It's Better To Give


My sweet, sweet friend, Robyn (MixMingleGlow) did the most wonderful birthday idea recently and I told her then, "totally stealing that." Robyn spent her 38th birthday doing 38 Random Acts of Kindness (RAOK) for strangers and encouraged her friends and readers to do an RAOK for someone, too. Is that brilliant or what?

Well, today is my day. I've officially been here 38 years today and hope to get to stick around for many more! In the meantime, we can all make this day about other people.

Now I can't promise to get to 38 Random Acts of Kindness personally by the end of the day, but I can tell you I'm going to do them within the next 38 days. I'd love to have you join me.

Do a little something unexpected for someone, and if you do, leave a comment here or on my Facebook page. It was so fun to watch along as Robyn posted what she did on Facebook and I can't wait for her big recap post on MMG!
Wanna come play?

Happy Birthday Amy! Hope that you have a wonderful day. What a great idea..making hot chocolate with LOTS of mini-marshmallows for the neighborhood kids playing in the 2ft of snow (and still falling!) outside my window.
