Kindness

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. Mother Teresa

I have reprinted the story you are about to read as a simple yet profound example of how easy, powerful and impactful an act of kindness may be.

Once, many years ago, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and was scheduled for a mastectomy. That morning I attended a college class in which the husband of a good friend was also a student. Most mornings we said hello to one another and that was about it – he would sit with his guy friends, and I usually sat alone. When he entered class that morning, he came and sat next to me. He never mentioned my mom; never talked about the situation at all…he just sat next to me and chatted a bit. That was the day I learned that sometimes the kindest act is just to BE there…and I always remember this as one of the most touching acts of kindness I’ve ever received.

Who can you BE there for today and be kind to? What random act of kindness will you give to someone in need today that will change their lives and give them hope?

My prayer for you today is that you will be able to answer that question.
