“Balance is the

perfect state

of still water.

Let that be our model.

It remains quiet within

and is not disturbed

on the surface.”


~ Confucius


When we reflect upon kindness;

mayhem, chaos, and hysterical

are words that rarely come to mind.

Happy, joyous, serene, peaceful, content,

and maybe, sometimes, a little giddy or jovial

are words that best describe doing the will of

the Spirit of Nature.

Today, reflect the calm, throw no stones,

and don’t roil the still waters.

Kindness keeps the balance in our lives.

Kindness is the beginning of a life filled with love.

    Still waters run deep, my mom quoted from somewhere when she described the attributes of a quiet person.

      One cannot think when their mouth is moving.( or their keyboard is typing). A quiet person is thinking, gathering confidence and strength, so that when it becomes time to act, their actions are quick,fast and more powerful, just like the swift waters below the calm surface. Love, hugs and prayers…ME and the Boss

      P.S. Isn’t it amazing, the older we get the smarter our Mothers become and how it is more often we quote them to simplify our lives.

        totally agree Michael. It is also said that by the time our children think us (parents) right, they realised they were wrong (in their youth). oh i hope to be their “smart” mother in time to come 😀 Am struggling with my own demons and you really help with your kindness blog each time 😀 Thank you!

        For sure! After my mom came to live with me in her last years, we just sat and talked and loved our time together. I wish that could happen with more people. My mom and I have something very special and I’ll never regret having given up personal time to take care of her needs the last six years of her life.
