Support The School Fees Of Low Income Families

My wife is an amazing supporter of education for girls and people in low income families. She wanted to sponsor the primary school fees for a girl who happens to be the daughter of household staff. She got my younger daughter to sponsor a big portion of the school fees and my younger daughter gladly agreed. I have no role in this kindness except having the pleasure of hearing it and sharing here. My wife also influenced a neighbor to contribute and they gladly agreed. Next month we plan to support the school fees of a child of our community gardener.

Supporting Earth

I've been buying from a company called Earthwise Girls who specialise in items which are plastic free and made as sustainable as possible. We have a reusuable deodrant - you put the biodegradable and natural deodrant into the case and it lasts for about three months.

In the last few months the company has been struggling but there loyal customers have continued to support them through this difficult time and they've begun pull through.

Christine who started the company and still runs it is very kind and recently they donated 400 packs of biodegradable sanitary towels to an organisation who is taking them to women in Rwanda. I wanted to acknowledge what Christine has done and so I knitted her a scarf and a stripy cat. The post person connected the package half an hour ago and I hope Christine will receive it tomorrow.

Friendship Renewed

Friendship renewed with gifts

Friends for about 30 years visited me from New Jersey. I met them about a year ago and stayed with them in their New Jersey home for 4 days. We used to live in nearby towns about ten minutes drive. We used to meet very often and help each other.

Like the sunrise after a long night, our renewed friendship brings warmth, hope, and the promise of a beautiful day filled with shared moments.

They also made a donation towards my kind acts. I am grateful to them.

I gifted them some quote cardsm books and some other items.

Amidst the noise of life, I heard familiar laughter, and suddenly, the colours of our friendship blossomed anew, painting my world with joy and love.--FriendshipY

My Greatest 98-Year Old Neighbor

Day 27:
I have a 98-year old neighbor. She's incredible. You would think she was in her 70s. Very sharp and moves better than I in some respects 🙂.
She gets her groceries delivered weekly, but every weekend I call to ask if she needs something else, and I'll shop for her (usually a few items) and bring them to her when I get done with shopping. She's the greatest!

Knitting And Earth’s Day

I finished knitting and putting together an orange triceratops and I'm going to put him in the box for India. I'm in the process of knitting a pink stegosaurus for my daughter. When she was two we flew to Canada for a conference and we stayed with a family in Calgary with children a similar age to Ruth.

Before we flew home we visited a number of places in and around Calgary. The Zoo had a wonderful display of life size dinosaurs and Ruth fell in love with a stegosaurus. We bought a stegosaurus home with us so I thought it would spark memories for her.

In Celebration of Earth Day, I've put two window bird feeders up. The sunflowers I put in a pot a couple of weeks ago are growing well.

I've put together a collage of photos for you to see.

Flower Bouquets For Administrative Assistant Day

About a decade ago for Administrative Assistants' Day I asked my students to bring one flower to school so we could make a bouquet for our office staff. That year we not only got single flowers but full bouquets as well.
A decade later it has spread to the entire school and the office is like a flower shop. Because we've done it for so long, some classes changed things up a bit, bringing plants, making and signing a poster and making individual cards. The kids love seeing the staff smile.

Helping In Difficult Situation

Day 30:
I was going to donate to a GoFundMe that was close to my heart, but I had an unexpected opportunity to donate to one even closer, as a family at my school had a sudden very difficult situation arise, and a donation would be in order. Helping someone from your immediate community is crucial when you can.

Face Paint and Twish Balloon Animals For Joy

Day 26:
Our older daughter has a party business and she has taught my wife (her mom) how to face paint and twist balloon animals.
Our younger daughter lives over a five hour drive from her sister and runs events in her area. She has asked me and her mom to come up next month, my wife to face paint and me, to twist balloons.
So, I've been learning and practice my balloon animals a little each day and have been bringing my creations to the grocery store on weekends or to my school to give to little brothers and sisters (3- and 4-year olds).
Today I gave a yellow dog to Martin, the little brother of a student in my class. Martin has recently turned 3. When I gave it to him this morning his joy brought me so much joy. He squealed, "Doggie!" and ran around the room holding up his new pet.

Filling Martin's bucket filled mine as well.

🕊️ Waiting Room Peace Summit 🕊️

That’s Gretchen in the photo. She was waiting for her car to be serviced too. We had never met before and not sure we will again, but wow, what an encounter! It was one of those brief, open, heart-to-heart, synchronistic connections that bloomed with the radiance of divine love. When I asked what she was reading she said, “The Anatomy of Peace,” a book her sister had sent in response to a few months of silence from her sister. Gretchen was puzzled. Why this book? What message was her sister trying to convey? “Forgiveness. That’s the biggest thing,” Gretchen said. I agreed. “Families. They are our most challenging lessons.” That opened a share about my brother, who had disowned our family over 20 years ago. An origami peace dove fairly flew out of my purse into her hand, and then another to share with her estranged sister. I’ve signed out “The Anatomy of Peace” from the online Libby ...

Package Of Kindness

Richard took some of the items we didn't need to the Food Bank and I had an idea for a bottle of wine which was part of the package. I will drop it off at the Hairdressers as they have moved to new premises and I think it will help them celebrate!

I'm putting together a package for our neighbours too!

The photo shows the book and the raccoon and owl I've knitted to accompany them.
