But, as life continues to evolve, we cannot avoid the . . .

inevitable as much as we would like to. The next challenge that arose was not as severe but I believe this to be the case because my wife and I were more attuned to developing issues. These issues of care and concern now involved her mother, who, although living alone, was for the most part able to function well enough. But, there were signs that all was not well and thus the concern for her future safety and happiness became of paramount concern.

Kindness doesn't end - it is an ever-evolving form of love that extends well beyond one's own personal life. If the case of my wife's mother, progress is being made where she is actively involved in her future and very much aware of our concern for her happiness, safety and well-being. The acts of concern go well beyond kindness but this does not mean that a level of understanding and patience with all those much-needed answers to questions is not show kindness. Kindness is a necessary commodity for all positive relationships.

Speak With Your Heart
We all need kindness in our lives and not just a simple hello or an invitation to a party. The kind of kindness I speak about comes from the heart with the understanding that what you give you get back twofold. Kindness is not something that you engage in from time to time like one would go to the movies from time to time. It is more a commitment to the higher ideals of life itself that says we really care for others no matter where or when.

Do Not Take Kindness For Granted
We all need to experience kindness in our own lives as well. And, this kindness simply means that we need to be appreciated at times even though we may expect it each and every time we do something for someone else or do a good deed. It doesn't mean, though, that anyone does not require a simple recognition or a little thank you. We respond to kindness shown to us the same way that we expect others to at least acknowledge that we care. The most difficult situations occur when our assistance goes either unnoticed for a period of time, or is completely taken for granted.
"In life you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load. When you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with."
Brian Tracy
