A gem from a friend ... kindness

Title: Ripple (2005)
Media: Fabric and Acrylic
Size: 20cm x 20cm

I have this fabulous friend who sends me these little gems from time to time ...

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. -Lawrence G. Lovasik

I agree that no act of kindness is ever wasted - although sometimes you hear people say "why did did I bother" - you have to have faith that there will be benefits - either for that person - or with the ripple effect that kindness has - at very least it has helped yourself - because you know that you have done the right thing - and being able to live with yourself is far more important than anything else.

Let us all practice kindness to each other, every day, in the things we say and do - it doesn't have to be big - sometimes it just needs to be giving that person a bit more latitude and understanding during rough times ....

Remember being kind to another is being kind to ourselves.
