Your kindness make you kinder.

Just as being kinder and gentler with a child makes one a kinder, gentler parent, being more attentive  photo refresco2.jpgand concerned about a spouse or partner makes that person, in turn, more attentive and concerned.

It doesn't happen all at once, and you can't send them the bill. You can't count or measure it. It has to be selfless and generous. Your kindness needs to be given because it makes you kinder, not because you want any further reward.
