Today is my birthday (for 4.5 more hours… 🙂 )
Although I woke up this morning feeling a little glum. I had high hopes for Christmas/Valentine’s Day/my birthday this year after meeting someone very special. Heartbreakingly it didn’t work out, and I have been feeling it intensely lately.
So I woke up with that on my mind.
Although I soon – thankfully – came to my senses. I didn’t want today to be about me – I wanted to make it a special day for those around me. So I dedicated today as a day to perform extra acts of kindness.
And I had so much fun doing it!!! ♥
I unfortunately didn’t get the opportunity to perform as many as I was hoping to, however I did get to:
♥ Visit my Great Uncle in the nursing home. I gave him my full presence and attention, and listened very carefully to the stories he had to tell me. It was really the most lovely visit I have had with him.
♥ Pay anonymously for a cup of coffee for an elderly person at a cafe.
♥ Buy lots of dog toys for my favourite doggy friend:
♥ Buy my brother a notebook I thought he would like.
♥ Buy my nephew a cute pair of pyjama’s.
♥ Strike up a conversation with a lovely lady in Target. We spoke about our joy of doing jigsaw puzzles.
♥ Buy my son a few little presents that I thought he would like.
It was a real blessing for me to have the opportunity to perform these acts of kindness for those I love and care about – and the people in the community around me.
