Simply Kind Tuesdays - The Simple Things

Life has been crazy lately, for all of us. We get so busy, it's hard to squeeze in a moment to sit down, let alone a grand gesture of kindness.

You know, it really doesn't have to be much... a smile, an opened door, a pat on the back...or a kind word. It's wonderful to orchestrate big, elaborate surprises or group efforts to benefit another, but those opportunities present themselves less frequently than the small, quiet moments that can mean the most. I believe that giving our time to another, being completely mindful and present, is one of the greatest gifts.

Claudia's "Simply Kind Tuesdays" helps me to slow down, quiet my mind and reflect on any kind acts I witnessed over the last week, and reminds me to find opportunities, no matter how small, to show kindness to another.

Thank you, Claudia, for this weekly gift and reminder. Thanks to the other participants for inspiring me with their kindness posts. :)

I hope you'll be inspired by the SKT participants, too!


  1. I am always amazed at how the smallest thing can reorient my life. In my travels, I find that people are so overwhelmed right now. I think you're absolutely right here that small, kind make the difference.

    Great post!

  2. I hate maths. I'm not even good at it.

    But tonight--I struggled through two hours of math with 9 kiddos.
    OMG...my brain is fried!
    But is homework done for tomorrow and do they 'get it'...YES!!!! Woooohooooooo!!!!!!
