the thing about kindness

the thing about kindness

The thing about kindness

is that in doing something 

for someone else

you feel so much

better yourself.

And then after a time 

you find yourself

on the receiving end 

of the same.

It is all love.

Really it is.

You might not call it that

when you drop off a dozen rolls

or a cinnamon bun from the bakery

on the doorstep

of someone with a cold.

Or when you call a friend 

to see if they need a ride.

But it is love.

Love in action.

Love made real.

Love brought to life

with two hands 

and a warm heart.

And it does you as much good 

to bring it to someone else's door 

as it does to find it at your own.

Warm biscuits.

A bag of tomatoes in August.

A drive to the grocery store.

A note in the mail.

I must remember to do that. 

For thinking about it is just an idea.

Doing it is love made real.
