List five kind things you do for yourself.
I write – my blog, my journal, a few forums.

I get manicures and pedicures
I finally decided to see a therapist – someone to talk to – just for me, about me.
List five kind things you do for your closest friend, partner or child.
I stopped bitching about doing those household chores that everyone else hates doing – for the most part I don’t mind them. I was standing on a silly principle.
I cat sit, dog sit, reptile sit, baby sit – hah – I put babies last LOL
I keep my opinions to myself when it comes to my son and his wife. If you ask me I’m going to tell you but I do not butt in.
I am much nicer to my daughter-in-law’s family than they deserve because I love her.
I tell all my family that I love them - often.
List five kind things you have done for a stranger.
I put the carts away in the Stop ‘N Shop lot – especially if they’re about to slam into someone’s car.
I always let older folks, folks with small children ahead of me in line.
I vote in EVERY election – to me that’s being kind to America.
I do volunteer work.
I donate what I can to a few charities.
Be Kind Out There.
