SIMPLE ACTS OF KINDNESS
Simple acts of concern and kindness are treasured gifts.
In my meditations this week I reflected on kindness. A flood of memories surfaced of a difficult and stressful time in my life. I remembered the emails and phone messages from friends, those I worked with and some whom I barely knew. Perhaps unknown to those who sent them they were each a gift of love, sustenance and encouragement. I was not alone!
These messengers could have chosen to be silent or respect my privacy but instead they chose to be a light bearer.
Only I could do the work needed to come through that period but that work was more bearable because of seemingly simple acts of kindness and concern.
It was a reminder that my life is shaped and formed by a generous circle of people. Surely the concern expressed through kindness is a marker of our spirit? I’m wondering what opportunity this day will offer for an act of kindness?
Be grateful for the kindness of another person
Be awake to opportunities to engage in a simple act of being kind
Notice how the spirituality of kindness expands your generous circle of connection.
