every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven
–henry ward beecher
In the wake of a devastating tragedy for a young mom in my neighborhood, I’ve witnessed true charity today. I’ve witnessed kindness and generosity, selfless and pure, extended by women in the community. By women who don’t even know this mother of 3 small children who lost her husband unexpectedly last night. It has warmed my heart to see how people come together full of love and support and acts of service. It has given me renewed faith in the true goodness of people, and in the remarkable power of that true goodness. There is such power and happiness in being kind. Give it a try.
