My Ode to Kindness

When I look for kindness, I see it all around

The young person helps an elderly woman with groceries

The driver stopping to check on a dog near the road

The smile from the clerk when she checks me out

A hello as I walk down the street

The truck driver slowing down to let me into his lane

The laughter of children playing

The adult taking the hand of a child to cross the street

The neighbor who fixes my appliance

Kindness blooms where kindness is planted

Plant kindness where you are

smile at the harried clerk

say thank you to the kindness others offer

show appreciation for those who serve

encourage a friend

Kindness spreads like wildfire

Please plant it where you are
