Heart Receiving

I told my friend the other day of how lucky I am to have so many kindnesses extended to me as of late.  I listed some of them, including her having bought me a coffee.  She said she “only” brought me a coffee.  She needs to know how much I value that thought, that action.

The size of a kindness

Is measured by the heart receiving.

Not in comparison to other kind acts

But only

In the size of the thought of a kindness

And the feeling received.

I am humbled by the thought

And giving

Of another.
