814-816) I had hoped to find a volunteer opportunity to deliver meals on wheels through our local Loaves and Fishes organization. I have never had a chance to do that on Thanksgiving and thought it might be a good family opportunity. Luckily, 300 other people had already signed up (lots of mitzvah doers here). There was a need to hand out fliers at my local supermarket encouraging people to purchase a dinner at the check out line. I had my shift yesterday and it was a wonderful opportunity. It was a lot of fun and I saw several friends while I was on my shift. Also, I gave someone directions to the bathroom, helped someone find the manager, got someone to help a gal in the florist department and had someone ask me for condiments in the deli. I left feeling useful and having helped a very worthy cause.
817) Our gym has just made a new policy. They moved the towels outside of the locker rooms. Apparently, it has already dropped the towel usage by 50%. The only down side is if your in the locker room undressed and then you remember you forgot to take a towel ( you get the visual). On Monday, I got one for someone else and the next day had to ask someone to get one for me. What goes around comes around.
818) Sent gratitude cards to several people including my children’s teacher.
819) Volunteered in my daughter’s classroom today. There is no better insight to what’s happening at school than hanging around and volunteering. It’s eye opening.
I received two awesome mitzvahs this week, got a wonderful thank you card from one of my business partners. I also got a call from a friend whom I had given a recipe. I knew it was up her alley – easy and healthy. She called me to tell me her kids loved it and thanked me for sharing. I know I have said it before but cards and calls can really make a differene. I bet if each of us wrote one card and made one call a day we would literally change this world.
Finally, my daughter and I were reading some of my blog tonight and she asked if she could write a comment. I am so blessed.
