Be kind, always.💙
Saw this little quote this morning and thought you’d all appreciate it.
There are a million things I love and appreciate about Thomas. He is the most selfless man I know. He gives and does for everyone, but especially me.
Each morning, Thomas has set his alarm for 6am. He’s gotten up and saved space for us on the beach and set the entire family up for a good beach day. He lays down sheets and blankets to reserve the space and sets up chairs and umbrellas to make me the most comfortable.
Thomas is a good guy. And I’m grateful for all the millions of little things he does to make me life easier, more fun and simply wonderful, every single day.
I’ll forever be grateful for him and all he does for others. His quiet example has taught Hayden to be just like him. I watch Hayden caring about others, opening doors, asking how he can help and doing quiet acts of service and it melts my heart. I’m so grateful for Thomas’ example and Hayden’s willingness to learn from his dad. I’m truly been given the best! My heart is so happy!!!
I am ready for our Kindness Klub next week. I'm going to be teaching emaphy to children and we will be doing some acts of kindness in our community. At the end of the week my kids will earn a trophy for their hard work. #kindness #actsofkindness #empathy #martialarts #karate

‘A little spark of kindness can put a colossal burst of sunshine into someone’s day’.....🌸
So these ‘poppered pants’ got me (and Chris!) this arvo....🌸
Not so much the 20 pairs of girls pants, but the fact that my Mum and 3 of her friends got together for a total of over 7 hours to cut, sew and man-handle 80 poppers to make toileting that little bit easier when Sophie is in her spica cast....🌸
I only mentioned that the OT had talked to us about pants with poppers or Velcro, and voila.....a new business was created in her front room!....🌸
So kind.....so clever....so grateful....here’s to not getting our knickers in a twist!....🌸

Day 21 of 31 Acts of Kindness Karma Card. A short call can give someone the smile they badly need in their day. Get out there and be the change! ❤️🙏
Lift others up in everything you do. Whether it’s buying food for someone who needs it or even just a smile or a hand.
Instead of writing a post today to explain much I love this man, I want to share a story about him that explains who is he ...
The other day he waiting outside a Wawa for his boss who was inside. A young man asked if he could come stand next to him as Michael was standing in the shade. He explained he didn’t want any money but rather just some shade.
And as it comes so natural to my husband, he struck up conversation with this young man and learned he was homeless. Living at Wawa as he had a place to sleep under cover and free water. He had lived with his mother and she passed away. He had used her car to get to work but since she passed and was no longer making payments, it was taken away as was their home. •
Michael asked him what he planned to do to get out of this situation and found the young man to be very well spoken... he said he was going to apply for jobs at the Dollar Store or Burger King nearby. He had gotten fresh clothes from a church but was still without shower or shave. Michael knew he needed an address to apply for a job so he told the kid he was going to help him out and give me an opportunity.
He took him to a nearby hotel and got him a room for two weeks. He gave him money to go into Wawa and get something to eat. He gave him money to go into the Dollar Store and gather essentials. He explained to the hotel manager what he was doing and asked him if he had some work for the young man to do at the hotel why he stayed there.
In the mean time, his boss found out what Michael was doing and was so in awe of Michael’s kindness, he joined in and offered a bike he would give to him so he could get around and potentially give him work at their office as well.
Long story short, As Michael told me this story with tears in his eyes at how he felt for this kid even if only half his story was true, my heart exploded with love and admiration for this man I am lucky enough to call my husband.
On your 51st birthday, I am honored to be your wife and proud of the wonderfully kind human being you are!

If you have the self awareness to be authentic and keep a clear mind....you’re on your way to living your best life 👌 #1aweek
DAY 29💚🌍: Today, I really was feeling lazy. We all wanted to eat something and someone had to go to the store. Even though we really wasn't feeling it, my sister and I went to the store and got something for everyone. We ended up going 2 more times because someone had forgot something. So we went again and bought that thing for the person who had forgotten to tell us the first time. 😫👍🏼
But it wasn't that dreadful because the grocery store is only 10 minutes away. 😊 At the end, everyone got everything they wanted to eat and we all were happy. 👍🏼
What's your good deed today?🙈💛
DAY 29💚🌍: Today, we were all eating delicious corn. 🌽 After, we threw away the remaining corn after eating it. All, except for my sister. She left it on the table. I made sure she knew that she didn't throw it away (just so she would remember next time) and I picked it up and threw it away. 🗑🌽😊
What's a good deed that you've done today?🙈💛
DAY 28💚🌍: Share your food. Today's challenge. 😊
Today I was eating and my friend also had her food but she first had to microwave it.
Because I could easily share my food (it was more than I could've eaten in one sitting) I just told her that she doesn't need to microwave hers, she could just eat mine. At that point I had started eating before and was almost finished at that point so I was able to give her the plate with the food. 🍔🍕🍟😊
She was very thankful and it also made me smile and feel joyful. ✨✨
What's a good deed that you did today?💛🙈 every small thing matters
DAY 27💚🌍: Today at the beach, I made a new friend. Basically her father speaks the same language as me and asked me if I could hang out with his daughter, who speaks english. Because I can also speak english, we communicated very well. Later on, she wanted to go on a boat which I wasn't too excited about because I wanted to relax a little. But I decided to do her the favour and go on the boat. It ended up being so much fun and I don't regret it at all.☺
Always take opportunities to experience something. Especially something new. Even if you first don't like to do it because you think that it would be a waste of time, DO IT. 🤗 Because even if it was a waste of time (which almost never is the case) you tried that new thing and now know better. 😊 Experience as much as you can. ❤️
When's the last time you've done someone a favour? How did it end up and what kind of a favour was it?💛🙈
Thank you @littlecloudcrafts

Posted a story about a book exchange. Check it out and send me a message if you're keen on joining!
Excited to announce I’m 1 of 20 artists taking part in @nationalrailenq @_Railcards
‘No Boundaries’ exhibition. “This summer we’re working with Royal Association for Deaf people, Scope, Stroke Association and The National Autistic Society to launch an exhibition called No Boundaries, which will tour some of Britain’s most iconic train stations.
The exhibition is designed to encourage travel without boundaries, thanks to the improvements in accessibility on Britain’s railway and the support available to disabled people and their families and friends.” When my Skin Picking disorder and anxiety levels are at their fiercest, drawing helps me rest on the page, to shift the tension and refocus my hands. Art is my tool for recovery. I create & give my drawings away on journeys as #actsofkindness
for passengers and #advocacy
everyday, to raise awareness and reduce stigma for mental illness and this disorder. Compulsive Skin Picking also known as Dermatillomania or Excoriation, is a complex physical and mental disorder, part of a group known as body-focused repetitive behaviours, self-grooming in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their own hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body.
I’ll create & give away my #CompulsiveCharcoal
drawings on my journey from London to Lulworth on 26 July, and will contribute a charcoal drawing inspired by the textures of the strata on Lulworth Cove beach to the exhibition which will tour stations around the country... The exhibition will be at London Kings Cross station for one week before travelling to the following locations:
Birmingham: 24th August – 15th September
Cardiff: 17th September – 6th October
Gatwick: 8th – 28th October

Today I went to my grandmas work. She works with the elderly. My mom has a super soft spot in her heart for the elderly. I brought happy smiles to all the residents. Some of the residents haven't smiled in months but today I brighten their day! I was a good girl and didn't jump on anyone they all loved me and I was able to make some of their days brighter! * disclaimer I wasn't aloud to take pics of the residents due to the HIPPA law #gsabekindtooneanother #goldenretriever #kindess #actsofkindness #charlogsa
This AM cali went to St Joseph church with for morning mass. Fr. Kinney always mentions her in the prayers of the faithful because he thinks it is so special what she does for people. He introduced he to the 20 or so individuals who attended mass and at the end of service we had a meet and greet. She was perfectly behaved in the pew, even when she had to sit by herself during communion on her @penelopads
Sunday July 22nd is going to be a special day! Not because it’s my birthday, but because I’ve dedicated that day to do 27 acts of kindness/ good deeds. I’m really excited to grow as a person and to become better everyday. I’ll be updating throughout the day on how it’s all going! ❤️ Follow me or the hashtag #27actsofdanica

A few months ago, I saw a coworker of mine leaving with a completely empty cake plate, I told her, "Looks like somebody liked it." She laughed and said that her red velvet always goes fast. I said, "Oh, I love red velvet!" She said that the next time she made one, she'd bring me a piece. This morning, I saw her walking in with a beautiful cake, all fluffy cream cheese frosting and crushed pecans and all the good things in life. And I thought, "Don't be stupid, Rachel. She won't remember." So I was just sitting at my desk, working hard, doing my thing, and I feel someone walk up beside me. I look up, and it's her -- carrying a little plastic plate wrapped in foil. And when I tell y'all that this cake changed my whole life, I mean it. They say that when you fall in love, it makes you want to be a better person. Well, after the first bite, I was mentally forgiving ex-boyfriends and the man who called me a "son of a bitch" back in 2011 because I wouldn't take his expired coupon. After the second bite, I started thinking of more ways to recycle. So that's it, you guys, the secret to world peace: cake.
And yes, I keep actual flatware at work because I'm a lady.
