Hello, I created this blog in memory of my Grandmother and my Mother. If you have visited the tab Meet Patti you know I grew up on a farm in North Dakota. Each summer for many summers I went to the small town of Scobey, MT to stay several weeks with my Grandmother. She played the organ at the Lutheran Church down the alley. I have fond memories of walking to church together each Sunday morning. One summer when I went to visit after church she said we have one more place to go. We walked down the alley to the Catholic Church and entered the back door and walked up the back stairs to the organ/choir loft. The priest had come to her home to ask her to play the organ in his church, after his organist passed away, but to not let anyone know he had a Lutheran playing the organ in his Catholic church. My Grandmother always said the most important characteristic was to learn to be kind to others. She said playing the organ for those Catholic parishoner’s was a kind gesture. And my mother always said that if you were confronted by individuals at work or in the community that were not nice, we should kill them with kindness and it would throw them off base.
So it is with this Kind Deed Community blog that I dedicate it to the two most influential women in my life, my Grandmother Clara and my Mother Miriam.
I invite you to join me in creating a kinder community and world by sharing yourself through one kind deed a day. Join me on this journey as we learn from each other the kindnesses shared by our Kind Deed Community. I have met incredible individuals who I will be interviewing the end of each month. You will want to stay tuned to meet them and hear their life journeys and stories helping others. We will have one kind deed per day shared in this blog, fun contests and some with traveling prizes, books to consider reading and in near future an action based kindness calendar to keep track of the kind deeds you share during your life journey each month.
So stay tuned to the wonderful caring individuals you meet along the way in our Kind Deed Community.
