Doug Mirams's curator insight, April 23, 2013 6:28 PM

Great story told via Twitter about a Skokie Public Library going above and beyond to help a client study. They brought her a coffee right to her study table.

Thanks to @mickjacobsen and Toby Greenwalt (@thanalogdivide) for drawing my attention to this great act of kindness.

Judith Kavanaugh's insight:

This is from my friend Arabella's blog.  I included it among hope and kindness because a simple hug may make the difference between health and failing among my Senior friends.  Who else do you know who may be touch deprived?

Tapping into Self-Compassion to Help Ease Everyday Suffering

Tapping into Self-Compassion to Help Ease Everyday Suffering | Hope and Kindness | Scoop.it
There is never a good reason not to treat yourself with kindness and compassion.

 

When I posted my last article, “8 Things I Miss as a Result of Chronic Pain and Illness,” I wasn’t planning to write a follow-up. But it became clear within hours of posting it that the piece had struck a chord with many readers. People began sharing the many losses they were feeling as the result of their health limitations. Others said they cried as they read my list because it tapped into their own feelings of deep loss.

 

By the end of the day, I began to feel that the piece had left some people feeling worse than they had before reading it, even though my intent was to acknowledge how things are for me in a way that I thought might help all of us accept our life as it is.
