Kindness does many things; here’s three. No quote resonated today until a friend from California called me and she told me how much she likes the 21-day meditation program from Oprah and Deepak Chopra. I asked her to forward the link and it opened on Day 11-Kindness. At the end of the email was the quote from Lao Tzu on kindness which sparked today photo quote. It takes so little to be kind.

I’ve noticed with a mad pace, promises are not what they used to be. Deals were made on a hand shake. Words carried weight. How many times do we say we’ll call someone, do something and drop the ball? We’re busy. Distracted. Overloaded. We forget our promise. It’s usually so small it goes unnoticed. But when someone remembers a small kindness, doesn’t it feel big?
