Today’s the day … no excuses!

It is officially World Kindness Day. So all those times when you’ve heard of folks doing a Random Act of Kindness or RAOK and thought you ought to do the same, today is your dayβ€”the perfect day to surprise someone with a little bit of kindness. Hmm, what will it be and who will be the unsuspecting recipient? Kind of fun to go about your day with the intent to make someone else’s!

    I didn’t know kindness had a day of its own. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the notice. I have a little project going on here that fits the theme. The other day on the way home, I noticed an injured dove walking lamely along the road. Apparently, she’d been grazed by a vehicle. She didn’t appear to be mortally wounded. I placed her inside my jacket to quiet her and took her home. Inside of 10 minutes (after being put into a chicken cage), she was eating and drinking. So began this little re-hab project. I don’t know if she will be able to fly again. I hope so, I’d like to set her free. I feed lots of doves on open feeders mounted on my garden-yard fence. They are Collared Doves that resemble Mourning and Turtle doves. If this little beauty [she’s a she] does not heal up as hoped, she may get to be a pet. I had no idea how popular doves are as pets … nor how easily tamed they are … nor how long-lived they are. Well, anyway … kindness is a two way thing. It is as good for the giver as the receiver πŸ™‚

      I agree! I so enjoyed sending/sharing little words of appreciation to friends and loved ones all day. It can only perpetuate a good mood to go through the day thinking of all the ways you appreciate folks! And gorgeous little birdies that survived the worst of it. πŸ™‚ Glad to hear your little gal is doing well.
