Day 74, March 15

Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change.

Bob Kerrey
When I found this quote, I knew I had to use it.  A few days ago, I read a story online of a young woman in a bridal shop overhearing a father and his daughter, also looking for a bridal dress, lamenting over the fact that they couldn't afford the dress she wanted.
The first woman arranged to pay for the dress.  Isn't that a beautiful act?
Most of us can't afford such a grand act, but we can afford other acts.  We can write a card to a friend.  We can listen to a friend who is needs to talk.  We can cry with a friend who is grieving.  We can read a book to a child.
Joy for today:  changing our world one kindness at a time.

  1. What a neat story about the wedding dress but you're right, our gestures don't have to be that grand. Thanks for the reminder.
