Thanksgiving Random Acts of Kindness 2007 - November 20, 2007, 07:42 AM

So Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and those of you that know me just knew I had to post one of my corny feel good threads. But Hey... It's how I roll!

So here's the deal. Thanksgiving is a holiday that gives us a chance to reflect back over the past year and recognize things or events that have happened that we are thankful for and to spend time with loved ones and just feel good about things for at least one day a year. So Here's your challenge of this thread....

#1 Name one thing in 2007 that you are truly thankful for.

#2 Practice a random act of Kindness for somebody and share with us what you did and what the outcome was. (i.e. Pay somebody's toll, leave money on a soda machine, sweep somebody's sidewak, etc. You get the idea..be creative) Keep it simple. Heck, buy soimebody a cookie or something..The key here is RANDOM.

#3 Pay somebody a random compliment. Preferably somebody you wouldn't usually compliment and would expect it least. Then share with us the results.

Ok sure it's corny (hate me later), but it could be fun. Remember in a world of random violence, it is up to us to produce random kindness too!

Good Luck and I hope you all have a GREAT Thanksgiving!

FOREVER #47 "Walking In The Echo...."

Oo! Oo! Me! Me!

1. Just one thing? Man that's hard! I'm truly grateful for my man and for our health and happiness. And the girls in the cave, but that goes without saying.

2. I typically practice random acts of kindness (my favorite is paying for the person behind you in line, either at the toll booth or at the breakfast lane drive through). Today I bought the person in line behind me coffee at Fivebucks. They were shocked, and turned around and did it for the person behind them Spread the love, baby!

3. Will report back on the random compliment!

Talk nerdy to me

It's not how many times you get knocked down,
it's how many times you get back up!

I'm thankful for so much. Too much to list actually, but every time I see a service man/woman at lunch or dinner I pick up their check. I tell their waitstaff to simply write on the check..."Thank you for your service.".

1. 60lbs lighter than I was this time last year so my bikes accelerate faster and get better gas mileage.

2. Helped a cop push a stalled car out of the road on ffx county parkway.

I also shoveled the snow off of the sidewalk and steps of everyone on my block. Wasn't completely random as I was going stir crazy sitting in my house doing nothing.

3. I'll have to work on that one.


Ill believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.
