Days 8 & 9 – Weekend Kindness Quotes

These are two of my all-time favorite quotes on kindness: Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. ~Scott Adams When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also…
