Good morning! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Luckily we did not get any of the cold weather the weathermen predicted. Although, now I see that the forecast has been revised and we will have some frigid weather this week. I guess it is time to pull out the winter coats.
This week is my 48 birthday! I guess I am supposed to feel old but to be honest, age has always been just a number to me. I guess I am lucky because I have never had any of the angst that many people have about growing old, perhaps because in my mind I am still 29?
I have never really been a fan of gifts, weird I know but true none the less. Anyway this week I am doing a few things for others as a gift(s) to myself.
One, is that each day this week I am baking a different birthday cake and giving it away to five different people. One to a friend who does not like to bake but loves sugar, one to a favorite resident at the Alzheimer’s home where I volunteer, one to my UPS man, one to a single mom who works at a restaurant I frequent and the last I have to yet to decide.
Another is that I am going to make a conscious effort to preform 48 random act of kindness over the next week. I have seen this idea on Pinterest and other blogs and I think it is such a great idea I want to try it for myself.
I am still compiling my list with things like taking my elderly neighbors’ dog for walks, writing thank you notes to people who have made a significant impact on my life, etc. but I would welcome any and all suggestions if you have some. And if you have done the same sort of thing on your birthday let me know how it worked for you.
I hope that you have a wonderful week. Stay safe and warm!
