Today is World Kindness Day. The world could use a double shot of kindness. Top shelf.
If I used CNN as a kindness meter it would be a giant fail. So I look to my friends and Bradley Cooper to reassure myself that kindness is alive and well. And also sparkling blue eyes, talent and a kind face that melts my heart.
I am going to celebrate World Kindness Day by making sure my communication with my family is at an even volume of one. No more, “WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN SHOOTING POTATOES ACROSS THE YARD? THAT’S WEIRD .”
“C’mon, Mom, you gotta admit you would like to launch a potato across the yard.”
And that is my gauge for my kindness factor. Yelling at my kid for launching potatoes. Man, I have a lot of work to do.
