Our Kind

A  L  O  H  A !
" Your worst enemy 
cannot harm you
 as much as 
your own 
unguarded thoughts. "

Cedar Waxwing  "Bandit"
“ Kindness
 is never wasted. 
If it has no effect 
on the recipient,
 at least it benefits
 the bestower.” 
                        S. H. Simmons

 "Helicopter Parents "

" Nothing has a stronger influence
 psychologically. . . 
especially on their children, 
than the unlived lives 
of the parents. "
                              Carl Gustav Jung 

 “A person who feels appreciated
 will always do more
 than what is expected.”  

" A kind heart
 is a fountain of gladness,
 making everything 
in its vicinity
 freshen into smiles."
                              Washington Irving

" Kindness is more
 than deeds. 
It is an attitude, 
an expression, 
a look, a touch. 
It is anything 
that lifts another 
person. "


Seems to me
the essence of our
blog life
is Kindness.

What we create
and share
feeds me

Hope YOU
feel the same!

                       Fondly, cloudia

I'll say you try mightily to put a plate down in front of me regularly Cloudia, as you know though there are yet places expanding where kindness can get you killed.

Really excellent quotes here, Cloudia. I confess I'm partial to a lot of the Buddha quotes you post.

I've never seen that Bandit bird here in the islands yet. I'll keep my eyes open.

And yes, kindness is always appreciated.
