Hopes and Dreams




they cherish

one another’s


They are kind

to one another’s



~ Henry David Thoreau


Sometimes the kindest thing that we can do

is just to listen.

A smile, an approving nod of the head, a hug,

kindness without words.

Today, be a friend, listen closely and allow others to express

their hopes and dreams because when they are spoken aloud

God hears them too.

Kindness is respecting another’s hopes and dreams.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.

    Thanks for sharing these excellent words! Sometimes when we just listen and acknowledge, it’s as if we’ve shared a book’s worth of advice. It’s often just what the other person needs : )
