K for Kindness.

Kindness is the act or state of being kind.
A blind person being helped across the road by a sighted person
We should be kind to people without expecting anything in return. Everyone should make an effort to be kind to  people and even animals so as to make a small little difference in their lives.
I sometimes see a blind person being led by a sighted person on the road and it really makes me  glad.
When I see anybody offering a seat in the bus to an elderly person or a woman in advanced stage of pregnancy it makes me sing. When I  help anyone in their time of need I really feel blessed by the Gods for being given a chance to do good to a human being.
I am also  kind to all the old persons I meet when I go to The Home for the aged because most of them there have been abandoned by their children or relatives.
I have taught my daughter to be kind too and I really love it when she is so kind to the dogs and cats when we visit my Mum in Goa.
My prayer today is that we should  be blessed with kindness in our lives always.
With lots of love,

  5. I wish more people would show kindness to others. It isn't a sign of weakness.

  6. I have a friend who is blind, and I am often her eyes, and we laugh sometimes, because, I miss a door or wherever we are headed, and we joke "The blind leading the blind." She is so independent that I just forget she is blind. I suppose people who see us together wonder just which one of us is really blind?

    I agree there can never be to much kindness in the world. Great K word and I loved your commentary on kindness.

  7. MORE KINDNESS, please!

    We too have taught our children to bekkind - and I'm so glad that now they are grown they ARE kind, and hate injustice. Good for them!
