Moments of Kindness

While sitting around the table with my family and our close friends, my mom popped a question to the whole table: “What is an act of kindness you have seen recently?” It’s her typical move, asking the family to reflect on their experiences. My sisters then made their typical eye rolls and sighs, while I teased them, as I typically do. For this post, I thought I would share some of the examples of kindness, and hope that you reflect on the kindnesses around you.

  • My dad remembered a moment when he was looking for a cab, and was waiting with another person. The cab arrived, and they entered first. But, after asking where my Dad was going, said that they could ride together.
  • While shoveling the driveway and sidewalks, a neighbor shoveled a good portion of my friend’s sidewalks, a gift they also offer to their other elderly neighbors.
  • My sister has a friend who is very caring for a mutual friend with a difficult home life. She offers advice and worries about her frequently, getting advice from others to help the beleaguered person.

Hopefully these have brightened your day! And take a moment to notice the kindness around you. If it’s hard to spot, make some of your own.

Possibly the most cheerful of candies. Give one to a friend!
