Today, as we mark ‘World Kindness Day 2015,’
we have yet another poignant reminder
of the need to help this world
turn much more gently.
As the news reports
show the latest, tragic acts of terrorism,
our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France.
When times are difficult,
it always helps me to intentionally focus my thoughts
blessings and kindness.
For most of us, kindness is a lifestyle!
The smallest things we do
can bring us great joy ~
and spread joy at the same time.
Today I spent many blissful hours in my paper crafting studio,
adding the finishing touches to our Thanksgiving cards
and making a few special Kindness cards.
I can’t wait to mail them!
My paper crafting friends might be curious about the supplies I used:
Canson XL watercolor paper
Sentiment: Honey Bee Stamps
Versamark ink, Ranger Sea Foam White embossing powder
Ranger Distress inks: picked raspberry, mustard seed, peacock feathers
Sequins: Neat and Tangled
Recollections 110lb white cardstock
Listening to: Great ‘Oldies’ on the radio
Feeling: So blessed!
Have you been the recipient of any small acts of kindness this week?
Have you shared handmade kindness?
I’ll begin… and hope you will jump in to share.
We can focus on small
acts of Kindness
to help ‘make this world turn more gently.’
While we were out of town this week,
our kind neighbor raked all of our leaves as a sweet surprise!
This afternoon, I surprised him with
a handmade ‘So very Grateful’ bookmark,
freshly baked cookies
(shaped like maple leaves and oak leaves, of course!)
and hot cocoa.
Now it’s your turn to share…
Have a wonderful November weekend, everyone!
Thank you for stopping to visit today!
