Stories of Kindness from Around the World

My Smile Deck Week


--by Su Bluebird, posted May 11, 2013
I recently received a Smile Deck, and decided to do a challenge, by drawing one card randomly every day!  Here were my opportunities for smiles this week ... 

7 ♣ - Thurs. Sent encouraging notes to family members who are far away

A   - Fri. Gave hugs to first five people I saw in the morning. They were exercising in the park. I announced my mission – to give hugs – and was enthusiastically accepted by 4, somewhat reluctantly by one.

6 ♣ - Sat. Made a lunch for my husband and included a written note with a joke in it.

9 ♣ - Sun. Put on a vintage “Sun, Wind & Fire” video for my husband & did a little joy dance to this fine disco music.

8 ♣ - Mon. Did a chore for a neighbor .Took out & carefully folded his dried laundry in our apartment laundry area.

9   - Tues. Donated a favorite recipe book to the Edinburg Public Library.

8   - Wed. Acknowledged, with *MANY THANKS*, the many kindnesses done by 'Infinite Love' volunteers (who first gifted me this Deck) every day of the week. at home, in the park, & in the community.
