On windy, cold days, it’s comforting to handle old belongings. Seeing and working with familiar items brings calm to stormy inner feelings brought on by the outside storm. I brought out three planter vases styled after animals because they are some of my favorites. They added visual warmth to the severe cold of a nippy February day.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes a former president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ezra Taft Benson. “One who is kind is sympathetic and gentle with others: He is considerate of others’ feelings and courteous in his behavior. He has a helpful nature. Kindness pardons others’ weaknesses and faults. Kindness is extended to all–to the aged and the young, to animals, to those low of station as well as the high.”
