I was here...

Have you seen this?  




Needless to say the events of the past year have caused me to be reflective.  Everything that happens, once seemingly insignificant, I now digest and seek to find a deeper meaner.  Listening to this song the other night on T.V. was one of those moments.  Sometimes it may seem that we as individuals have little to no impact on the world as a whole, but really, it has to start somewhere.  This song seemed to go along with the 26 acts of kindness post from last week.  So, I thought I'd check in and let you know what we've been doing.

The kids and I took a trip to Target on the Friday before Christmas to pick up some things to make bags for homeless people.  This is some of what we put in the bags...toothbrush, toothpaste, tissues, cough drops, snacks, deodorant, first aid kit, gloves, drinks, brush, chocolates, chapstick, soap, gift card to stop and shop...


I attached a kindness quote to each of the 6 bags. 
 On Christmas Eve morning we drove around to where we usually see homeless people and we passed out the bags.  The kids passed them out from the back seat and wished everyone a Merry Christmas. I knew this "act" made an impact when E started to become very quiet from the back seat and then he said, "Mom, can we do this every year?  I like helping people."  

Yesterday we completed act #7 by leaving our waitress at Bertucci's a big tip and today I completed act #8 by making a donation here.  

Remember in high school when you went to the bathroom and it seemed the entire school had written on the walls stating that they were there?  "Justine was here, 11/9/86, Jay was here, 9/4/87"...

I never was one to write on the bathroom walls, but it does seem important to make a difference and do something significant with my life and make it known that "I was here."  By the way, I plan on having 60 more years to leave my mark ;)

I was hereI lived, I lovedI was hereI did, I've done, everything that I wantedAnd it was more than I thought it would beI will leave my mark so everyone will know-Beyonce
