“Peace begins with a smile.”
~Blessed Mother Teresa
The art of kindness starts within me
Ready smiles to radiate
–PEACE to the weary
-A boost to the discouraged
-pure sunshine to the sad
Mainly, it is an opportunity to stay disciplined
To master this art of giving away something small as a heart-warming smile
A simple and free gift I cannot buy at any price
However, once acquired and given freely
I have the power within
To radically transform those around me
I can give hope, courage, love
And best of all…
To calm a storm of turmoil and
Embrace the heart with a hug
The art of kindness
Is within me…
Together, we can harness its power–
let us go forth sharing our smiles

Every month, members from a community called, , offer up at least one post a month specifically to peace.
Host, KOZO, suggested January posts be about our own practice on kindness that hopefully lead into a more peace-filled existence.
St. Therese of Lisieux once said, “Let us not be justices of the peace, but angels of peace.”
“We can make a difference–right here, right now…to create more peace in the world in 2013…” please visit We Can Make A Difference… for details on becoming an angel of peace.
