Kindness Without Expectation
Grateful for Kindness
When we show kindness to others, we often expect kindness in return. Sometimes, that happens; other times it does not. We can feel hurt when we're not extended the same consideration we extend someone else. Kindness, however, is a bit like gift giving: The joy is ours to give...
Accepting kindness from others is the highest form of gratitude. We acknowledge that people care for us, and we are thankful for their care. Often, their kindness comes at the worst times in our lives, when we need kindness most--after a tragic event or during a serious illness.
Being grateful for kindness opens our hearts. To appreciate kindness, we must learn to be givers and receivers and to do both sincerely and humbly.
Kindness is its own reward.
If we measure kindness that way, we will always have full hearts.
Wishing everyone love, kindness, and gratitude.
