When was your last random act of kindness?.My last random act of kindness was to help a friend that was in need. He had been through some heart wrenchingly difficult times. Understand that we are hurting financially, too–but this friend was pretty desperate. We figured if we helped him, perhaps sometime down the road this friend would feel whole once again. he has been through so much and has so much to offer. So often we are offered the chance to be part of someone’s future miracles. A chance to make his or her ripples bigger in the sparkling pond of life. It is so much fun to participate in that. To run with that kite string up the hill and help re-launch that kite. That joy of participating in and observing those miracles…it is why I tutor….it is why I write…it is why I blog…it is why I speak…it is why I love…it is why I hope…it is why I dream…it is why I love….it is why I am a perennial optimist!…it is why!!!!

I am a perennial optimist
