I read this post about a year ago, and it has stuck in my head. I think of it often, and how I could incorporate, just a little, some of this into my life. Doesn't it sound like fun? Unfortunately, I often allow myself to become bogged down in the muck of my own responsibilities. I really struggle to look up and see the bigger picture. I have also found myself with a certain internal ache, because while I love the idea of doing such lovely gestures for strangers, I realize I don't do enough for the people close to me whom I love so dearly. Sure, I am doing all day long. But not with my heart in the right place. Doing to get it done isn't really the way I want to live!
To start, I'm getting a care package ready for my mom. I wish I could say it is a totally random-I-love-you! kind of package, but not so. She is always helping me out, even though she lives far away, and I don't do enough to thank her. So, really, this one is just long over due. But, it sure is a step in the right direction.
I really hope these end up in my care package....because I really didn't want to take them off...obviously, I've got a long way to go with this.
