And so, today is World Kindness Day! Wishes here ...that we continue to spread kindness' to those we don't yet know very well or haven't yet met, by looking around the corner, in Raleigh.
I was heart warmed, today, by a member of 2 years, who has only been to visit with us once, due to her health issues. She texted to say "You haven't walked away as so may do , because it's busy world and you haven't lost sight of what it's really about...people. She continued, "To me, every day is a kindness day. I always try to remember that we live busy, sometimes frustrating lives, but it can be done with mindfulness, kindness and grace, no matter the circumstances."
Her situation is a special one, and I ask ladies to consider reaching out as her new friend. She continued, "It's people who make all the difference in my attitude about this situation (to keep going). I've always loved having people in my life to be with, and enjoy their company. Without people, there is nothing."
"I've always been an active person, running, skiing, aerobics, boating, tennis and it's all been taken away...it came to a screeching halt. Here I am in Raleigh where my grandchildren are, and trying to start a new life at 63. Easier said than done, since I cannot do a lot of things I used to do."
Her words of affirmed hope and desire to grow gracefully through her trials make me want to cry tears for this fine lady. I believe she would like to gain some support.
So, if you've managed to read this , I would hope one + gals would step up to email her . Simply text me for her email address that I will gladly share. A new friend may be born amongst us. Imagine that!
And on this day, I am wanting you to know that I am truly thankful for kindnesses and support that has been shown to me, as I try to return the favor and grow older gracefully.
