Under the Weather

I have been feeling a little under the weather since Sunday...which has trickled over to Monday...ugh! But either way i mustered all the power i had to get myself to the office today. Funny stomach has been feeling like a roller coaster running around in circles....up until i ate popcorn....popcorn...really???? I am a clean eater and this makes no sense to me at all...but oh well...take it for what it's worth...popcorn makes your stomach much better :-) (at least today)

Hope everyone is having a GREAT week!!!

Random acts of kindness...

As i was thinking of what fashionable post i would create...i began to think of my weekend as a whole and how it all played out. Well when you have a 14y.o who is about to graduate and has played on a traveling soccer team for the past 8 have pretty busy weekends. With that being said...i ran around town yesterday from a soccer game to dropping her off at the summer bash with friends to shop shopping (previous post) for pretty much the then off to the hair dresser for graduation hair cut... but all i could think about was a random act of kindness that trickled a way of kindness acts...

While sitting at a stop light, there a a man in the middle of the road with a dog holding a sign saying, "down on my luck". All of a sudden there was  a woman who pulled up and gave the guy a bag of dog food. This was seen by the car in front of me, the person in the car in front of me rolled down his window and gave the man some here i sit eating raspberries ( buy 1 get 2 for free) watching all of this...well i decided to give the man a pint of fresh raspberries. As i drove away i felt so good seeing people do good's true doing good can bring others to follow in the same way... at least yesterday it did...what a good day!!!
