So todays' post is going to be three posts in one. I am a few days behind with being a single mom right now and having all the kids home on spring break last week.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TINY TASK TUESDAY
This is my own little way of trying to help America get back to the generous, Happy, and friendly place it was 20 years ago.
What did you do this week to help someone or something out?
Did you take in a stray? Did you watch someones' kids? Did you make a friend or neighbor a garden? How about pick up the trash that was laying all over the street after the trash men came by?
These are all simple or tiny tasks that can be done by you and your spouse and children. Very easy with no money involved, so don't use that as an excuse.
I will share one task that I did this week to help someone. My neighbors across the street had to leave there house around 9:30pm one night due to a gas leak. The firemen were in taking care of it and they were standing on their front porch with a 2 year old and a 4 year old freezing. I hollered across the street and through all the commotion to them to come over to my house. It was silly for them all to be standing outside with the wind blowing and it being cold, even if they did not have the children. So they stayed at my house for the rest of the time the firefighters were taking care of their house. Simple, easy, no money involved just the love in my heart and desire to help someone else out in need.
Its your turn, just one task a week. What can you do to make a difference? You do not have to adopt a child here. I am not asking you to run up 6 flights of stairs in a burning building. I am asking you to step up and do something good for someone and do it once or more a week. Try it!! It is a nice feeling when you see that clean street or that smiling child.
Also, say a little Prayer for my good Internet friend MckMama and baby Stellan. He is need of lots of prayers.
This week is the National Cherry Blossom festival here in D.C. All the beautiful trees surrounding the tidal basin, or water around the Jefferson Memorial are in bloom. They are quite gorgeous. Since we moved here I have been taking the kids down there and having a little photo shoot with them. I love to take pictures of them and what a perfect place to do it. Here are a few of the shots I got. I will go take a few more tomorrow. I love Spring, all the flowers beginning to bloom, the cool crisp air and the beginning of new life. Fantabulous!!!
