The Gift of Kindness

We are sharing The Gift of Kindness during the month of December at The Tree of Life Church.

An act of kindness is a selfless act performed by a person or persons wishing to either assist or cheer up another individual … to do something nice for another, just because.

Some Acts of Kindness:
1. Give bouquet of homegrown flowers to a neighbor or friend.
2. Share your homegrown vegetables.
