Friday Bouquet #3



I found the Kindness Blog only yesterday, and am now a follower. I love the types of stories they find and share with the world. Some are heartbreaking to begin with, yes. But when you read on, you find out how someone’s kindness made a difference.

It is uplifting to know there are such compassionate souls out there!

In their own words:

Sharing media featuring kindness in all its varied forms.

Since the Kindness Blog started, the response received from you lovely folk out there has been literally overwhelming. We’re truly honored and touched by your support and encouragement. In this regard, we’re also very conscious that any congratulation received, is due solely to the kind people whose stories we share.

These are the people who freely give help, that lend a listening ear to a sad soul’s tragic tale, that share what resources they have, that tolerate, that understand another person’s plight and actively work to uplift others from poverty, oppression and loss.  This blog celebrates the angels of kindness that walk among us every day.

From the simplest acts of charity through to grand, life-changing gestures of kindness, we publish images, videos, real-life-stories, personal reflections, quotes and other various media which all have one special thing in common…Kindness.

  I have selected two of their posts for you to check out. The first one tells of an act of kindness to an animal.

This one tells of a stranger’s kindness to a little girl with autism.

Minuscule Moments of Inspiration

For those of you who do not know….. April is Autism Awareness Month and to promote this event the colour blue is everywhere.

Here is my interpretation of what Autism means to me.

blue bird Art work By Kath Unsworth

I sketched this bird because he is beautiful, yet vulnerable, he looks like all the other birds but he is unique and flies on a different flight path than most. He is happy with who he is, it is other’s who are ignorant to difference and try to change him into something he is not.

This is for you my sweet clever boy, we will always be here for you and your sister.

Different not Less.

You never see it coming, that healthy new-born baby bubbling with possibilities . I use to wonder why I had so much freedom. Traveling the world, doing as I pleased with little or no real responsibilities. When I met…
