Have I done any good in the world today?

Ya know how a song will pop into your gray matter for NO REASON?
It's been going on for a week. I'm starting to pay attention.
"Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped any one in need?
Have I cheered up the sad or
Made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed in deed."
Uhhhh.... guess I must not be achieving passing grades in the Helpful department since this song is currently riding the waves of my brain.

So, I have a new goal. I am going to attempt one random act of kindness a day. We'll see if this will give me the peace I seek. I am hoping the good I may accomplish will outweigh the bad on which I focus.

Silly me for not trying this sooner, for this is the sign I have hanging by my front door:
(I must not look up very often.)

I am an ecstatic receiver to kindness, and what goes around comes around, thus, I am going to initiate the process. Watch out world, I have a gift basket in my heart and I feel like sharing!!! (FREAK! Was that last sentence covered in cheese, or what?!?!? My apologies to those who are offended by sappy sentiments.)

So, if you need a lift, I will be your underwire.

We could all use a lift now and again right? Thanks for doing the heavy lifting :)

seriously, I just spewed my water everywhere with the last comment. I apparently cannot drink and laugh hard at the same time.

You are the definition of kindess. I think I may call Webster or Oxford or whoever and see if we can get that printed.
it would look something like this:
kind-ness/kindnis/ person 1. Kristine Hansen. 2. n to be kind..

You are always looking to help and I love it! I wish more of it would rub off on me.

I love the last comment too. So funny. You are so good to have such good goals. Mine are all about cleaning my house and folding laundry...maybe I should follow your example.

You are such a good lifter-upper (even for those of us that just need to be rolled up and tucked in!) Jack is such a cute kid. You'll have to venture back down here to the ghetto sometime this summer so we can all play!! You always make me smile, miss you!
