More Kindnesses

Monday Meditation – More Kindnesses - 2/20/2023


A year ago I introduced you to a special project called “The Magic of Kindness.” It was a year-long effort for people to purposefully do at least one kind thing during each week for a year, and then, if they wish, to share about it on Facebook.


I believe over 60 people officially were a part of this effort. It’s hard to believe that a whole year has gone by! If you participated with me in this project, thank you. I am happy to report that I succeeded in my effort to do kindnesses each week for the year, and I was probably just as blessed as those recipients of my kindnesses.


It was not hard at all to find ways to be kind to people. Opportunities are everywhere, if you just look. Many of the people who participated in the project did some pretty amazing things for others – it was encouraging to me just to read about them. And I got some fantastic ideas about ways I could be kind.


People who participated in the project visited others, sent cards or flowers, made phone calls, left gifts or money, did repairs, paid for meals, gave rides, held open doors and just said “thank you.” And this was just the tip of the iceberg. Just wonderful!


Although the Magic of Kindness project is now officially over, I plan to continue doing kind things for others. It actually will be a wonderful thing to continue to do during Lent! I hope that you, too, will bless others with kindnesses this week and all throughout Lent. You may be surprised at how doing kind things brightens your day!


Have a blessed Monday!
