💜 Create to Donate 💜 #PayItForward

A patron of one of the local rescue ministries, came to me after noticing the decorations I'd made for our wedding last year (my husband and I donated them for use at their banquets). Learning that the patron and her husband were going to be having an upcoming fundraiser for their women's shelter, I told her that our donation would be table decorations. These were fun to make! I design as I go, so pieces develop along the way. I admire all of you so much for your talent and creativity. It's so good to know that there are others like me who find comfort in their artistry.

How does this work? Feels like my 1st day at school or something #Awkward #lost

Ok I'm hoping this is the right place to come to, I'm not sure what's allowed to be shared where & who with? I'm just basically at the end of my rope and looking for people who can relate, or at least not judge too harshly for my condition. Um yeah ok get in touch if you'd like. Messed up as I am I still want to help others who might feel this way #PayItForward

How can you include a random act of kindness in your routine each day? #52SmallThings

Think about your day and how you can make room for some joy and kindness to brighten up someone else’s. How can you make room in your routine? Maybe you can offer someone a small bottle of hand sanitizer or a packet of hand sanitizing wipes. Or maybe you volunteer some time to read to kids during your library’s virtual events. There are plenty of “small” ways to spread smiles — even if you can’t always see them.

Share your suggestions with the community below!

What is the kindest thing a stranger has done for you? #52SmallThings

Think about a time where someone you didn’t know did something nice for you. Maybe they held the door open for you while your hands were full or helped you carry your groceries your car. Or maybe they helped pay for your bus ticket when you realized you didn’t have exact fare.

Share a random act of kindness that stands out in your memory in the comments below.

“The last kind thing I did for someone was…”  #52SmallThings

What was the last nice thing you did for someone? Maybe you grabbed something off the top shelf for someone who couldn’t quite reach. Or maybe you bought your kids (or your parents!) a treat for making it through the first day back to school (however that looks this year).

Share your most recent act of kindness in the comments below.

Simplicity..

Today someone asked me “How is your dad doing?”. It may seem simplistic to most but it meant a great deal to me. No one outside of family members ever asks me about any personal aspect of my life with genuine concern or without selfish intentions or motives behind their “concern”. Thank you to that awesome person! I pray that blessings are gifted to you and your family are 100x greater than the blessing of temporary meaning you gifted me! 🙏🏾❤️
