Yep, I'm trying to spread rainbows and butterflies lol. On that note I have seen 2 rainbows this week which is kind of weird, maybe it's a sign :) Honestly I can say I feel the best emotionally that I've felt in awhile so I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. Last night I went to Walmart and got my Rally stuff but also got a lot of cards. I found cute little packs of cards with different ones so bought 2 packs and will keep thinking of people to send them to till they are gone.
I came home got my chicken bbq made for rally and then sat down and started writing out cards to people. The one I wrote for my sister (Kevin's mom) I read to the family and it got me chocked up. It made me realize that growing up I was closest to D. It always seemed to be her and I and though she was stubborn as hell she could also be very kind. It makes me feel good she dishes out kindness to my kids through her cards like my aunt use to dish out to us. I'm going to make an effort with her even if we don't talk.
I also bought Mike a card telling him how lucky I feel to have him. It was a card that also called him my best friend which I have realized is true. I never thought of him that way but in the past 6 months of so much going on I've come to realize that when I'm in emotional need he is the one there for me to cry and hold on to when I need that.
I gave a peach to a co-worker yesterday too. She's always thinking of me and bringing me fruits and veggies and other little things. I really want to reach out to all the people that are thoughtful to me too. I'm sure so often they get taken for granted.
So my happiness challenge is off to a good start. I sent out 6 cards today to people so that's 6 more people that will get a smile on their face when they receive it :) Tomorrow is my TOPS fall rally so I'm sure tomorrow will be "smile at everyone" day :) I will try to dish out some compliments too for sure. I think that is one of the easiest ways to spread some happiness to others, give them a compliment.
I'm ready for the weekend. Only working till 3 today but did come in early so it's a full day for me. Looking forward to seeing my fellow TOPS area captains and J tonight. Marie was suppose to go over J's today since she didn't have school but she elected to stay home with Nick. Hopefully they have a decent day together. I'll be having dinner with the TOPS ladies at J's house so looking forward to hanging with all them tonight.
Haven't heard from my mom in 2 days I need to call to see how she's doing.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Till next time...
