Mothers Teaching Kindness

May 13th, 2012

5-13-12“I wish my mom was here to see this with us,” said a single mom with her daughter this Mother’s Day morning. Reading the phrases onThe Kindness Bus brought her to tears, tears of joy. If I had to make a guess, I would estimate  500 moms walked by The Kindness Bus today. Most weren’t as emotional, but most, if not all, took the time to read at least one phrase. The Kindness Bus was cozied up to the curb and the captive audience walking by and those waiting for up to 2 hours for a table at Snooze, a local restaurant were able to read the 400 or so phrases. At one time during the course of this day, I witnessed 6 moms reading The Kindness Bus with their children.
Watching this crowd wasn’t the best part, hearing the conversations was. Kindness, taught by moms on Mother’s Day is a time tested core value every day of the year. The Kindness Bus, with its messages, started some great conversations with mothers standing nearby and those watching from above.
A joyous Mother’s Day to all moms!
