A quick little post tonight in tribute to all the kind people of the world. Thank you for carving time out of your day to be kind to other humans. I've known very kind people and not so kind people, and I like the kind people better. Who doesn't?
I'm dedicating today's words to people who have gone above and beyond to be kind to me. When someone is kind to me, it raises my energy level like nothing else. It makes me smile and feel good about our world's future. I have experienced kindness on many levels, but most recently, here are the people that stand out in my mind:
My friend Heather Atkinson who always makes sure there is an organic or Non-GMO food at her house when I come for a visit or for a party. This simple gesture warms my heart in ways she could never imagine.
My friend and massage therapist, Monica Caporale for allowing my husband and I to chill at her house when our car battery died. She had a house full of kids, yet still took the time to eat some chips with us and chat while we waited for AAA. Anyone in need of a great massage therapist in Louisville, Kentucky NEEDS Monica in their life. Here's her contact info: https://www.facebook.com/Caporale.LMT/
My friend and the best esthetician in Louisville, Holly Hoskins, for taking time out of her busy schedule to spend some her free time with me when I need skin help. She goes above and beyond for her clients, has the sweetest heart ever, and truly cares about everyone she meets. Need a facial, peel, wax, laser hair removal, new eyebrows or have other skin concerns? See Holly today. Here's her contact info: https://www.facebook.com/aestheticsholly/
My sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Susie and Garret Messer. They both are two of the most supportive people in my husband's and my life. Susie's occasional phone calls to us both just to check in on us and tell us we aren't being "crazy" for our new life decisions all come from a place of unconditional love and we are grateful for that. They are both fantastic parents, raising our niece and nephew to think for themselves and teach them how to be kind to all people. We are grateful to have them both in our life.
What do all these people have in common? Time.
They all take a few minutes out of their day, despite their busy lives, to take the time to be kind to another human. They don't ask for anything in return. They are just kind humans who give the gift of time to another human.
And time is one of the best gifts you can give to someone.
