I'm super excited to bring you week FOUR of #52weeksMTB (I added the MTB for "my three bittles" so that it wasn't getting mixed up with other hashtags on twitter)
This week was a great week for good deeds!
First, head over to my lovely co-host Whitney's blog and check out her good deed of the week!
This week we donated to a friends kid's Jump rope for heart. If you'd like to donate as well, click here.
We took cookies to the ladies at our local Starbucks. They were pretty excited about it!
Owen hung out here a second so that I could leave diapers & wipes on the changing table! I even left a little cards in between each diaper with my business card telling people to click the 52 weeks tab.
We handed out little "hope this brightens your day" with little treats inside along with my card.
I left one in the mailbox for the mailman.
And Maddie handed out the rest to other moms waiting to pick up their little Kindergarteners.
I also bought two $5 starbucks cards. I asked the lady at Starbucks for a pen and wrote "$5. Be kind!" and asked the ladies to hand this to the next person that came in.
And the other one we handed to Fin's teacher.
Then the next day while picking up Fin, she came up to me and said, "I'm going to try to get through this without crying" and went on to tell me a little personal stuff and hugged me and told me she just NEEDED to see that part about smiling! And seeing Fin & Maddie's faces full of excitement when they handed it to her just made her day! She told me that she sat in her car just crying that afternoon because it'd been just the little blessing that she'd needed to get.
This is what this project is all about.
Making people happy.
Making people smile.
Oh my gosh, I got all teary eyed listening to her!
It was the best feeling! The sweetest thing!
And seeing the look on everyone's face as Maddie handed them the little treats (she handpicked each person herself) was just so wonderful! Watching Miss Maddie pick who she wanted to cheer up just melted my heart!
You guys, I mean really.... my heart is just so happy this week!
I can not wait to read all of your stories!
Even if you don't link up, don't blog, etc etc, just do something nice.
Seeing the reaction and just knowing that YOU put a smile on someone's face is worth a million bucks!
