I don't know what it is, but I love my birthday. No gifts or even an acknowledgement is necessary...Ok, yes it is nice to be remembered but it's not required. I just always feel good that I wake up to live another day, month, and year. This is a pretty big one too. I am welcoming 50 with open arms. Ok...the AARP card was obviously a mistake, but I had a good laugh anyhow! I'm grateful YOU all come and share in my life here in my little corner of the web. I have so much to celebrate this year that I'm just going to pay it forward. I thought what better way to celebrate a half of century, than with
50 Acts of Random Kindness
I've watched fun u-tube videos and have written my own random acts to celebrate:
Give 5 lottery tickets to strangers, 10-post it notes with positive messages taped to public bathroom mirrors, 5 volunteer days, leave 5-$1.00 bills on vending machines with "Snack on me" note, tape quarters on gumball/candy machines, 5-YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL-YES YOU cards, leave in women's dressing room, 1-donate towels and blankets to pet organization, 1-buy elderly couple dessert, 1-place chalk on sidewalk, 1-buy coloring book and crayons & leave for person behind me, 1-donate blood
1-bake cookies and take to local fire dept., 2-"TAKE WHAT YOU NEED" tabs, 1-leave flowers in the unhappy neighbor lady's mailbox, 1-leave book in public place, 1-let someone go ahead of me in line, 1-tape change to pay phone (if I can find one) 1- pay for coffee for person behind me.
1 CONTEST..3 little gifts to 3 followers!
I found all kinds of fun printables to cut out & attach to the goodies I'll giving away throughout the rest of the month. By the way RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS is the week of Feb. 10-16th. Can you imagine our world if one person did just 1 random act of kindness? Are you IN?
I've put together 3 little tokens of my appreciation for 3 random readers. All you need to do is leave me comment and tell me your thoughts on celebrating YOU and your birthday. I'll pick a winner Sat. and announce the winner Sun. Jan. 19th.
