Passing It Along

After a long day, I went to my mailbox with my two boys. One was excited to tell me about his day at school and the other, I don't think he stopped talking the entire day. As I opened my mailbox, I found an envelope. On it said "I'm Not Talking About It, I'm Just Saying.... thought you could use these. " Boy could I.

Inside the envelope were coupons for FREE chocolate chip cookies and chocolate bars. Yummmmmmm! I think I know which reader sent them to me. Thank you! Thank you for putting a smile on my face and making my day.

I have to be honest, the cookies that I wrote about it in my last post sat in my van all morning while I ran errands. I had two places to drop them off. Both had some major things happen this week in their lives. One person I knew really well and one that I just knew from around. I dropped the cookies and card off to the person I knew well. I then made countless excuses why I should just drop off the card instead of with the cookies. Was I going a little over the top with them? What if my cookies weren't good? What if I didn't have enough in the container? Was my bag too ratty? Will she think I am dork? She found the cookies on the porch and called right away. She really appreciated the thoughtfulness. I was afraid of taking the risk.

So the refrigerator is cleared off for now. For now, I am caught up on my good intentions. I'll keep passing it along and hope you will too.

Your post yesterday inspired me. I had a co-worker's birthday celebration today. I had already made her a card, but it didn't seem like enough. I made all of the excuses I could to not to anything else, and then I remembered your post.

On the way to work, with daughter in tow, I stopped at the grocery store and got my friend some flowers! I think she really appreciated them!

So, thanks for your post:)

And, who is this reader who sends cookies? How do I sign up?
