Kindness

“If there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not deter or neglect it, as I shall not pas this way again.”

                                                                     William Penn

Month of Kindness

     Whenever I think of the virtue of kindness, I remember a movie called “Pay it forward”. The movie debuted  in 2000. It was based on an American novel of the same name. The main character was played by Haley Joel Osmun. The boy in the movie planned a charitable program based on the networking of recipients doing a favor for someone else. This concept was widely copied all over America during Christmas this year. There were stories of people buying coffee for others, large tips for waitresses, and people doing acts of kindness in memory of the 26 Sandy Hook (CT) victims.

     Have you ever thought if sending greeting cards to charities, hospitals, homeless shelters? I belong to a Woman’s Club called GFWC which stands for Global Federation of Women’s Club. There are several clubs in every town of the United States and around the world. The sole purpose of the club  members is to perform charitable works in their town and cities. We donate handmade cards to the VA Hospital. You never know how much your smile or gesture of kindness helps someone.

Adventures in Card-Making

Paper Adventures

Dear Fellow Crafters,

Over the weekend, while surfing the net, I came across a poem called Heartprints.
The poem by Praveen, can be found at http://www.poetryoflife.com/heartprints
I wanted to share it with you because not only did it inspire me, but it sums up the focus of Heartfelt Creations.

Heartprints

Whatever our hands touch –
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture,
On doorknobs, dishes, books,
As we touch we leave our identity.

Oh please where ever I go today,
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.
Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern.

May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter,
Or an anxious mother,
Or, perhaps, a dear friend!

I shall go out today
To leave heartprints
And if someone should say
“I felt your touch”,
May that one sense be … YOUR LOVE
Touching through ME.

This is to all the wonderful people
I have met!

I offer you my hand in friendship
So that when you reach out in times if need,
You can be certain that I’ll always be there.
When it returns to you,
You’ll know who’ll be your friends for life!

~Sallie
