Town Square

Post a New Topic


Original post made by Kindness on Jun 9, 2014

I was having a lousy day a few months back. Soon after arriving home, the doorbell rang. With slight dread, I answered it only to be greeted by the smiling face of a friend holding a card and a bottle of wine. A kind gesture and gracious words are a great tonic for whatever ails you. Try it. You'll make someone's day.

Ummm this same topic/story was in posted in the Town Square on March 18. Why post it again? I didn't find it very meaningful the first time and definitely not the second...

How come it matters to you that you don't find the topic "meaningful".

who cares?

Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.

You can never have too much kindness in this crazy world. I'm glad the naysayer uses the name "Student" because they obviously still have a lot to learn. (sorry that wasn't very kind)
