How do you judge if a blog party was a success? Well I really don’t know as I have never been to one before. In fact I have never even heard of one before, although I am sure they are out there somewhere.
So I am going to judge it as I would any other party that being based on how much fun did I have? Based on that it was a GREAT PARTY. I had a wonderful time. I visisted with some dear friends and met some new people I now consider friends. What could be better than that?
Well, I can tell you what could be better than that. It is when your friends come with gifts. Maybe, I am a greedy guy but when I invited all to my special celebration, I did indeed ask them for a gift. Oh, what wonderful gifts did I receive. Gifts came from as far away as Australia and South Africa and I am not even sure from where else. I thank all so very very much.
What were these gifts that I ask for and received in such abundance. Simple random acts of kindness. I know everyone leads such busy lives and throughout each day perform countless acts of kindness without thinking or it or even mabe realizing it at the time. My request was that everyone specifically LOOK for a chance to perform one more, just one more. and then carry through with it. The gift to me was then, having my guests stop by (a wonderful gift in itself) and tell me about what they had done.
My dear friends didn’t let me down, to the party they came with their stories of the acts they had performed. All so wonderful, I thank all so very much, I am such a very lucky man to have the friends I do. I thank God for all. Yesterday, the world was indeed a better place because of YOU.
I believe performing random acts of kindness is always a win/win situation. Huh, I am just sitting here sipping my coffee and I glanced at my cup. On it is a saying that pretty much says it all: “Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves”.
Any act of kindness when done from the heart is a beautiful thing.When it is done not because it is expected or done expecting some sort of reward, it comes from the heart. Performing such acts can’t help but begin to give us a warm glowing feeling within our hearts. As that feeling grows we begin to see ourselves for being the kind and wonderful people we really are.
To all my dear blogging friends, I am so glad you are exactly who you are. Wonderful, kind hearted, generous people. I am so proud to have you as friends.
