Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Day Twelve of Thanks

Giving Thanks Post Day Twelve

I am thankful for the kindness of others.
When people say please and thank you
Or hold the door open for you
Kind words spoken
or an unexpected smile from a stranger
a surprise in the mail
a prayer 
when someone says you look nice today
or I like your new hairdo
a cheery toot or a wave from a passing car
a returned wallet that you thought was lost forever
These are just some of those kindnesses.
A kind word or action to a stranger
might not be much
but it can brighten someones day
and put a smile on their face. : )
Do a kindness for someone today.

  1. Thank you for this lovely reminder about kindness. It's a free gift we can everyone.

  2. Such a good reminder! We never know what a difference it makes when we are kind to someone.

  3. Hello, yes an act of kindness goes a long way. Great advice and post. Enjoy your day!

  4. I know a popular thing is people paying for the fast food orders of people behind them at the drive thru. My sister-in-law had someone do that for her

  5. A great reminder. Thank you. Sometimes even the simpliest thing can be a big blessing for someone else. Have a blessed day.

  6. A simple act of kindness can change a person's day, week or life. A good reminder Karen.

  7. Aw, such great news of kindnesses given and received.

  8. I love acts of kindness...both doing them and always blessed by others acts towards me. It is the unexpected smiles that make a gloomy day better. :)

    Have a happy night...and enjoy that ice cream. :) I had a little tonight also.

  9. I completely agree. Kind actions can have far reaching benefits and feel nice for the giver and the receiver. I am thankful to have been the recipient of your kindness through the years. A true blessing.

  10. Oh-0h...did something go awry with the new camera?

    I like that secular Christmas song that says "It's not the things you do at Christmastime, but the simple things you do all year through."

  11. I like the random acts of kindness - the world has so much hatred and violence, and it is up to each of us to be kind whenever we can.
