Kindness Matters

I wanted to quickly share a lesson I am so grateful to have experienced this week. It seems to me that the kinder we are to those around us, the more kindness we notice in those around us. It is so simple, but it had a most profound effect on me.


"Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind."
--Henry James, to his nephew

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.

So true! We've been the beneficiaries of many acts of kindness, especially from strangers. There are a lot of good people out there!

Something so small and simple can make a big difference! We also have the saying "Kindness Matters" on a plaque in our home... it's a constant reminder for us daily. Thanks for sharing!

Can I get a pillow that says, "Be excellent to each other?" :)

Love that. Did you make that cute pillow? I might try stitching that on all my kids foreheads...do you think it will work?
