To me an attitude of kindness involves having an open mind, heart and eyes all day every day to ways I can be a positive influence to others, everywhere I go.

I was catching up with a dear friend and we began with lunch from KFC (I purchased a healthy wrap). While waiting in line, a bunch of teenage boys turned to a friend (also a teenager) who was standing to the right of me. They asked him for twenty cents, and he didn't seem to have any for them.

I thought to myself, "I have twenty cents." I took out my wallet and took out a dollar coin and twenty cents, and placed it on the table by them. "Here you go guys" I said with a smile. They laughed and smiled back at me with the most genuine smile and words of gratitude.

I couldn't stop smiling after that.
