Kindness and Gratitude Month

A couple of days ago, I wrote about my plan to record the many acts of kindness that I get to witness each and every day.  Just yesterday, I was reading curiousgirl's blog and she has declared November GRATITUDE MONTH!  I have decided to combine the two! 

My goal for the month of November is to recognize kindness each day and write about it.  It may be something that happens right here in my own home, maybe it's happens at work...  or maybe it's a random act of kindness I just happen to witness while I'm out and about.!  (It may even come from an inspiring kindness blog...) 

THE SEARCH IS ON!!! 

As I find it and write about it, I hope to reflect and discover/rediscover a never ending supply of gratitude.


My evidence of kindness for the day:

My lovely co-worker (Angela) offered to share her whole rolling suitcase of goodies (FAT FULL with Ocupational Therapy type toys!!) with me ANYTIME.  And I know she meant it.    She also offered to do a mini-workshop with me on a program called Handwriting Without Tears.  I am very interested in the program due to brain-based research I discovered recently AND beacause Angela would only promote activities that are richly appropriate for my part-time babies. 

My gratitude today.......  I am so happy to have my part time position this year, thankful for all that I have learned so far, and MOST OF ALL happy to have extra time with my own 4 love bugs.

Lastly, and most importantly....my favorite little nugget of gratitude for today (and a quarter of my favorite gratitude for life)....

This little boy turned into a 9 year old today at 1:02 pm! 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FINN!! 
I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON.
