The Art Of Being Kind
But don't be fooled: she has a tremendous gift. It's the gift of being kind. No matter where we go, who we see, what we are doing, she is kind. She notices things about everyone (and I mean EVERYone) we meet and has something kind and uplifting to say:
"I like your skirt."
"Oh, your nails are so pretty!"
"I like your haircut."
"How old is your baby? He's so cute!"
She goes on her merry way, spreading a bit of cheer to all we meet. It can be in the grocery store, a flea market, a garage sale or church: she notices, is kind and takes a moment to be present with that person in the most charitable of ways.
What a gift.
