The art of kindness has not been lost, but sometimes it gets tucked away, especially during the holidays. There are so many errands to run, goodies to bake, gifts to wrap - that we forget the spirit of Christmas, sharing the good news of Jesus' birth with others by showing our love and generosity. When you take the time to encourage someone, it might be the small act that changes his or her entire life! Go the extra mile for someone in need - become involved in your community. The art of kindness is in you.
