Kindness is shown in many ways. It is an act that brightens up someone’s life, brings some beauty into a neglected corner of the world, gives someone hope, or brings some peace to a troubled situation.

Today. let’s talk about adding beauty to your world.

Let’s participate in a Rancho Corvova park, river, creek or ocean cleanup. There is a cleanup scheduled on Saturday, April 18, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., with cleanup sites located throughout the Delta region (Sacramento) and in Rancho Cordova. … I am going to do this; I hope you join me!

There are many other ways to add beauty . . . 

  • Buy yourself flowers.
  • Chat with the cashier at the checkout or another person in line.
  • Dance to your favorite song.

Thanks to Shula Gossard for adding many items to this “beauty” list. She is great at adding beauty to her world.

I paint  walls at home and in my office festive colours. I recycle. And I do something not on the list. At work, there are two unused planters. I like to keep them full of perennials, annuals, and vegetables.  I just cleaned out the planters to get ready for Spring planting.
