Have you surprised someone with a small kindness that you didn’t think was a big deal but meant the world to someone else?
I love random acts of kindness. I’m a kind person by nature so I give away kindness as much as possible. Whether it’s a kind word, a benevolent act or a selfless attitude, it doesn’t really matter. All that matters is that it helps. I don’t do it for recognition or praise; I do it to help others.
But there are times when the tables are turned and I’m blessed with a small act of kindness. It totally surprised me and while it didn’t seem like a big deal to MR N, it meant the world to me.
As many of you know, MR N is a poet (read his love poems in our book, Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year) and while I’m used to getting poems from him, last night he surprised me with a special poem. It touched me deeply and made me smile. I mean, what woman doesn’t love her beloved spelling out his/her love on paper? 🙂
Today, let’s be kindness detectives and help each other out. If you see a situation where kindness is needed, act! It can be teeny or large, it doesn’t matter the size as long as its real and true.
