Random acts of kindness!

If you would have asked me a few weeks ago, "Kym, what do you think about people being kind?" I would have told you that in today's society... kindness no longer existed. Why, you ask? Because I hadn't seen it outside of my family since I was a child. 

I remember the days of old (Yep, I'm aging myself here) where a neighbor would mow your lawn, because they knew you were sick. Or, when a stranger would hold the door open for you... just because that was the right thing, or a kind thing to do.

Today's society is always speeding ahead at full tilt that not many take that extra moment to do something kind for someone else.

Two weeks ago, after hearing about a few medical issues that I was experiencing, a woman whom I knew from the book world to be someone very sweet, always sharing other authors working and singing their praises from up high on the mountain tops (Well... that's how it feels to us, anyway). I had talked to her on the phone once and connected with her on social media as often as possible. 

Well... she sent me a private message on FB that made me stop and cry like a little school girl, and just like the Grinch, my heart grew three times larger. She told me that I had touched her heart and that one thing on her bucket list was to meet me. She's hosting a convention in Maine next August and that she would love if I could attend. The woman with the heart of gold is none other than, Derinda Love.

Derinda writes under pen name, D. Love. Her debut novel is a touching story and her kindness plays out in the pages of Today Only.

I want to see if we, you and me can start a new trend... can we each do one thing kind for someone else a week. It would take a moment of your time and not cost a penny. Go show Derinda the same kind of love and kindness that she displays to the entire writing community by liking her page. Say hi to her. <3

In life, there are times you are granted a miracle. It may not be the one you wanted exactly, but it will be the one you need. It will prepare you for the next step in your journey and help you learn to accept the life you are given, even if that life can be heartbreaking.

  1. Derinda Love is a wonderful person. She really would give someone the shirt of of her back, a rarity these days. She truly is a diamond in the rough.
