A Little Kindness...

Goes a long LONG way!

I had some errands to run today.  And I had to take the kids with me.  At one of our stops - a small health food store - the owner complimented me on my children and how well behaved they were.  And then complimented me on how I was handling them during our shopping there.  (And we were there quite a while since I was searching for a new vitamin...)  The feeling his friendliness gave me was overwhelming.  I really needed to hear something like that.  Lately, I've been feeling quite stressed with the harvest and the new house and school starting and fall coming...  I have been feeling like a less than adequate mother.  The little encouraging pat on the back was just what I needed to help keep me going. 

The kindness of a stranger is a powerful thing.  Spread the kindness.
