Being kind by thanking a neighbour for their delightful rose garden:
On my walking meditations, I always look forward to passing a rose garden in my neighbourhood.
One particular day when I was feeling a little low in spirits, I took myself out for a soul stroll in the hope that it would make me feel better.
And it worked a treat.
I took my usual route through the trees and along the brook, but decided to take a different way back home using a cut-through.
As I came out onto the street, I walked straight into the heavenly sweet scent of roses coming from a delightful garden full of rose bushes.
With roses of yellows, oranges, reds and pinks abound, the garden was a joyful treat. It was absolutely glorious.
It literally stopped me in my tracks and reminded me of the expression: “Stop and smell the roses”. The perfect reminder to slow down and take the time to appreciate the beauty of life.
And I think of this every time I pass this blissful garden, and it always lifts my spirits.
So today I decided to thank the owners for their well cared for garden. I posted a Kindness Card through their letterbox with these words written on the back:
“Thank you for your delightful rose garden. I walk by most days and your colourful roses and their heavenly scent always lift my spirits.”
So with this in mind, my happy for today is being kind by thanking a neighbour for their rose garden.
