Family Minute #46

K-I-N-D

When you can’t be anything else, you can still be kind. No matter how you’re feeling, or what you want to communicate to your friends or spouse, there is always the option to say things kindly and treat them kindly.

Here’s a simple tool for remembering what kindness is all about.

K – Keep a soft heart. If your heart is hardening toward your friend, examine the way you’re choosing to think about their faults and weaknesses.
I – Indulge your friend or spouse every once in a while. Let them have their way.
N – Notice what’s going on in their life. Be attentive and supportive.
D – Decide to be kind, even when you don’t feel like it.

Kindness is like a spa treatment for your friendship, it soothes and calms. It can also improve your friendship.

Here, here! Well said! And remember what Flower said in "Bambi", "if you haven't anything nice to say, don't say anything."

I like this! What a great way to break down the word "Kind".
