Kindness, learning from our kids

Acts of kindness   What I learned from my daughter in law about kindness has made my life so much fuller.  Over the years, I’ve forgotten how to just say something nice to a stranger.  Have you ever had someone compliment you while you’re out, lovely perfume, your scarf is beautiful or love your glasses?  It […]
