I have been practicing kindness.

It is a thing that takes a great deal of practice. Needless to say, it has been difficult at times.

Kindness is difficult to spare 1) when I'm driving, 2) when people yell obscenities at me, 3) when I haven't slept more than five hours, and 4) when I'm anywhere near anyone I love.

But today, there have been numerous times when it has helped to be kind.

In every part of life, kindness looses none of its power: it always has a tendency to calm fears and soothe hurts, it restores friendships, it encourages people to listen.

Not that you don't know this. If you're like me, you know it well. You just have to work at it.

Or you forget.
