How I Do Kindness

As I have mentioned in previous articles, my brothers and I grew up in a very positive environment. We witnessed various acts of kindness when we were very young, from our parents helping others, to other people helping our family. That characteristic has stayed with us to this day and has been passed on to our children and grandchildren.

I am always on the lookout to give an act of kindness when it is fitting. I’m not afraid of stepping out to help someone in trouble, or to say something nice to someone, or to give anonymously. I feel good when I am kind to people, but I don’t make a scene about it, because that isn’t the point.

What would your act of kindness to me be? CHOCOLATE…… and MORE CHOCOLATE!
