Week two of our Christmas countdown… this weeks value/feeling is kindness 🙂
Kindness by definition is the act or the state of being kind, being marked by good and charitable behavior, pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions (per Wikipedia). Some of my favorite synonyms for this that I found are affection, charity, gentleness, good intention, grace, hospitality, patience, tenderness, thoughtfulness, tolerance, and understanding.
What kindness, compassion, grace, tenderness, and understanding came through that night. How can we compete… but we can do our best to be kind, charitable, gentle, hospitable, patient, thoughtful, and understanding. I am going to do my best this week to focus on living this virtue… we will see how I do. 😉
