  1. […] baby steps…pushing myself, just a little to be okay and open being all the things…to claiming my work and power, yet still carry a fragile, kind of screwed up heart. Posted by kindnessgirl Filed in kindness […]

    I am really touched and inspired by your story. It’s amazing the ripple effect that kindness can have on both the giver and the recipient.
    My husband is a terminally ill cancer patient and we have been the recipients thoughout this stressful ordeal of many thoughtful acts of kindness from many sometimes nameless people that have given us the strength to press on, one day at a time.
    Thank you for all that you do and also all those that you have inspired.

  4. Christine Says:

    You have inspired me to start my own kindness mission, thank you, and thanks to O Mag, where I read your story. 365 acts of kindness is what I am going to aspire to starting this thanksgiving (my favorite holiday), I am even considering blogging about it, but we will see I am a busy mother of a delightful little baby boy.

    Thank you!

    I have been not looking at blogs for a long time. recently I started my own since I thought it was time to give something back of the wonderful things that were given to me over the last few years. Since then I stumble over blogs of wonderful people like you. Your blog made my heart glow, thank you.

    Perhaps you will find something useful on my blog as well ?! You can even subscribe, so I can keep you posted!
