Kindness Matters – Be kind one to another.
My husband gave me a set of daily journals that track habits, gratitude, mood, and some other things. Then there’s a weekly recap with more questions. One of which is, “What are 3 kind things you did this week?” This question really made me stop and think.
Kindness means being considerate of others and that thought prompted me to ask my private Facebook group this question. “What would be some kind acts that you could do?” Here are some of their answers.
Visit someone in a nursing home
Take someone a meal
Listen to others
Send a card
I loved their answers and I realized these are all great ideas for random acts of kindness. These acts of kindness don’t need to be big. Even small acts can make a difference in someone’s day.
Earlier today as I was coming out of the grocery store, I passed a much older woman walking with a cane that had plastic flowers tied on it. She had on a yellow hat and her bright orange hair showed around the edges. I thought she was adorable and I just offered, “Good morning.” She stopped almost with tears in her eyes and said, “I’m so old and no one ever speaks to me.”
You’ve probably received a similar reaction to your own kindness.
While you may think of doing kind things for people outside your home, kindness does start at home. Be sure to show kindness to your spouse, kids, parents, and even… don’t forget to be kind to yourself.
A friend said to me that we do not talk about kindness anymore. Perhaps we don’t. And perhaps we don’t express kindness enough.
Even though my journal asks for only 3 kind acts every week, I want to challenge you, and myself, to search for something kind you can do every day.
Let me know about your kind experiences.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 ESV

Nice work, I really love it
This is awesome. The world does need more kindness!
In performing acts of kindness, we benefit ourselves. Doing good for others is medicine for the soul.
This really made me think. My wellness journey asks for one act of kindness a day and I’m trying hard to do so. Being kind is so important especially during these hard times
When I think of people who have supported me, it has been with small kind gestures and not large ones. Great post.
This is such a sweet post a great reminder. Sometimes we get stuck in our own routine. I have made a point when our in public to at least make eye contact with a smile at the very least and find that usually impacts people.
Great points! I often give random compliments to strangers while shopping or waiting in line. It really brightens their day. They often react as if no one compliments anyone anymore, which is said. It costs nothing to say or do something kind.
Such a beautiful and important post. Kindness is the greatest gift that we can give to another person! Thank you so much for sharing!
we need more kindness in this world
We try to do one random act of kindness a month
This will inspire
Awe I really love this! The story about the adorable lady who was in tears just to have someone talk to her made me really think. Kindness can go such a long way! Thank you for the reminder!
