend Chris, shows kindness to me by mowing and weed eating my yard, at a reasonable price.
So when I sit out here I see this.
(BTW, this was taken in early fall, last year, but you get my view)
My other young neighbor Steve, mows my field, scrapes my driveway and is always willing to do something for me. You read about my neighbors Jackie and Phil yesterday. Pastor D, the associate pastor at my church was so kind to Curtis, his 6&1/2 years in the NH. Always visiting him and treating him so sweetly, even when Curtis had no idea who he was.(It was an hour away) They are all kind.
Andrew is one of the kindest children ever. His teacher last year commented on his being kind.
Kindness is something we all need to show. I love it when I see someone being kind, don't you? Today I see people being rude, sometimes hurtful to people who are supposed to be their friends. I don't think we realize how our words hurt sometimes. If we would stop and think before we say things, kindness would soon become a habit. Today I am asking myself, am I kind? If so am I kind enough? Another friend of mine Lisa Crutchfield is so kind to me. She doesn't have to be, but she is. She is so generous and I love her, not because of her generosity but because of her kindness. She is so much younger than me, she doesn't have to give me the time of day, but she does. Always a hug and a smile.My blog fairy is so kind to me.We have never met, yet she shows me kindness. There are so many more who have and continue to show me kindness, I could never mention them all. Kindness comes in all shapes and sizes. Kindness is free! I challenge you today to be kind and to be aware of it. Be aware of being kind to others, make it a habit, like you have made a habit coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
