12 Days of Kindness: Helping those close at hand

12 Days

After last year’s popular 12 Acts of Kindness blog series, we have returned again with lots of ideas for you to put a bit of kindness into your corner of the world.  Check this space often for new inspiration as we head toward 2014.

Sometimes, it is hard to be kind to the people closest to us – our family. We see them every day, and know them so well, that we forget that our own family deserves our kindness.

Keep kindness in the family. Small acts of kindness can have a big impact. Do a chore that usually falls to another family member. Cook a special meal for the whole family. Be especially patient – it can be so easy to roll your eyes or make a face when you find a towel on the floor, or that your brother forgot to take out the garbage – but refraining is actually an act of kindness. You might just find a happier home!
