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