Be a Do-Gooder in 2012!
First of all, thanks for bearing with my little rant about resolutions yesterday. Do you ever have one of those days where you look back and wish you would have just “smiled and waved?” When people ask you “How are you?” and you accidentally tell them how you’re ACTUALLY doing? Yeah…that may have been yesterday for me. I’m a verbal worker-outer, and some days I should just post a sign on my front door that says “Come on in and buy some pretty stuff, but try NOT to talk to the crazy lady behind the counter. Come back tomorrow during regular business hours if you’re looking for idle chit-chat.” Luckily, we’ve met before, and you’ve probably come to expect a little philosophical dumping from me from time to time. :)
Today, I am happy to announce that I revisited that
January Winter TO DO list, and I crossed off the first item: Put away Christmas. Good job me! (sad to see it go, but with Three Kings Day–which we call “Little Christmas” in our house–here at last, it is time to say farewell until next year!)
Speaking of “Good Jobs”–that’s what I really want to post about tonight: doing GOOD THINGS! One of the sweet blogs I lurk about on has launched a campaign for 2012 that I know you will want to get in on. Fans of Hello Bluebird are most certainly fans of all that is good and kind in the world, and this is just a fun way to make a daily commitment to doing something good for someone or something, big or small, simple or grand. You can read all about it over on Pip’s sight, and let me know in the comments if you’ve posted something you’d like to share with us! It could just be a note in the comments, or a link to your own blog, or a photo on flickr, or wherever your favorite online place is to share! I’ll be posting a quick note each day, and hope that you’ll want to play along!
My GOOD THING Numero Uno (since we missed a few days of the year, we’ll just skip ahead call it 6/365) : Took my kids to buy a snail after work. Sidenote: there weren’t actually any snails available, but we had a great time watching a dog-socializatin class at the pet store, and chatted with a really sweet older lady while we pet her beautiful German Shephard. Finn also had a blast playing with the ferrets, and wanted to “play ferret” as soon as we got home!
Good For : My family. We got to spend time together, meet a new person, pet some pups, and spark Finn’s imagination!
What bits of Goodness were YOU up to today??
