How did you practice
Kindness today?

  • Shared by RachaelEliza on Jan 27, 2015

    My sister and I had a day off from school today due to snow, so our walk consisted mostly of romping around in the snow with our dog and sledding on the hills around our house. :)

    I usually walk during my lunch hour at work. Today I was doubly rewarded. It was beautiful and sunny out, and my friend joined me.
