A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve.
- Joseph Joubert, French philosopher

Just a quick note before I head to bed.  I love this quote that I posted above.  Kindness, such an easy word to say, yet not so easy for some to act on.  I'd like to see more people in this world, care more for others.  It seems the older I get the worse the general populations dislike for each other becomes.  There are a lot of angry people out there, who just do what they can to make others feel awful.  Some almost get a rush from it.  The news has become down right horror-storyesque.  I can't bare to read the daily headlines anymore.  So many missing adults, and children.  So many murders.  Why is this happening so much?  What is to become of us if this keeps up? 
I realize I probably sound like some fruit loop right now, but it's truly how I feel.  You would be amazed how starting your day smiling will impact the rest of your day.  "Give on to this world, what you wish you get out of it"   That's something that is always going through my mind.   It's the same with people, treat them as you would want to be treated.  Such a simple little concept, yet so many just aren't getting it.  Don't get me wrong, I don't wake up puking flowers, and love sonnets, I have my own grumpy, pessimistic side.  I was just thinking alot tonight about how I want my children to grow up wanting to give to people.  Help the needy, and less fortunate, and just be nice to everyone.  I want them to always feel the way they do now about the world, and their life.  That it is magical, and full of beautiful and exciting things to explore.  Knowing that will someday be tainted with bitter reality, breaks my heart. 

I've been thinking about starting a "random acts of kindness" adventure with my children.  A few mothers that I know have done this and it has made a huge impact on them.  I have some really good ideas and I think that my kids will love it, and really get into it.  Maybe tomorrow I will talk about this with them, and come up with a start date.  I'll let you know what we decide to do, and what our first idea will be. 

Well I guess that is really all for tonight.  Just some ramblings I've had in my mind lately.  I hope to write something about my son Kevin tomorrow, to introduce you to him as well.  The three of them have been very interested in my blog, and got a big kick out of reading about themselves today.  They feel famous now.  LOL So stinken cute they are!!!

Sweet Dreams everyone!!

God Bless


  1. Random acts of kindness should be part of everyday living. Pleasing folks isn't a random thing. It's calculated and awesome. :)

    You are a good one. Don't change lady face!

    Love life, love kids, love fun!
