It’s Kindness Counts Friday! A chance to stop and make note of the kind acts we’ve engaged in or witnessed this week.
As this post comes in the week in which Thanksgiving falls, I’ve decided to focus on the kind acts I’ve witnessed in my little section of BlogLand and give thanks for these acts.
1. An amazing woman – friend – who I’ve met through BlogLand did something so truly wonderful and so very kind, it literally made my year. She knows who she is – but will remain nameless here – and I cannot ever thank her enough. As I said to her, if I could hug her, I don’t think I’d let go for at least a day. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
2. I am so, so thankful for all the ladies (but also some men!) who come and read my blog. Thank you. It really is so kind of you. And for those of you who comment on my writing – all of whom leave the loveliest, kindest, sweetest, comments: thank you. To know that something I’ve written has grabbed your attention enough for you to take time to leave me a comment, it bowls me over every time it happens. Thank you for your kindness xxx
3. I was nominated for an award a few weeks ago, for my blog. Thank you Britney and Charlotte for the nomination: it was so kind of you! Thanks, also, Sami Anne for the nomination: I will be posting about it, promise! [It was so kind of you, thank you!].
4. The ever-wonderful Chelsea posted about a lovely little book here and has a few copies to give away just because. It struck me as a pretty wonderfully kind thing to do, to offer copies of the book she loves to her readers just because!
A whole bunch of kind acts that make me smile every time I think about them and make me want to continue developing my little section of BlogLand. You read about it everywhere, about how wonderful the community aspect of blogging is. I myself have really come to realise, in the last few weeks, how truly wonderful it is that we can throw pieces of our soul out in to the world, in our blog posts, and have people come and kindly appreciate what we write. We then make connections via those little signs of appreciation and our world seems that much fuller, that much kinder because we realise our thoughts and our words matter. Isn’t that a wonderful thing?
Thank you all of my readers…thank you for coming, for staying, for commenting, for making my troubles that much easier to bear through all of your kindnesses. Thank you.
Saw this and had to post it:
Have a lovely weekend, ladies.
Hug your loved ones close.
Smile – it feels good.
Laugh – it feels even better.
Be kind – you never know what impact that might have on the person receiving your kindness.
