The Kindness Chronicles

Well, it's the first Sunday of March and time to share The Kindness Chronicles.  I always tend to hold doors open for people, so I forget that that is certainly an act of kindness.  I'm especially aware of opening doors for elderly, mom's with strollers, etc., but I'll hold the door for anyone who is coming behind me.  It's just one of those small things that I appreciate and like to pass on.

Well, last week I decided to buy a coffee for a stranger who was behind me at the Tim Horton's drive thru and that was really fun.  I think that the best part about doing this sort of this is that the person doesn't get a chance to say thank you.  My hope is that maybe they will 'pay it forward' some day, knowing how they felt in having it done for them.

I'd love to hear what you've been doing to bring a smile to someone's face.  Thanks for visiting :o)


  1. I have been trying to "choose the high road" meaning that when there is a chance to gripe or complain about someone, I choose NOT to do so. They will never know it, but its good for me to practice self-control. Complaining and griping, etc. only spirals down and gets ugly. I'm trying to think on what is good, honest, true, right, just, ... I'm not always doing it but I'm trying.

    1. Wonderful Susan. It is sometimes easier said than done, but a good thing for all of us to try more regularly. I recently saw a great quote about just that.
      Thanks for leaving a comment. That in itself is an act of kindness and I really appreciate it!
