“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Mark Twain
Just three days after Valentine’s Day, I find it fitting to have a day that celebrates “random acts of kindess”! How easy is it to be kind to our family and friends? How easy is it to show love and affection to our significant other on a day that celebrates love. I love the quote above from Mark Twain, kindness truly is universal and can be recognized by everyone.
A few months ago, I was at a drive-through getting coffee on my lunch break. I handed my gift card to the cashier as she smiled and said that the person in front of me payed for my beverage! I did not expect that but decided to keep it going and bless the person behind me.
There are so many simple ways to show kindness to others. It can be a word of encouragement, a friendly smile, a helping hand, even just buying a stranger their coffee or paying for their gas!
May you be the giver and the receiver of “kind acts” on this National Random Acts of Kindness Day!
