Poetry Friday ~ Random Acts Of Kindness

17 May

Hi, everyone! 


Poetry_Friday-garden-The Writer Next Door-vashti quiroz vega-Vashti Q-poetry-RRBC

This week has been “Random Acts of Kindness” week at the Rave Reviews Book Club and I must tell you it’s been an amazing week filled with love, generosity, and numerous selfless acts. I’ve never been happier or more proud to be a member of the RRBC because I’m surrounded by extremely talented, kind, and unselfish people. I’d like to thank Nonnie Jules, the founder of the club, her supporting staff, Tweet Support Team, sponsors, and all the members that participated in this event and have shown me love all year round. A sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Your garden is beautiful, Vashti. ❤ I can see the well cultivated soil of a tender heart, deep roots with consistent loving care, the beauty of colorful flowers, and the delicious fruits of the labor. You love and are loved. Thank you for the lovely post and poem, and mention. ❤

    Vashti, a post brimming with kindness … the support of such friends makes anything and everything possible. 😀 I loved how you mentioned them incorporated into the list and I look forward to popping over to some new ones (to me!) Delightful poem by yourself and Longfellow’s analogy is just wonderful! 😀
