Random acts of kindness



(credit)

Yesterday I arrived at work to find a basket on my desk filled with homemade cup cakes, m&m cookies, fudge and lollies, made by two lovely friends of mine. And it got me thinking, when was the last time I did something spontaneous to bless someone else? Even just something small like leaving a note saying "I love you" can really brighten someones day and I want my amazing friends to feel treasured and appreciated.

So I'm starting my acts of kindness by sending a parcel to my American friend with a bunch of New Zealand goodies she's been missing. I'm feeling kind of excited! Doing something- even if it's small- to bless someone else is a really good feeling!

Edit: I totally wrote this whole post then lost the entire thing... I definitely didn't word it so well the second time around but you get what I mean, right?!

  13. I totally agree with you!

    Last Saturday, I was seeing a band one of my best friends likes so texted her one of the lines of a song I know she loves, I would have called her, but I knew she was in a club so she wouldn't have heard anything, anyway, it was just to remind her that I love her, her reply was so sweet as well and it did really bright me up and I know it worked for her as well :)
