Ripples #805: The Warmth of Kindness!
Love and kindness are never wasted.
They always make a difference.
They bless the one who receives them,
and they bless you, the giver.
-Barbara De Angelis, shared by Jane in Minneapolis, MN
Kindness, not unlike a flamethrower applied to an igloo, can melt the walls we’ve built around our hearts; and often just as dramatically. Being kind feeds the souls of all involved.
-written and shared by Bonnie Jean Starr in Richmond, VA
I feel confident that the idea of spreading kindness is already baked into the souls of all of our Ripples readers; for me these quotes provide a useful reminder that kindness not only benefits the person you’re extending it to. IT IMPACTS YOU, TOO!
As the days are increasingly crispy and as the nights get down right chilly, we can keep ourselves and those around us warm with smiles and waves and small favors. Keep your eye out this week for an extra opportunity to warm someone’s soul with an unexpected kindness. Pretty please?

p.s. One really useful way you can unleash kindness is by submitting fresh quotes for potential use in our Ripples newsletter. It takes dozens of submissions to find two really good quotes that match each other. We rely on the kindness of Ripplers to keep our pond stocked with fresh inspiration!
