Litte drops of water, little grains of sand...little deeds of kindness, little words of love

~

My mother used to recite this little poem to us, when we were little…
a special sentiment…
encouraging and nurturing kindness, generosity and love,
reminding us to nurture ourselves and others
as we all travel through life together

~

little drops of water happily given gratefully received

~

Happily given…gratefully received…
kindness, nurturing and love…

    • Outward expression was encouraged, but I’m still learning to offer those to myself…it seems to be a bit easier to offer outwardly, rather than “inward”….the more I read about how beneficial that inward “giving” is, both for oneself and people around, the more I’m trying to nurture in that direction too. 🙂

        It’s a great gift to yourself and those around you to explore the “inward” more. As a culture, I think we are learning.
        Part of the learning is by example I think.
        Blessings and love-

    My (step)Dad used to recite this to me! I’ve only recently realised how tenderly he nurtured me, never too tired or too busy. Happily given and gratefully received indeed! Thanks for the memories ~ an excellent post! 🙂

    • What a special Dad…and what a precious memory of being nurtured so lovingly by him… each of you were probably “gifts” to each other. I’m happy to hear others heard this poem too…. 🙂

    Very nice! I was thinking all children should have programs in school that teaches them the value of kindness and respect as many households do not have nurturing parents. May we all be ripples of love and kindness.

  4. How lovely to have been raised with such a sweet awareness. This is so gentle and I want to teach it to my grandchildren. ox
