Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. ~ Lao Tzu

We’ve talked a lot about gratitude and giving and one of my favorite posts on the subject comes from a long-time friend of mine on her wonderful blog.  Her piece is short and simple and truly gets at the core of why giving of your time and yourself can make you happier.  The best bit is that she posts a list of the things that she learned or relearned as part of her volunteering, give it a read and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane

Things I Have Learned (or reminded of) Recently by LeAnne Notabartolo on her Good for Spooning blog a really wonderful blog about food and life.
