I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of those people who participated in Be Kind to Humankind Week! As I had mentioned in my last blog entry, people who show an interest in promoting the week tend to just take the information about Be Kind to Humankind Week and run with it! Their sense of creativity is always great and word of the celebration reaches many people!
Thank you again and have a wonderful fall!
Valentine’s Day Soon Approaches…
“All love shifts and changes. I don’t know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all of the time.” -Julie Andrews
My husband of almost 32 years and I just recently went through some extremely difficult shifts and changes in our relationship. We separated for a while, but one day I read the Julie Andrews quote about love (quoted above), and it struck a cord in me…what she says is very true. Happily, my husband and I are reunited. We have jumped back on the carousel of married life and are reaching for the Golden Ring…our 50th wedding anniversary! I will be 71 and he 76 so we may have a good chance of making it to 50 years of marriage!!
“Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.” -Mark Twain
So; HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY to all, and try not to give up on a worthwhile marriage!!!
Live, Laugh, LOVE.
You Have to Laugh at Love, Because We All Love Laughter and We All Love Love!!
Well, another super successful year for Be Kind to Humankind! Thanks in part to HappyNews.com who featured BK2HK each and every day of its celebration! A special thanks to you HappyNews!
Of course kindness and kind deeds should be focused upon each and every year, all 356 days! I cannot emphasize that enough. I wrote a book which is all about BK2HK and its history. After all, it is over 22 years old now and there is a lot to write about. But once in text it is not a huge book at all. The book will be a rather small paper back, so it will be easy to carry, pick up and read randomly whenever you are in need of a little pick-me-up emotionally. Let’s face it, we all need a pick-me-up once in awhile! I plan on having the book published and ready for purchase by next spring. If not next spring, shortly there after. I will be sure to let you know when it is available for purchase! I hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. It is quite a story, considering that I started BK2HK when I was a young woman of 30 and here I am 52! I virtually seemed to have spent my entire adult life promoting kindness!
It has been, and still is well worth it.
Until the next time,
I’ve been saying for over 20 years that I am tired of the media’s hunger for broadcasting unpleasant news, news stories in poor taste and stories which glorify negative sensationalism. Most say we can either choose to watch these programs or simply turn to another station. However, television today is so inundated with foul language, foul behavior, and negative sensationalism that unfortunately there remains very few stations which provide excellent programming.
This is a testimonial by actor/producer Tim Robbins at the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Listen to Tim’s speech at NAB. He speaks what I feel.
The American Cancer Society held a “Relay For Life” on April 29, 2006 at the Chelsea Fairgrounds in Chelsea Michigan! They had a wonderful turnout and many “THANKS” goes out to all who participated! This was a “Kind Act In Action” if we ever saw one!
Below I have posted a few of the photos taken at the event. We were unable to include all participant’s photos, however we did manage to get quite a few nice pictures of the event.
Many thanks again!
