I was reading a post by Ilona at www.easydiet.blog about how little it costs to be a nice person, and it got me thinking about kindness. While researching synonyms, I found this interesting fact. The use of the word kindness has dropped consistently since the 1800s. If we haven’t said or used the word kindness, does it mean we haven’t been? Fortunately, there appears to be a resurgence in the word’s use.
