JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 344 ::christmas kindness

11 Dec
{receiving}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

Today I was on the other side of kindness….

I received an early Christmas gift. It was a bundle of yarn to crochet. I have not “crocheted” (is that a word?) since I was a little girl. My Mama Sling taught me how to hold the yarn and weave it together in a gentle way that eventually created a scarf.

My scarf was crooked with wobbly holes. But I loved it. I loved it so much I gave that scarf to my friend Kari for her birthday. We were maybe in second grade and I’m sure the “gift” looked just as wobbly as my little fingers as they mimicked my mothers weaving magic.

But it was the thought that counted the most. And that brings me to this:  Sometimes the best part of kindness is receiving.

Being open to gifts and the love that comes with it might just be one of the secrets of Christmas.

And now…. I crochet!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 15 :: sunday night kindness 

15 Jan

Planning ahead.

It’s a Sunday around here. Trying to soak in the sun before the rain arrives this week. Trying to soak in a few hours of relaxation before the work arrives this week. Trying to soak in the slow moments of a Sunday morning mocha too.


That’s a bit of kindness my weekend can use. It makes me smile. I’m also smiling at the words my Aunt wrote to me tonight:

“Happy Birthday a few days early… start the celebration now. It’s a good way to be kind to yourself 😙

What a nice sentiment. I didn’t even think of that! Celebrating weeks early, or even just celebrating myself as being an Intentional Act of Kindness.

And that brings me to this:
Sometimes we need to see the world through they eyes of others in order to see exactly what it is we need for ourselves. (Thanks Aunt DeAnne!)

How kind.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
