Spread Kindness



When I was cleaning our tv room last week, I found this little book tucked away on a shelf.

It's one that Sheryll gave me exactly two years ago.

I've enjoyed reading through it and just love the little message above.

Today Sheryll surprised me with this.

No, it's not my birthday. That was 3 months ago. But we never were able to make special plans for breakfast, so she delivered this to school today. It's a giant chocolate chip cookie and it is divine. Guess what I'm having for dinner along with a very large glass of milk?

Wishing you a day that's filled with many of life's sweet surprises. Go out a spread a little of your own brand of kindness. Peace & blessings, Tammy

What a great little book. I am sure you had a lot of smiles reading through that one. Sheryl sounds like such a lovely person. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet her when I was in Kuwait. Omar and I were talking about Kuwait this morning while out walking, and it was hard not to remember that Kuwait was a good place to be, especially for all the wonderful people I met while there.
Enjoy your cookie. I am thinking the boys will be just a bit excited when they see it!! HA!

Have a great Monday!
Love,
Renee

Hi Tammy,
Great little story! So nice to continue celebrating the birthday - how fun to get that unexpected surprise. Enjoy that cookie for your dinner. I had cereal for dinner a few nights recently and i really enjoyed having something undinnerlike! Heck, why not just skip to dessert if you can?!

Hi, Tammy,
I enjoyed the story from your wonderful book. Your friend gave you a special present when she presented you that book. The cookie looks delicious, and I would enjoy it for dinner, too, with a cold glass of milk. Enjoy your week, dear friend~ Vicki

Can't believe I've been that busy to not have been on here all week. See what I missed? Can't believe you hogged that whole cookie to yourself. You don't know how to share women and spread the kindness!! LOL! It's been an exhausting week with the end of the year graduations plus with me running around trying to find the shirts I need, which I finally did. By the time I get home, I'm too tired to even want to look at the computer. Keep forgetting how pregnant I am and just keep going on. I actually didn't have anything to do yesterday after work but sit around out of pure laziness. Ignored the call of my laptop. Now that I have had some rest and peace of mind on this early Friday morning, I've decided to catch up and enjoying listening to Boston. Forgot I even liked this song.
