In my front window, there is a small sign that says, "Promote random kindness. Engage in senseless acts of beauty."

On my desk, there is another small sign with a quote from Mahatma Ghandi that says, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

I wish to see more kindness, compassion, helpfulness, caring, good deeds, people with beautiful souls, etc. in the world. Hence, I try to be that way to others, to lead by my own behavior.

When I see others doing the same thing, I like to let them know that I appreciate their kindness to let them know it didn't go unnoticed and to encourage them to continue to be kind. I would like to thank and praise the kind souls at our local Chilly Willy's restaurant for providing a delicious free Thanksgiving Day meal to those who would not otherwise have one.

That kind act brought many smiles to people in our community and was certainly on act of beauty. I hope knowing there are still kind people in this crazy world of ours inspires us all to keep the kindness going in our lives.

Kudos to the chef and cook at Chilly Willy's!
