At times like these, it’s good to remember the tiny acts of kindness others have done for us and how much they meant. That’s our indication that someone else mattered in our lives. We have offered just such help many times too and the circle is completed. ~ Casey, Karen. Keepers of The Wisdom Daily Meditations: Reflections From Lives Well Lived. Hazelden Publishing.

I was new in town, nine years old, in a small town
where everybody knew everybody.
I’d made one buddy and she and I…
to my utter amazement went all over town.
One day for some reason, having walked
to the two street by four blocks
that made up downtown,
we went into the bus station
for some long-forgotten reason.
A down time, the only employ on duty
looked at me, a pudgy youngster in pigtails,
and said the kindest words possible,
“You have a pretty face.”
More than sixty years have come and gone
and the comment still warms my heart.
It’s good to remember
the tiny acts of kindness
others have done for us
and how much they meant.
Have we offered just such help
many times too?
Is the circle completed?
Let’s pass out kindness today!
