Love is Kind

This world can often be very tough and unforgiving, but one act of random kindness can really change a person's life. Webster Dictionary's definition is "the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate." It's interesting how all these 3 words create what kindness is. One can certainly be friendly without much consideration and one can definitely be generous without being friendly. I think what ties in everything together is consideration, meaning you put yourself in the other person's shoes and you anticipate their needs while fulfilling them. 

Kindness in marriage may seem easy, but I know it's going to be difficult. It's easy to be comfortable and take things for granted. It's easy to rely on the other person to do the chores around the house. It's easy to be less considerate and more mindful of myself. Before you know it, you forget to be kind. You forget to be considerate. 

Kindness is applied to all areas in our lives through everyone we meet. I thought Even Almighty was a so-so movie, but one of the best quotes from the film is:

"You can change the world with one act of random kindness at a time..." (ARK)
