The Start of Something New...

Hello (tap, tap) is anyone there?  Just in case someone is, let me introduce myself.  My name's Rachel and I've joined you out there in blog land wanting to write about everything and nothing at the same time. I've always got random thoughts running through my head and I really need a place to just dump it all out, hence this lovely little blog.
Actually, I've really had one particular subject in my head for quite sometime now...KINDNESS. Large, small, random, or common acts of kindness...I can't get it out of my head.  Sometimes I'm amazed at the genuine acts of kindness I see out there in the world while other times I'm saddened by the lack of kindness out there. 
With that it mind, I've set up this blog to be my daily reminder that a little kindness everyday goes a long way.  And if you're reading this, I hope I can remind or inspire you to show some kindness to a loved one, a friend or a total stranger.  I'm not talking some big generous gesture every day, heck, even I know my limits!  I'm talking simple acts of kindness, like saving your neighbor's newspaper from the lawn sprinklers or holding the door open for the person behind you at the coffee shop or telling a loved one how proud you are of them.  We all lead such busy lives that I think we sometimes forget that the smallest of gestures can have a large impact on a person.  So please join me on this adventure to spread some joy out there!
