Several times this week I have started to write a new post. Each time the subject seemed so insignificant when I think of the events of the past week.
There's one thing that I wanted to share with you today. I was reading about Anne Curry's (NBC) suggestion that we all perform 26 acts of kindness to honor the victims in last week's tragic shootings. I love this idea!
Yesterday I was in a Goodwill store and struck up a conversation with a lady who was buying two Nordic Ware cake pans. I was telling her how I use them for my pound cakes. She mentioned that she didn't think she had enough money to get both of them. Without giving it a second thought, I offered to help her out if she didn't. It turned out that she had enough to cover it but the feeling I had when I left that store was wonderful. As my dear mom used to say, "I was proud as a peacock". I'm thinking I'll take Anne's challenge a little further and perform at least one random act of kindness for every day in 2013. What do you think?
This is Melinda. I meet her last week when I was in Williamsburg with my sister and a friend. She was napping in the gift shop of one of my favorite restaurants. You can see that she takes her job as mascot very seriously.
I hope you all have a peaceful and joyous holiday season with your loved ones.
