|Be Kind to Each Other|
Definition of Kindness : The quality of being warm-hearted and considerate and humane and sympathetic. To have a tendency to be forgiving.
Kindness is such a simple word and yet how much better the world would be if everyone always tried to be KIND.
I am very blessed in that my two daughters are very kind and caring towards everyone they meet. When my husband and I (along with my youngest daughter and her family) were with my eldest daughter at Christmas, she and her husband were kindness itself. Nothing was too much trouble to make our stay really enjoyable. It's quite a thing to suddenly have eight people suddenly descend on your normally peaceful family home, and to have every corner of the house invaded!
They were endlessly patient with the one and two year olds, trying to give their mum as much of a break as they could. It was the first time that their little puppy had met the little ones, and I admit that I was a bit apprehensive about this, especially with the youngest still crawling, but little Alfred was SO good with them, and absolutely adored the one year old. Likewise, she adored him, following him everywhere, even trying to get into his cage and bed with him!
|Here is my daughter with Alfred. It was a lovely photo of her and my son-in-law, but he doesn't want to appear either on facebook or my Blog, so, unfortunately, I've had to cut him out of the photo!!|
Obviously, when you have to leave family behind again, it is always sad, but we phone each other regularly and text and e-mail, and will look forward to the next time when we can all be together again.
Going back to my Petey Award, one of the rules is that I have to mention the person who handed it to me three times, so I am now inviting you to visit my good friend Bouncin'Barb over at http://bouncinbarbs.blogspot.com/ I know you will not be disappointed when you read her posts. She has been very supportive to me since I started blogging, and when you first start out on this blogging journey, you really appreciate it when someone like that comes along.
Including the post when I mentioned BB when she first nominated me for the Award, I think that this is the third time, but I am sure she will tell me if I have to do it once more. Thank you Bouncin'Barb for your friendship.
