So? How did you share the love over the past week? I had a lot of grand ideas, and not much success with my random acts of kindness.
I made a pan of cookies and sent them with my husband on Friday to work, for no reason. He said they were gone by noon and plenty of people said they were really good, so that’s something.
I made a second pan so he could have some, since he only got 1 before the container was empty. I also didn’t take the rather large cookie away from the baby when daddy handed it over. I think that was a rather big kindness, personally, she ate every crumb and pointed for more!
I’ll be sending cupcakes or a cake with my husband for his birthday on the 29th. Oh wait, he doesn’t have a birthday this year. Well then, I will be sending him cupcakes this month for a birthday he won’t have until 2012.
I did send 2 greeting cards winging their way to 2 of my closest friends. The ones I confide baby stuff, husband stuff, and personal stuff to. I have other friends, but they don’t get the personal stuff as much. Hopefully the cards will brighten their days when they get there!
I let my husband play his video game for a couple of hours last night unimpeded. I didn’t even grumble much when he cussed the game out.
My mom and dad came down to supposedly help pack stuff for us today. I decided it would be nicer to just have a visit, so I told them not to worry about it. They did ‘watch’ Keeley for us while Matt loaded the truck with a bunch of ‘unnecessary’ items that are going out to our barn. I was shoving suitcases full of summer clothes, giant teddy bears whisked out of Keeley’s room, books, etc. toward the door while he was loading the truck. So that was kind of a random act of kindness. Of course watching her consists of attempting to read to her while she runs around, pulling on her clothes and saying please for random items she knows she can’t have. I think them coming to visit us was definitely an act of kindness, even if it wasn’t as random as it could have been. They offered to take us out to dinner and we refused, we had food, and since we’re all doing a ‘new house’ type of thing (they are undertaking a huge remodel of 100 year old house), it’s nicer to not have to pay for take out, I think. Either way, it was a great visit and they got some nice one on one time with Keeley. Click on Mr. Linky to sign up. ** Wendy is hostess next week! Thanks Wendy!
