My birthday is coming up next month. It's not a milestone birthday, but I'm still excited. I'm excited because growing up is an adventure. I'm excited because I get to celebrate with my family. And I'm excited because I have a great idea to make this my greatest birthday ever. But I need your help!
I was inspired by this post I found on Pinterest (horribly addicted) a few months ago. Essentially, this woman chose to spend her birthday committing random acts of kindness. What an awesome idea! I've long wanted to start the "pay for the person behind me" chain in a Starbucks drive-thru. So this year, I'm using my birthday as an excuse to do it and to find other ways to go out of my way to be nice to people. And I am going to ask all of you to give me a gift as well.
I want everyone who reads this post to do something nice for someone - a friend, a neighbor, a complete stranger, ANYONE! And I want to hear about it in the comments of this post. I'll come back after my day of random acts of kindness and share with you what the kids and I decided to do to brighten people's days. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
The best birthday gift I can imagine is to have hundreds of stranger smiling because people read this post. So please spread the word and come back soon (before the 2nd week in November) and let me know what you did (or if you don't want to share the specifics, just let me know that you did something).
