Picturing Kindness

posted by Sharon October 9, 2012 13 Comments

Have you noticed that kindness is a natural byproduct of love? What does kindness look like? I recently saw a picture of kindness when Maddie and her brothers received two baby bunnies. The kids promptly named them Marshmallow and Blackie (aka Batman). Love for these little furballs comes so readily to Maddie.

You can see kindness in small, affectionate gestures . . .

In providing for their needs — a bowl of water, some fresh vegetables, soft bedding . . .

In holding and cuddling these young ones, newly separated from their mother . . .

In her whispers of reassurance that she will watch over them now . . .

Acts of kindness not only benefit the receivers but they also bring joy to the giver. See her smile?

We can decide to be on the lookout for opportunities to show little kindnesses. Someone will soon need the proverbial cup of cold water, a welcoming place to confide a fear or frustration, words of reassurance that a new situation will work out well.

How about you? Have you gone out of your way to show kindness to someone lately? Has someone boosted your spirit with a kind word? Share your picture of kindness with us!
