Kindness Gift

Kindness becomes its own motive. We are made kind by becoming kind.

Eric Hoffer (1902-1983), American Social Writer

Staffordshire Mush Cup with Saucer, Rowland & Marsellus Co., 1860's

Kindness seems to be the word of the week for me. It has popped up - in conversation, during a book discussion, and in the news; significantly enough as to not be a coincidence. So what does it mean to Be Kind? Here is my short list:

Being charitable

Being virtuous

Being pleasant

Being considerate

Being tender

There is so much more to Being Kind.... As psychologists tell us real kindness changes people.

What does Being Kind mean to you?

I have never known about mush cups, but I now know, thanks to you. So..not giant tea cups at all heh!! So interesting.

Kindness, in my words...caring for another without prejudice, with dignity, love and respect in one's heart.

I think kindness means making time to listen. Modern day life can get so busy that we forget how important that is!
