My very first ATC (artist trading card)! These things are tiny and quite a challenge to paint!! But Daniel had gotten a little ATC package of sample papers and, of course, I took them and am painting on them now... (Daniel's art supply cubby is my favorite store!)
She decided that she would live her life with kindness.

The topic of kindness has been on my mind as of late. The older I get, the more important simple kindness seems to become to me. Not just acts of kindness, but being kind in my thoughts.
I used to be quick and sometimes harsh in my judgement of others, and often ruthless in my judgement of myself. Over the years, I've come to realize that we all carry our past and try to protect our wounds and underneath it all, we just want to be loved.
What do you think about this? How kind are you with yourself? Frankly, that is the hardest for me. How about you? I'd love to know...
And, my kind friends, I hope to visit all your blogs today!!
