Sunday Show and Tell

"I firmly believe in small gestures:
pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers,
over tip, smile
or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it,
pay compliments,
chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk
and throw it back to him,
try to be larger than you are - particularly when it’s difficult.
 People do notice, people appreciate.
I appreciate it when it’s done to me.
Small gestures can be an effort,
or actually go against our grain
(I’m not a big one for paying compliments),
but the irony is that almost every time you make them,
 you feel better about yourself.
 For a moment life suddenly feels lighter,
a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."
-Jonathan Carroll

Kindness is such a beautiful, magical thing.
I hope you love these words as much as I do.  I couldn't agree with them more. 
I hope you've had a spectacular Sunday so far....

This is all things amazing. I couldn't agree more! I sometimes think that the handful of craptastic people in this world have us forgetting that for the most part, people are good! Kindness goes a LONG way!
