A Few of My Favorite Things: Kindness
Today's Blogging A to Z Challenge, with my theme of "A Few of My Favorite Things", is all about the letter "K".
As I get older it seems as if kindness and kind people have fallen to the wayside. Personally, I think this world could do with more kindness; Kindness towards people and kindness towards animals!
Why do people find it so hard to be kind? Why is it so hard for someone to choose between something as simple as smiling or frowning? Or why is it so easy for someone to abuse an animal or human? Why is is so easy for someone to just walk on by when they see someone or something injured or dying? The list goes on and on. People have to make a decision to choose the path of kindness.
I have two children, a girl (age 23) and a boy (age 19). As they were growing up I would always tell them..."There are few kind people left in this world. Be one of them!" I hope and pray they take that little bit of advice to heart.
