Recently on a difficult day, I quickly replied back to an email. I clicked on 'reply all' instead of 'reply to sender.' It was a one sentence general reply about a bike ride this summer that all on the email list were receiving. Some time later, I received a really mean email back from someone telling me to learn how to email. I sat there and thought really? I didn't reply but deleted the message. I felt sad for a minute and was reminded the difference an act of meanness or a little kindness can make in our day.
Each day there is kindness shown. Today I seemed to be on quite the roll of craziness. I arrived at the office and didn't have my keys. The cab driver had already dropped me off and I had an appointment arriving soon. The attorney next door invited me to come into his office while I made the necessary calls. How kind. I walked over to Arctic Circle and a kind gentleman opened the door for me and warned me of a slippery patch on the sidewalk. How kind. I left my cell phone at the office. Steve returned to the office and picked it up for me. How kind. I received a note in the mail from my aunt and uncle. How kind. I need to pass it on.
Practice Kindness. If we simply stop each day to show a single act of kindness, if our thoughtful act inspires someone else to do the same, if it multiplies across our city, state and nation, the result will be a worldwide revolution of the heart.
