Sweets for the sweet

Lollipops have been satisfying the sweet tooth for a very long time.  My great aunt used to make them in molds - many different shapes and flavors.  You can buy whole bags of them in stores for just a few bucks.  Why do I mention this?  Today is National Lollipop Day and what a kind thing it would be to purchase a few bags and hand them out to family, friends, perhaps even co-workers.  Not only is this a kind thing, but it's pretty sweet too!

The counter says a lot of folks visit this blog.  Of course we don't know if you actually read the words here.  Perhaps a bit of feedback would help.  Leave a comment below.  Say a kind word or two.  Encourage us with a story of kindness.  We'd really love to hear from you!

I admire kind people

Rabbi and Jewish theologian and philosopher Abraham Joshua Heschel once said "When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people as I grow older, I admire kind people." You KNOW I agree with that!

From Tom Giaquinto

In his book Be A Good Human, Tom Giaquinto says this very important thing:  "We change the world a little each day with our kindness."

Inspiration from Michelangelo

"Danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark." - Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni

Give me a scoop

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. You know the saying, right?  Well did you know that today is National Ice Cream Day?  Some of the country’s best ice cream joints are actually giving away some of those delicious icy desserts.  What could be more kind?  Maybe this would be a great day to also treat some of your friends.

What an incredible gift

Making people happy, being kind to one another - this is such an incredible gift to the world.  When we make others feel good, we make ourselves feel good, but it doesn't stop there.  Those around us are inspired.  Those who hear of our kind acts and the happiness they bring, are generally inspired as well.  One little act of kindness can circle the globe and bring kindness to the entire planet.
