Today ends our month of focusing on Step 5–Make haste to be kind. I’ll close the month by thanking two wonderful bloggers for kindly giving me awards. Katy at Superman Sammy and Beliza at a series of random thoughts have honored me by giving me the Good Bloggers Pay It Forward award.
Accepting the award only requires linking back to the givers, and passing the award on to five other bloggers. Katy added a nice touch which made me all the more pleased to accept the award and pass it on. She asked her recipients to “include a link to an organization, individual, group, or anyone who might benefit from others knowing about their needs.”
So I’ll start with that. Edwards Center is a wonderful organization providing services to adults with developmental disabilities. I hope you will check out their website and see what all they do. There is a short video on the site as well as other descriptions of the services they provide. Out of every dollar donated, ninety cents goes directly to services for clients. Whether you donate or not, I hope you will enjoy learning about this amazing organization.
And now I’m delighted to pass this award on to five blogs I know you will enjoy, if you aren’t already.

I hope you have had a good month developing habits of kindness. Here is one of my favorite quotations, and the obvious inspiration for Step 5.
Life is short, and we have but little time to gladden the hearts of those who travel this way with us. Oh, be swift to love. Make haste to be kind. –Henri Frederic Amiel
10 Steps to Finding Your Happy Place (and Staying There) is a program to help us develop habits to grow a joyful spirit. Many of us sabotage our happiness by habits that we might not even be aware of. Identifying and changing these habits can build a reservoir of well-being to enhance our happy times and sustain us during challenging times.
