Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Being There


--by brindlegirl, posted Mar 22, 2016
I strive to practice kindness towards my son. Every day after lunch, I sit down and enjoy a piece of chocolate and cup of tea. This is my time. I love it. I never ever want to give it up.

Today I did. I did because I knew the right and kind thing to do in that moment was play with my son. I hadn't spent much time with him at all and every ounce of my being said I needed to. We played bowling.

Some days I get it right. I am so kind always to others, but as Mother Teresa so often said: "kindness begins at home". It is also where it is most important ♡
