Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. How many times are we gifted with newcomers to our meetings?

What can you do to make a newcomer feel welcome to your meeting? Let us not forget that all-important first hug.

I remember mine; do you remember yours? It felt good, I’ll bet. So welcome the newcomer and let them know they are home. –One Day At A Time | More…

Kindness is among the gifts we can most easily spread among others. Our kindnesses are assets, which return unexpected dividends when we invest them in the happiness of others.

Kindness is the very basis of love. It softens the most severe anger and gladdens the hardest hearts.

No kindness is too small to win and hold the affection of others because it is made up of gentleness, love, generosity, unselfishness, and caring. –Today’s Gift 29/06 | More…

Sometimes we forget that we’re all special people who are in each other’s’ lives for a purpose. Our Higher Power has guaranteed each of us love, growth, and support.

In return, we’re expected to treat our fellow travellers respectfully and courteously. Abrupt or harsh comments put people on the defensive and strain communication.

Then none of us feels the support and love we need from one another. –In God’s Care/Karen Casey | More…

Make yourself a blessing to someone. Someone will be helped today by our kindness.

The real gift, though, is to ourselves. We are healed in our healing of others.  –Each Day a New Beginning/Karen Casey | More…

We are not, by nature, solitary creatures. God gave us people to be with. And as an incentive to be kind to one another, God made each of us a source of happiness for others. –In God’s Care/Karen Casey | More…
