They always make a difference.
They bless the one who receives them,
and they bless you, the giver.

in the love that inspires it.

Let us be kind;
The way is long and lonely,
And human hearts are asking for this blessing only --
That we be kind.

We cannot see the souls storm-swept by sorrow,
But love can shine upon the way to-day, to-morrow --
Let us be kind.
- W. Lomax Childress

The greatest impact we can have on our family, our friends, and our world
is our kindness and love.
Your love is more powerful than your words or your actions.

to plan, to persevere, to interact with our social network,
and to feel a sense of accomplishment when we finally overcome the unexpected roadblock.
