I'm going RAOK

Today I was reading a blog about a lady who did 38 random acts of kindness for her 38th birthday.   What a stud right?? you can read about it here

Anyways, fast forward a couple hours and I found myself getting things ready for the tomorrow and realizing that we had no milk.  I personally don't care much for cow juice....BUT Chase doesn't know what to do with himself if he doesn't have cold cereal available for breakfast.  So I found enough kindness in my heart to make a quick run to the grocery store.

While in the checkout line at the grocery store the gift cards started staring me down.  After a quick evaluation of whether I should spend Christmas decor money on a gift card for a stranger or on things to make my house beautiful I decided it was a no brain er and purchased a gift card without taking a moment to look back. (Everyone knows how impulsive I can be)

I quickly left the store wondering what I should now do with the newly purchased gift card and decided to leave it on a car.  

I went RAOK!!!

I decided that I should start trying to do a RAOK everyday.  I have tried this before and the results are always excellent.  I truly am the one who has benefited the most.

I really recommend that you try too!!! pay it forward, perform a random act of kindness, make someones day!

That's all:)
