Today is Mother’s Day.
It has been a quiet one for me.
Although the Son wanted me to attend church with he and my DIL this morning, I haven’t been feeling the best so begged off so that I could go back to bed. Today is also my DIL’s first Mother’s Day with empty arms.
I know that this day has been hard for her but it has been made easier through the kindness of others.
Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates LOVE. -Lao Tzu_
My DIL showed me a gift that she received from a lady in our town. This woman and her husband own a jewellery store. Personally, they’ve had a hard year themselves. However, when this lady heard about the loss of precious Suzanne last year, she offered to do anything at all for the kids. She put no restrictions on her offer.
I passed on the offer to the kids and reminded them a couple of times about it but they never let me know what assistance they required so that I could pass it on to her.
The other day they went into the store to purchase a gift for my DIL’s mother and they were enveloped in a hug. This lady asked them what she could do for them as her offer made in October last year still stood. They said they could think of nothing, so she went to her cabinet and pulled out two beautiful pendants. They were jewel encrusted initials. An ‘S’ and a ‘J’. She wrapped them up and gave them to my son with instructions to give them to his wife on Mother’s Day. Her first Mother’s Day without her beloved Suzanne Joy. The pendants were placed on the chain with the heart locket she was given by family on the day of the funeral that she wears each day around her neck.
Kindness in giving creates love.
Kindness in any form is a huge blessing.
May we go into the world and be kind. ❤
