When I put some thought to it the word kindness is what I do for someone else.
I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago and forgot to do so. Which leads me to believe
that kindness won't stay in the for thought of my mind without reminders.. I want it to become the most natural thing for me. I want to cut back on the gee I wish I had thought to..... moments. So I'm thinking of ways to become more aware of what is going on around me.
I have too many post-its now, I would never notice another one sooooo....I see more crafting in my future. And you thought I was kidding.
This really spoke to me, I'm going to do something with this first. It will be quick and easy.
Then I will sew next, it will come to me. I find that while I'm sewing or embroidering that I'm think about why and what I'm working on, which implant it more deeply in my mind and broadens the perspective.
Blessings to you and yours,
Kindness is a great word and we need more of it in this world. I love all your post-it notes!ReplyDelete
And you showed your kindness to me with the yarn! I am using it and will soon send you a pic of what I am making;-)ReplyDelete
Love it! That is one word we can ALL use.ReplyDelete
Great word! We can all use some kindness in our lives. Giving and receiving. Hugs, LJReplyDelete
I don't follow a word for the year either, but I think something like "kindness" would be ideal.ReplyDelete
Oh this has been weighing on my mind. I recently thought about the last few conversations I have had with my daughter. She was so impatient and actually rude. It makes me not want to talk to her. I understand she has problems, but she has put them in the way of having a conversation.ReplyDelete
Thank I thought about myself and how I can sometimes become impatient with Terry when he doesn't follow the conversation or forgets what we just talked about.
I'd like to hang this picture of these words in front of my face as a reminder until it becomes second nature. It's an embarrassment to have to be reminded to be kind.
I have a feeling that kindness come more naturally to you than you know. With that being said we all could certainly be more mindful in our dealings with others and remember to be kind to ourselves as well.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful word, and attitude: kindness. It does suit you so well. What you commented on Confessions of a Fabric Addict about starting a link party for those who sew/quilt for others, what a marvelous idea. And, you also sew pillowcase dresses for needy girls? So do I! Small world it is. 'So glad to have found your blog recently, as you are truly a kind, compassionate person.ReplyDelete
Kindness is a terrific word for the new year! I couldn't see your second picture -- bummer. But the link to it was broken.ReplyDelete
I love your work area! Kindness is a word all of us should have in front of us. I often wish I had sent a card, made that phone call, or visited someone - and then it was too late.ReplyDelete
(I couldn't see your second picture either.)
Tonia, when I was teaching school full-time, I always had a small plaque hung near the door that said, "Practice Kindness". It was simple, but to the point. Kids (and adults) need this reminder daily. We are all happier and more pleasant to live with when kindness is frequently used. I love it!ReplyDelete
Kindness goes a long way, and it really is easy to practice...be kind to yourself first, the rest falls into place..your cubby spot looks inviting and easy to cover up xReplyDelete
Kindness is a beautiful virtue! Thank you for leaving such kind comments on our blog. We are happy to join you here also :)ReplyDelete
