For the past week, after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I have struggled to find words. The post that I had originally planned to publish last Friday suddenly seemed so trivial... As a result, I avoided writing anything at all.
Then, yesterday I read about Ann Curry's #26Acts of Kindness.
Moments later, I read an email from a woman who was interested in purchasing the original or a print of my "Take What You Need" heart. Well, the original is now at home in Scotland, but I am happy to say that prints are free to anyone that wants one!
(More details further down...)
I believe wholeheartedly in the power of kindness. I believe that all acts of compassion, both big and small can make a difference... In just the space of a few minutes, my mission was clear and the voice that I thought was missing had returned.

In honor of Ann Curry's #26 Acts, and as a tribute to the precious lives lost in Newtown, I have added a kindness page on my blog where you will be able to find links to downloadable and printable kindness art including the "Take What You Need" poster above. It is my hope that these posters make their way to bulletin boards, lamp posts, and utility polls around the world.
p.s. You'll also find a link to my free downloadable and printable kindness cards!
(Another great way to spread good will.)
"If you do good, you feel good."
Wishing you a holiday season (and beyond...) that feels good!
