The Kindness Tree – July

No act of kindness, no matter however small, is ever wasted

Today in memory of a special lady I was asked to wear blue and perform a random act of kindness. I shall do this of course. Kindness spreads and even after her passing Lorabeth will be remembered through kindness. That is some legacy. I didn’t know Lorabeth but I know she filled up the lives of those who knew her with light and love and I am happy to spread a little of that light and love in her name.

It got me thinking how kindness is like a tree; it’s branches spread wide, its leaves fall and are carried by the wind, it blossoms, shelters and lives eternally as it’s seeds grow and flourish.

Let us all be part of the kindness tree and do what we can. people often hide the kindness that they do but I say every so often it needs shouting about  and celebrating. We need to inspire each other to be kinder.

The Kindness tree

Today I am taking a box of coffee, tea and biscuits to our local shelter. I am sending a funny book to a sad friend. I am going to litter pick by our local canal and give a gift to SightSavers.

You can make someone smile, help someone see, help feed someone or make an environment better. Under the banner of kindness you can change worlds.

I will share this kindness tree once a month. If you have anything you would like to add to it please let me know. We all need to know and feel and hear and experience that the world is full of kindness.

God bless Lorabeth and God bless you, Chet.

Love lives on.

    I really love the idea of the kindness tree. Sometimes I think people are put off random acts of kindness as they feel they have to be grand gestures when in fact some supplies to a local shelter, a book in the post etc can really brighten someone’s day.

    Today I’m taking a box of things for our local charity shop and passing some outgrown children’s clothes to a friend.

    What a wonderful analogy, I love the idea of The Kindness Tree. Is that a book? If not then it should be.
