There’s boy scout helping the elderly lady cross the road kindness.
There’s Sir Walter Raleigh throwing a coat over a puddle for Queen Elizabeth kindness.
There’s volunteering your time and donating and collecting items for disaster relief kindness.
In this world there are so many ways that just a little kindness can make such a big difference.
When I asked my husband what he thought kindness was….
…..he said he thought kindness was wives who actually watched the March Madness games instead of sitting on the couch blogging through the entire tournament season, all while acting like they were watching the games with their husband.
I don’t know if I’m ready for that kind of kindness yet.
But my favorite kindness of all is completely random.
Because you want to brighten someone’s day when they least expect it.
Because the universe has blessed you extraordinarily and you want to pay it forward.
To someone else.
Expecting nothing in return.
It’s all karah’s idea, you see.
The goal is simply this, to leave the world a little kinder than when we found it.
And I am sending two of these projects to these wonderful, incredible, inspiring bloggers who have blessed me immeasurably in ways they may never know.

Each package contains two canvases.
All I ask is that you keep one for yourself and pass the other to someone who truly needs it. Someone who is facing a challenge or obstacle or for whom life is a little overwhelming right now.
You don’t need to tell them about me or this silly blog.
Just tell them it’s from a friend.
Kindness. It’s so 2012.
Pass it on.
PS If you have a random act of kindness story, I would love to hear it.
