monday gratitude…

June 11, 2012

Really good things for today my friends:

1. got a small and lovely mention in the July issue of Good Housekeeping in their article on Kindness…it’s a great article with lots of great ideas. Check it out on page 126 next to the orange crayon! Woohoo!

2. Kindness Captured: A Day of Bravery and Kindness, our kindness adventure in 4 cities on June 30th, has an invite up on Facebook for those in RVA! If you want to host this event in your city, e-mail me at and I’ll send you the invite and information.

The city host role (is 1 or 2 people) involves:

Creating a Facebook event page and managing it.

Inviting friends and people in your city to join you.

Answering e-mails and questions about interest in the event.

Organizing who will be where and when.

We’ll have a kit explaining it all but I just thought it might be good to know what it all involves!

The rest of you kindness people: Just show up with 5 bucks at the time and location you are given and be ready to do a kindness mission! Yay! (you have to send me your e-mail address so I can send you all the info!

3. Magic Wand is rollin’! We are working on some in-city wand making parties at some of your favorite places and festivals in RVA this summer!

4. I finally, after much resistance, added an “about me” page. I decided it would be SOoooo much better if it was about US….so please head on over there, read mine and then add yours in the comments. It’s always been about us anyway.

What bit of gratitude is rising for you today…on this Monday? Please tell us in the comments below, gratitude is contagious.

grateful for these 2 babies of their families today…

    Oh I lurves me some gratitude! In no particular order I am grateful for: witnessing my son’s fierce bravery and joy as he performed in front of his entire school this morning, curly slides and triple berry pie a la mode. Oh and your blog-seriously! Poetic and beautiful as always Patience…

    Gratitude I can do – for my two boys (9 and 4) getting along today!!!. To George Lucas for making Star Wars because that is why they are getting along.
    Thankful that this blog reminds me to be greatful.

    Grateful for David MuCullough Jr’s commencement speech at Wellesley HS. My fav bit: ” Exercise free will and creative, independent thought not for the satisfactions they will bring you, but for the good they will do others, the rest of the 6.8 billion–and those who will follow them. And then you too will discover the great and curious truth of the human experience is that selflessness is the best thing you can do for yourself. The sweetest joys of life, then, come only with the recognition that you’re not special. Because everyone is.”
