kindness for me…

July 11, 2010

When a six year old who doesn’t even know you decides you might need some kindness, it pretty much melts your heart in ways you didn’t know possible. Gayle Smith and her sweet daughter set out to offer me a little kindness as part of their Ding Dong Ditch mission. You can check out the very awesome video of their adventure and gift to me here.

The bread and sundried tomato pesto might have been the yummiest thing I’ve had all year…anything mixed with that much intentional care and kindness always tastes better. I was so humbled and touched…I never really connect the work I’m doing until kindness finds her way to me, it’s a wonder everytime. I’m completely undone by it…and in awe. Thank you Gayle and Margaret for making my week, and closing out The Great Ding Dong Ditch with such a bang!

    So sweet! Or maybe I should say, so savory!

    Patience,
    There are people in this world who are saints. Like Mother Teresa or St. Francis. They are people who live for others when it feels right, but also when it’s hard. They are people who love without counting the cost, because in the end, it makes the hard things easier and the easy things a celebration of life. You are a saint. Saint Patience. A living, breathing saint whose life is an example to all those who need to touch the transformational power of love. May all the things you need come to you, and may you always have the courage to believe in change for the world.
    Gayle
