“A SIMPLE Kind Gesture Can Mean The WORLD To The ONE You Share It With …” -Camilla Downs
This is Gorgeous George in Manchester England. George and his Mum, Cheryl, were out buying a card. Cheryl was having one of those days. The clerks saw how HAPPY a blue balloon made George and kindly gave it to him. This kindness spread to Cheryl and uplifted her spirits.
Simple acts of kindness have a ripple effect like that of a rock thrown in water …. it spreads and then eventually comes back to you ….
Wednesday night an eWomenNetwork friend bought me a box of Dorinda’s chocolates. Yesterday I took some of that chocolate with me to pick up Thomas from school and shared with a friend. She texted me afterwards and said, “Thank You.” She said she had just experienced a heartache the size of Texas and my kind gesture is EXACTLY what she needed.
Spread some SIMPLE KINDNESS today … it truly does ripple in unexpected and magical ways!!! -Camilla

In 2nd grade one of Lillian’s team in an IEP meeting said “We are still working on getting her to draw proportional people”. My response “I don’t care that she doesn’t draw proportional people. That’s something special and unique about her!”
Lillian was 7 or 8 years old then. She’s 10 years old now and her people are still different, they are unique, and they are AWESOME!!
Different iz Good . . . Disproportionate Stick People Are Good . . . Spread the Word! -Camilla Downs
