The Art of Kindness

Do you think artistic ability runs in families? How about a volunteer spirit? After seeing this video of artist Gretta Kruesi, we do! Gretta is not only an amazing L.A. artist, but she’s the inspiration for the character Carson in bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe’s new book, The Summer’s End. (And not just the inspiration–if she looks a little familiar here, take a second look at the cover model!)

What small acts of kindness have you experienced (or done for others)? Was that impulse inspired by your family? Tell us in the comments!
