More giving fun!
Today, I surprised a couple by paying for their lunch (you can read the details here, if you like!), and I've got to tell you, I am absolutely loving this 29 Day Giving Challenge. So many people are talking about how bad the economy is & all I can think is that I want to brighten a few people's day & maybe they'll pass it along in their own lives. And if not, isn't it enough to know that I made someone feel a little special? A little more secure? A little less stressed? I sure think it's totally worthwhile. I encourage everyone who reads this to think about how you can give today, tomorrow, and the day after that. Just keep your eyes peeled for opportunities to give something -- anything -- a worn coat you don't wear any more, a smile, a hug, a flower, a greeting card, a dollar to a charity, a cup of coffee, a meal for the person behind you in the drive-through -- big or small, it doesn't really matter. What matters is how it subtly changes the world for the better. Tomorrow, I think I'm going to give away another customized mini-album, 'cause it just feels good!
