  • This week’s Kindness Challenge is about forgiveness.  This can be a hard one but it’s worth it.  Sometimes the best way to be kind is to let it go when someone is not kind to you.   Forgiveness brings peace to you and a second chance to the other person. A win-win!

6th - blue (any shade), 7th - orange, 8th - black
