Kindness - The 13th Good Word in the "Good Words" Project
The "Good Words Project"
Jo Goldsmith Jo "Grace" Goldsmith started the "Good Words Project" to help people think and practice using the words she gives us to promote 'understanding' and 'kindness' the 12th and 13th words.
When I made the pledge to Grace to write a poem for every 'good' word she gave us each week, I had no idea how challenging it would be or how rewarding.
I am grateful to Grace for giving us these good words to practice and living by.

What is Kindness?
It is sympathetic words
A simple pat on the hand
To let someone know you understand
The many different ways
Of Kindness you can show
They are the seed of thoughtfulness
That you sow
This is the easiest word of all
It is to catch or steady someone
So they don't fall
Kindness is a gentle touch
When just a smile can mean so much
It will show you really care
When the touch says you are there
Kindness is a night light in the dark
To wash away bad dreams before they start
And to light the way
Into a little one's heart
Kindness is simply to understand
With compassion, for our fellow man
And to be there, when they need a helping hand
And let them know they are not alone in this lonely world
The Good Words Project.
Will you use and practice the good words?
Kindness is 'Magic'
