Being kind by bringing home a library book for my mum:
My mum recently borrowed a book from our local library, but a few pages in she realised she’d already read it. Mum decided to continue with it until she could go back to the library and choose a new book.
This was on my mind as I popped into our library today. I looked for and checked out a book I thought she would enjoy.
When I gave mum the book, she was really touched and said it could be my kindness act for the day.
I was quite surprised because it didn’t feel like an act of kindness; I haven’t really considered thoughtfulness as an act of kindness before.
But when I think about it, they do go hand-in-hand.
I’ve been focussing on the bigger acts of kindness, especially those that take me out of my comfort zone. But it’s also about the thoughtful everyday little gestures. Especially to those who are part of our day-to-day lives.
Today has been a lovely reminder that all acts of kindness, big or small, showy or low key, deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated.
So with this in mind, my happy for today is being kind by bringing home a library book for my mum.
