19 Elul: Kindness

A kind man does himself good, but a cruel one troubles his own flesh. - Mishlei (Proverbs) Chapter 11

The highest form of wisdom is kindess - Talmud

I pray to G-d asking for His help so that I can be kind, compassionate and generous.  I know so many people who fit that description.  They seem to have an endless supply of energy and resources to give others. 

I feel guilty because I don't feel I have that kind of energy.  I am focusing it all at home.  I guess that means I get to practice kindness, compassion and generosity on a much smaller scale.  It will be worth it, if one day my son gets recognized as a Mensch.
