Mother Teresa said,

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor…let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.

Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.”

Last week, I shared my story, “Make Room for One More,”  and I challenged us to look outside ourselves.

It’s truly the simple things that impact the lives of others: a kind word, an invitation for coffee, a plucked wildflower bouquet left on a door step, a scribbled note that humbly communicates, “I care.”

As you think of your meal planning this week and make your delicious desserts, is there one person that you can communicate kindness to through a shared slice of cheesecake?

I’ll start.


Because I truly know it’s the little things that are the biggest things in life.

Won’t you join me? Think of the ripple effect that just one person creates by truly communicating kindness in unexpected ways.
