Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear, and the blind can see. –Mark Twain. Kindness is a quality demonstrating warmth, consideration, generous and friendliness. Today more than ever kindness is priceless. In truth no act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted. Every kindness act creates a ripple with no real end that can change our life even the world. The root of kindness is about treating every human being like you want to be treated and helping those in need. Kindness in thinking and giving is a part of true beauty in a human. Kindness is in our power. In fact the spirit of kindness give no thought of any rewards or no ulterior motives. Hence, if everyone spoke and act with kindness misunderstandings, mistrust, and hostility would dissolve. I can imagine how different the world would be…there would be no bullying for children like my M or anyone with a different ability. Kindness has a healing effect on our soul. It’s a divine gift because it blesses one receiving and one giving. We can never show kindness too soon, life is unpredictable we never know how soon it will be too late. Kindness starts at home. Today M surprised me while walking to our home. He stopped and picked up a leaf. M handed me the leaf and said “thank you”. I took it and replied “thank you”. M displayed the most beautiful smile. I realized in his own way he was showing kindness. Later this evening M sat next to me on the sofa and offered me a half eaten cracker…he said “thank you” and I replied “thank you”. Yes, I ate the half eaten kindness cracker and M beautifully smiled. M is teaching me that kindness in thinking and giving equals love…never too young to learn kindness.
