Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Practicing Kindness
The blessings I'd like to share with you today is this: Random Acts of Kindness. I'm fortunate to frequently receive these acts of kindness, and I'm blessed to pay them forward.
I feel some people are just naturally kind, and others have to work at it, but practicing is good for everyone. If we would perform merely ONE act of kindness per day, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, the world would be a much happier place.
Giving praise to another and speaking your appreciation also fall into this category of Random Acts of Kindness. Our words of praise and gratitude are powerful and impact others more than we often know.
An example of a Random Act of Kindness action is what Cyber Celt does. I read her post about keeping grocery bags in her car and giving them out to needy strangers when she felt called to do so. Kindness is no doubt second nature to her.
