I left a donation in the container at the Ukranian market. I did buy two items using the pictures. My best guess. I haven’t been in a market since my last trip to NYC. This was quiet. Fewer shoppers. No grill running. No hot coffee on demand. But as I accepted the change from my transaction, I added another folded bill and placed it in the container marked “Humanitarian Donations”. My step was lighter, the bell rang and I exited the market.
Being Kind is of first nature to some folks. I know that a picture of my friend belongs next to “Being Kind” in the dictionary. “Being kind” is being the bearer of alternating cups of coffee on alternating days in the dorm. “Being kind” is checking in before, during, and after sessions. “Being kind” is ingrained in her DNA. “Being kind” as a teacher takes patience and Kitty Donohoe is filled with kindness. Thanks for reminding me of the value of kindness in all human beings.
When you hear “kind” who do you immediately think of? What specifically says “kind” to you?
