Kernels of Kindness - Breathing For Laura

I have been following a website for a while, and I truly feel for this family.

I reached out and sent Johnny a message, almost not expecting to hear back.  People are busy, and when going through grief, sometimes it takes all you have to just make a post in a day.

I heard back pretty quickly, which was awesome.  I had asked him if he had a PO box, and he does.

I have seen him post a lot of pictures of his daughters at Yogurtland, so I sent a $50 gift card to Yogurtland for them to enjoy.

Kernels of Kindness: Make me something...

I reached out to my friend Erin, who sells her art on Etsy, and I asked her to make me something.

I love supporting friends.

I left it up to her, what she made...
She sent me a portrait of me and Bandit.

Thank you, Erin!  Bandit and I love it... and it sits proudly on my entertainment unit in the living room!

Kernels of Kindness... Flowers

It is time to start my Kernels of Kindness RAOKS!

I figured it was appropriate to start with a RAOK for my friend Angie, who nominated me for this amazing prize!

I sent her flowers...

Online picture:

The actual flowers: (Plus a balloon)

I think they are much prettier in "real life".
I hope you enjoy them, and thank you again for this awesome opportunity and for thinking of me, and nominating me.

It means the world to me!

Random Acts of Kindness Sunday...

Today, I got an itch to do some RAOKs...

I gave my friend a little treat at breakfast...
Trick or Treat...Smell my feet....
With some soft cozy socks.

Then I left a RAOK for our waitress...
I hope you have a BEARY great day... with some gummy bears.

On the way out, I gave a smilie balloon to a little boy...

This last one was not received well, and sort of put a damper on my morning.  I know better than to take it personally, but I did.
The boy was with who I would guess were his grandparents.
The grandmother was so incredibly rude to me, gave me the dirtiest look and shoved the balloon away.

It honestly hurt my feelings, and sort of reminded me that I love to do these anonymously... But I also need to remember I should continue to do them because there are just some people out there who still dont understand random kindness... and they need to.
People need more of it in their lives.

RAOK: September 1st "Hope this helps you ROLL through the day!"

I shopped until I dropped today.  One of the stores in the mall that I went to, I gave this to my cashier.  She was very friendly, and good customer service is really hard to come by these days!

RAOK: August 24th "I O-FISH-ALLY hope you have a great day!"

Had lunch with my mentee today at Olive Garden.
Our waitress was really nice and friendly, so we left her a RAOK.
