Not a lot of thoughts crossing the threshold this morning, but the idea of kindness and compassion.  We get so tied in knots over what is happening in the world, we forget that kindness will untie most of them.  The news bombards us with world crises and we tighten up and become desensitized as we crawl into our hole.  Come out and try kindness and compassion and everything will soften and so will we.  As always:  love one another with kindness, compassion, and also try tolerance.
