BE NICE!!!!

Belle has a post about Karma today. Or about being sweet and kind for no reason at all, just for the sake of being a good person. Go read it, I'll wait.

OK, so, we live in a gated community. It has a guard gate that has the sweetest (and meanest) old guards. They "guard" our humongous 2,000 square foot house 24 hours a day. I wave at them as I come and go all day. And yes, there are times when I have been a little exasperated with them.

BUT this morning I got a coffee and a breakfast taco. As I pulled into the gate, I handed Harvey a hot breakfast taco. His grumpy frown actually smiled.

Today wasn't the only day I have done this. Usually when I pick up breakfast I always through in an extra something for our guys at the gate. It makes them smile. And that makes me smile.

THAT IS SO SWEET OF YOU! I love giving to others...it makes me feel so good to bring a smile to someone's face even if it is something as simple as a breakfast taco.

That is so sweet, and I totally believe in karma and paying it forward. One time I took Carter to get doghnuts before school, and I order, they gave him his bag, I went to pay, and I had left my wallet at home. I tried to explain to Carter that he couldn't have the doughnuts, and a lady I had never even seen before, paid for the doughnuts and insisted she give me $5.00 extra for lunch that day. I tried to refuse, but she insisted saying to "pay it forawrd!"

I love this! And, it's such a good example to set for your kids.

I've been meaning to bring hot chocolate to the crossing guards on a cold, snowy, 10 degree morning and now I'm going to do it!

That's so sweet!!! I always am so well intentioned, but rarely follow through. Guess it doesn't count then, huh?! :)
