Kindness


One of the words that has been on my heart for a LONG LONG time is KINDNESS.
Kindness is something you can show a stranger as well as a close friend.
Sometimes it's a smile when you pass along the street,
holding the door for someone,
allowing a car to merge in front of you.
Sometimes it's holding your tongue when that car cuts in front of you.
Kindness is tolerating and accepting
a different point of view - even though you don't agree with it.
Sometimes it's just lending a helping hand.

Can you imagine the world if everyone was Kind to one another?
Oh, what a wonderful world it would be :)

Oh yes what a wonderful world it would be and we do get glimpses of it when we see or do a kindness. :-)
I love your photo too!

"Sometimes it's holding your tongue when that car cuts in front of you."- oops, I'm not good at that one!
I do try on the others too, and most kindnesses make me feel good as the giver.
Kerri, I like your words and look forward to more of them along with your photos in 2010.
This pic is wonderful, hubby must be a kind man for that bird to trust him, and you captured it beautifully, as you always do.

CG said...

Very true. You have a gift with words as well as with your camera!

Your words are so true but this photo make a thousand words.
Amazing capture.

Kindness - something we all could practice.
This is a fantastic image!

Kerri,
As a lover of words, I'm so pleased to know that I'll be hearing more of what's tucked inside of you, that photography doesn't show. Noy everyone that loves phtography, as you do, and is as good at it as you are, has a gift for words. Thus, some of these photographers use their art to express themselves. You, Kerri, are good at both, and that is rare. I call you doubly blessed!

Looking forward to seeing a deeper view of you this year. Words can draw pictures in our mind, and serve to waken our hidden or blocked senses.

It's like knocking on a door. It's an invitation for two-way communication. Where a shared photo without words - limits the viewer's experience to only what the see, rather than what they see and hear. It has a deeper impact. But then, I'm a lover of words

I'm so impressed that your husband actually got this bird to sit uopn his hand and eat. That speaks very strong words about the gentle quality of this man that chooses to share his life with you.

That makes you triplely blessed! :)

We should have a kindness law!
I would like to feed my birds that way!

Showing my kindness and consideration would, no doubt, be good for us all.

Great shot of the Nuthatch.

Tom said...

A really nice picture Kerri, I could not agree more about 'Kindness'... infact I'm going to start the day with a smile and pass it on to one and all.. :O)

Jayne said...

What a sweet, sweet photo Kerri, and I love that you have added "words" as it makes your post even sweeter. Indeed, kindness is something we should all strive for each and every day. :c)

Scriptor Senex said...

What a great picture and a delightful post. Thank you.

Country Girl said...

What a wonderful world, indeed. Beautiful capture on this one, Kerri.

Mary said...

Amen....I'm all for a kinder world. Lovely photo.

Karin said...

How true. How difficult sometimes to show (especially when someone is cutting me with his car). But you are absolutely right and it makes me want to try a little bit harder. Beautiful pictures.

Lovely post and a fabulous picture! I've had the cutest white breasted nuthatch visiting my feeders the last few days!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

It would indeed be a better world! I think if we were all kind there would be no more wars. What could be better than that?

dutchbaby said...

I wish to imagine this kind world you describe. It's wondrous! As is your photograph of the kind hand and the trusting nuthatch.

Cindy said...

What wonderful words of wisdom. Also, the nuthatch is one of my most favorite bird friends, I'm so envious :)

Willard said...

A beautiful photo, and wonderful sentiments.

Dick said...

Great picture and beautiful words, I guess I need to remember them more often.
I wish you a great and happy new year.

Appalachian Lady said...

Great photo of the nuthatch. I agree-- Being kind would change the world and we can start with ourselves. Looking forward to reading more along with your fabulous photos.

Valerie said...

What a precious birdie!

Wonderful picture!

eileeninmd said...

Awesome capture, Kerri! Your words are so true, everyone should be kinder, it would be better world.

DeniseinVA said...

This is a great post Kerri, not only for this sweet, sweet photograph but the sentiments that go with it are very special. Kindness is a gift not only given to others but in doing so is a gift to oneself. Thank you for reminding us.
