The kindness of flowersPosted: March 29, 2012
The flower of kindness will grow. Maybe not now, but it will some day. And in kind that kindness will flow, for kindness grows in this way.
~ Robert Alan
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all treated each other with kindness?
I’m not talking (writing) about you guys. I have yet to see an unkind word from any of my visitors. Even those who have been less than tactful or come across harsh (no, it wasn’t you!) have not deliberately said anything hurtful. I am grateful for your kindnesses that come with your visits, comments, likes, and link love. So don’t worry. I’m not talking about you.
A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses.
~ Chinese Proverb
A couple of friends have recently had to deal with unkind words. One friend is here in my blog neighborhood. Another is out in my world neighborhood. Words can be so powerfully helpful, and so powerfully harmful.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
~ George Washington Carver
This post is for those of you who have recently had to deal with unkind words and deeds. I want to offer you some flowers of kindness. It’s not much, but I hope it helps to bring a little softness, light, color, and cheer into your life.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
~ Mother Teresa
Thank you for visiting the Bogs today. If you get a chance, spread a little kindness, wherever, whenever, as often as you can.
