The kindness of strangers. The kindly act of an acquaintance. The kind gesture from a colleague. I appreciate the products of kindness. Kind actions, words, expressions, gestures, and touch often create their own pay-it-forward momentum, thus initiating change in energy mass after energy mass.

I like to think that every life, of every species, has been touched at least once in their life time by an act of kindness and that, once touched, the act is passed forward.

My day was touched by words of kindness from someone. Her words lifted my spirits. I have never met this woman, which makes the kind gesture even richer.

Kindness is truly amazing stuff.
