K is for Kindness

Perfect timing!

While thinking about what on earth 
I was going to write today with the letter "K" 
 the morning news started talking about how researchers have found a kindness gene. 
(not jeans....that was yesterday!)
Some people have it and some people don't......

Want to read the source?  Huffington Post published an article today about research that was made on the   
                                       "kindness" gene.  

I love this quote by Amelia Earhart.  
You just never know what will grow from the seeds 
(of kindness) you plant.

"A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves."
AMELIA EARHART, Magic City Morning Star, Jun. 1, 2005

The Random Acts of Kindness day isn't until  
November 12th this year, 
but I challenge you today or tomorrow 
to perform at least one Random Act of Kindness. 

Have a kindness kind of day.......and make sure to Kiss someone!



  1. Every day should be Random Act of Kindness day! Thanks for the reminder. :)

  2. Hi Tammy, Nice K post. Wow a kindness gene, now that is interesting. I never knew there was such a thing as Random Act of Kindness Day. Marked it on my calendar, but I alwayst try to be kind and to treat people the way I wish to be treated anyhow.
