...and let kindness be your prayer


I heard a DJ on the radio say about her program, “This is who we are here. This is our message, our vibe, our reason for being, our prayer,” and I thought that was a pretty cool and comprehensive list. The small, nonprofit station, WPKN in Bridgeport, Conn., plays the most eclectic variety of music and talk that I’ve ever listened to on any radio station and I highly recommend them to you. Tune in or find them online and you can probably find something familiar that you like and also hear something new that you’ve never listened to.

But back to that list.

I’ve often quoted Annie Dillard who said, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” I like that because it reminds me that the little things we do add up to the one big thing – a life. Pay attention to the little things that you put out to the world. Let your sense of humor be your message. Let your smile be your vibe and your actions be your reason for being. Let kindness be your prayer.

Peace and love to you in the week ahead.
