In the past 168 days we've had a lot of people do things that help us out. The grandparents have been great with babysitting to give me those much needed breaks. A few neighbors have kept our lawn looking good. One of Chris' co-workers helped with some landscaping.
So, for the past 168 days I've been trying to pay it forward. (When I catch them) I give the guys who mow our yard beer as "payment". I've cooked lasagna for laid off neighbors. I'm a sneaky on-line shopper who sends stuff unsuspectingly to others. We've tried to be more charitable with our money. I've tried to buy local and handmade.
Today I made the yummiest looking fruit salad for a neighbor going through a difficult time.
Now that I wrote all of that it sounds a little on the bragging side, but that is not the point.
First, I think we all need to do more things that help others around us. It's the whole karma thing.
Second, I need more ideas! I want to keep up my good deeds, but I am running dry! Any thoughts?
