LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH LOVE, APPRECIATION AND KINDNESS
When my youngest son was just a toddler, he loved giving gifts to everyone around him.
He would take something as simple as a stone that he had found in the garden, carefully wrap it in toilette tissue, hand it to me with love in his eyes and I knew that rock was a treasure to him and yet, he was giving it to me.
He would find things that meant something to him and lovingly give it to others. Sometimes it was a weed from the yard, a dandelion, once it was a cricket and other times it was something from my own jewelry box.
Not a day would go by that he didn’t ‘give’ me something special.
When he was little older, he walked to the mall where they were giving away a gemstone to the first 100 customers, waited in line for an hour to get this gemstone to then proudly and with love, give it to me....wrapped in toilette tissue.
When people came to our house to visit, he would choose someone to receive his gift of kindness, always wrapped in the plentiful toilet paper. Never mind that these ‘gifts’ were often a trinket from my jewelry box. On occasion I would go to pick out a pair of earrings to wear and find only one left.
I didn’t mind. I understood him.
He loved people and he wanted them to feel as loved as he felt. He always wanted to make someone else’s day as bright and as happy as his was.
He is kind by nature.
When he went to school, he would share his lunch with a certain child that often came to school without one.
This would be okay except that when he turned 8 years old, he became an insulin dependent diabetic and needed his food to counteract his insulin. I was often called from work to the school. He would go into insulin shock because he didn’t eat all of his lunch so he could give some of it to the little boy who had none.
I realized that I had to make him two lunches because he was not
going to stop being kind to others.
I didn’t want to lose this loving and kind little boy who thought of others all the time even when it meant him suffering.
Being kind to others will never be wrong.
It’s a simple way to let others know that you care.
Kindness is showing others that you have a loving heart.
It shows others that they are important.
A kind heart makes you beautiful.
You will never regret being kind to others.
There is great power in even one little act of kindness.
It creates a boomerang effect.
One kind act will come back to you a hundred times.
Kindness will NEVER go out of style.
My son shone his light wherever he went with his kind and loving ways.
He loved Eyeore from ‘Winnie the Pooh.’
Eyeore said, “A little consideration, a little thought for others makes all the difference.”
Live your life with love, appreciation, tolerance and kindness.
Never underestimate the power of being kind to someone. That one act of kindness has the power to make a change in someone else’s life.
Lao Tze said, “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
