That “Kind” of Day

Remember the old saying “But teacher, the dog ate my homework?”. The modern equivalent is this “my post was eaten by WordPress/my computer”. Yes I hit save and yes I tried the backdoor. No I can’t rescue it so here is the short version.

It’s world kindness day. It should be our default but somehow it’s not what we choose. So today let’s try hard.

Hearts that beat to the tune of kindness

can change the rhythm of the world.




I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

    1. Donna, It’s those little acts “at our fingertips” that do so much good. The picking up of the phone, shooting off an email, a doorway visit or a letter in the mail. Reaching out during this difficult time is so important. Thanks for engaging here but more importantly I can tell you are out there IRL doing good.
      Take care and stay safe. Bernie


  1. I’m the “kind” of blogger who always drafts my posts in Word before cutting and pasting it into WordPress. I’ve never lost a post like you did, thank goodness, but having a draft that I could go back to has helped me more than once. I’m sorry that happened to you but I’m glad that you were kind enough to resurrect at least some of the original. Every day should be kindness day!


    1. Janis, It’s often not the words that are the issue but the insertion of the pictures that gets me. This time it was the words. I hit save but it was NOT there. Maybe I will go back to using word or perhaps that Canva blog post that I’ve seen but not used. Oh well it’s not like it was an earth shattering blog although it was frustrating and that was also the start of no pictures loading on all three of my sites. Ah technology. Take care and thanks for taking the time to stop in and comment. Stay safe.


  2. Kindness should be required teaching in our schools. Nothing goes further than kindness, especially these days. Wear a mask, smile with your eyes, practice Safe Six, discuss divergent points without anger, give a concession speech, stop firing non yes men. Oops, how did that sneak in there? Thanks for the kindness reminder Bernie. Allan

  3. Such an important message every day, and especially on World Kindness Day, Bernie. Your message came through loud and clear this way! Boy, lots of people have been frustrated with WP lately. I almost always write out my post in Word and then copy it whole and paste it into WP for fine-tuning and publishing. I never thought about it before, but that might help out with the irritating situation you experienced today. Remember to be kind to yourself! 😏

    1. I was kind to myself — that’s why I accepted the second attempt! I used to do Word when I first started by I mostly blog from my phone (often using dictation) and don’t have word. It seems when I am on my computer it (WP) is more glitchy. I did a little less kindness activities than planned but it’s a long story and I am not convinced I can blog it! Thanks for engaging with me here on this subject.

    1. Never sure if it’s my computer or WP. It’s not the first time. I used to compose it word and copy it over but with the upgrades it seems a lot less glitchy these days. Oh well no real harm done. Hope you’ve had a good day and done some random acts of kindness. Thanks for dropping in.

    1. Did you smile because the computer ate my homework 🤣? Kindness is in your DNA Elaine and I know that you routinely do little acts of random kindness to those around you so bless you. Thanks for stopping by and engaging with me here. Stay a safe six away!
