Cultivate Kindness

Spring arrived earlier this week and we are dusting off our gardening tools and playing in the dirt again!  Oh, we just love this time of year around here in the Velvet Lime Girl's studio!  The garden begins to come to life as the little seedlings we nurtured through the previous weeks are planted tenderly into the soil. It's a busy time of cultivating in the garden too and it made us think of other things that we can cultivate in our lives.  Things like kindness... that quality of being friendly, generous and considerate.
Just like garden seedlings, kindness can be cultivated, tended, and developed until it becomes fully developed in our lives. And oh, what a beautiful sight that is!  Far more beautiful than any flower garden or vegetable patch. Kindness brings a beauty to all the terrain around it.
The people touched by kindness are just never the same...they bloom!
So, we hope you'll cultivate a little kindness today into your life and the lives of those around you.

Playing in the dirt,
The Velvet Lime Girls
