I hope I have some of these traits. I do share from my garden and from my kitchen. Always ask if I can bring something, maybe my orange-yogurt bread or my lemon poppyseed cake. I try to keep in touch with friends and I still send Christmas cards. Give to the food bank. Help my children. Donate to charities. Offer to help out with a neighbor's dog. At work, I mentored junior employees, as I had once been mentored.
As a published writer, something I do if offer to read other writer's work and critique it--gently. I always wish someone had done the same for me.
We give of our time, money and our expertise not expecting anything in return. It is simply being human, sharing what we have. My heart breaks when I see the refugee families from the Middle East, the young children, always clean, the adults well-dressed and well-spoken, driven from their native land with nothing. We can show them our random acts of kindness by a simple welcome. Would that be so difficult? I hope not.
