Today's acts of kindness forced me to love on my fellow travelers... sigh... A tough one for me. I hate it when people cut me off, or race down the exit lane only to dart back in to traffic a whole three cars further than they were before. So in addition to kindness, I had to show a little patience as well.
I didn't rush to try and get around the EXTREMELY slow person in front of me. I just waited for my turn. I let someone pull out of a parking lot in front of me and when two other people squeezed out as well, I just smiled. I was patient as another car took my parking spot and I told myself, I wanted to walk a bit tonight anyway...
Sometimes when the devil knows you are trying to do good, he thwarts you and tests you every step of the way. And he must see this challenge as a threat, because he is sending his arrows at me every time I turn around. Hang on, only 26 more days to go. :)
Be the kindness you want to see...
