Kindness Matters

It's so easy to feel bombarded by all of the bad, the evil, the sadness in this world we live in.

It's easy to feel discouraged and completely depressed by it all.

I think that's why it's so refreshing and encouraging and lovely to read stories that show you the good that is still in this world. The kind of stories that make you want to be better, to do more, to be the good in the world.

If you are in a need of that kind of encouragement today, please read this precious story here.

It's a wonderful reminder of how far a little kindness can go and what a HUGE difference it can make to the people it is extended to.


  1. Wow. That was really cool!
    In a time when sports is WINWINWIN, that was really nice

  2. That was awesome, thank you!


  3. Ok, so first thing this morning, I clicked the link and saw an ESPN page... I thought, "How did that happen?" thinking I'd been re-routed so I closed that window and came back to your blog and tried again.

    Landed on the same story.

    So I read it. Duh... I was in the right place the first time (who would have guessed?) and it was a great story. Thanks for sharing it... I would never have read it if you hadn't have pointed it out.

  4. How very very awesome! If we all would take a little bit of this life lesson and pass it on wouldn't this world be a better place! Thanks Shannon for sharing!
