Week 20

Ocean City, NJ
It was a great weekend with my son, his wife and our beautiful granddaughter. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to be invited on their family trip. We really had a great time. It meant the world to me to be included!

Week 21

NY Skyline from Brooklyn
I took my Mom to Brooklyn to see my son. He was the best tour guide ever. He took us all over and tried to minimize the walking so my Mom would get too tired. It was so nice of him to spend the whole day with us. That's what it's all!

Week 19

Well, this was a horrendous week, from the Boston bombings, the West, TX fire/explosion, and then the earthquake in China. But the one thing that has been a constant in all of these terrible tragedies, is the kindness of strangers. It makes me feel so hopeful for the future and especially my granddaughter's future. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the people affected one way or another by these tragedies. Hopefully some day their lives will go back to some sort of normalcy, but for now, I hope they can rely on their faith or at least their renewed faith in human kindness and not the ugliness that exists out there.

Week 18

Well, it's been a while. Thanksgiving came and went and today is Christmas. I tried to stay mindful of the kindness blog but kept putting off posting. I had a very blessed holiday but couldn't stop thinking about those less fortunate. And I couldn't stop thinking about the 26 new Angels from Newtown, CT and the 2 Firefighters ambushed in NY. Things need to change but I still have faith that there are enough kind and good people out there to make it happen. I'll try my best in my neck of the woods. I hope you will too!

Week 17

Hurricane Sandy! What a mess. It is very important to be kind this week. If your friends or neighbors need you, please be there for them. We need to all stick together and get through this. Poor NYC, it's going to take a while to clean up and Point Pleasant Beach, one of my personal favorites, I hope you recover real soon. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.

Week 16

I like to watch Ellen from time to time when I'm home from work for one reason or another. Recently she gave a woman not far from here a new car and then invited her and her BFF back on the show during the 12 days of giveaways. I really think that Ellen is truly a kind and loving soul. She really is an inspiration to those of us that are trying to be kind, even though the world likes to knock the wind out of us from time to time, leaving us feeling a little less than kind. I know that there are people out there who are really trying, in spite of their current conditions, to try to see what other people are going through and give them a hand. Hooray for Ellen and all those out there that are trying to do the same, in large and small ways!

Week 15

My sister is the best! She treated me and my Mom to a trip to the Keys this past weekend. The weather was perfect, the scenery was spectacular and the company couldn't have been better. She is one of the most generous people I know.
