K is for Kind
Kind. Such an interesting word that sounds kind of funny. It can be a noun, as in, this is my kind of book. It can be an adjective, for example, she is really kind.
Are you kind? Of course I don't mean the noun usage.
Are you kind to animals? It really breaks my heart when people abuse and mistreat animals.
Are you kind to your spouse? If you know she likes the toilet seat down, do you really not think about it or do you leave it up just to "get her goat?"
Your children, family and friends? When that child continually asks the same question over and over and over again, do you tune him out or try to locate tape and glue or soldering iron to aid him in permanently shutting his mouth!
Your enemies? Ah! That's a good one! It is easy to be nice and kind to those we love, but the real test is to extend kindness to those persons we don't really like or who don't like us!
Are you kind to yourself? Finding joy on the journey in life begins with loving yourself. That means you must be as kind to yourself as you purpose to be to others.
Kind is one of those words we use often not really understanding the true meaning. Being kind is to be friendly, generous, humane, forbearing and agreeable. Yes, even when you are not in the mood!
