Reached out to a junior high school friend by sending her a Xmas card. She was so happy I did that. We keep in touch by text as it is easier for us. She told other high school pals I was in town, and now I have lots of catching up to do with them!

All this from one simple act, one card.

The cat got reunited with her family! The six year old had been writing letters to Santa to bring the cat home. The parents thought the cat was gone after the zero degree weather. They were very happy we took care of the cat.

The trap did not catch the cat that the owner was trying to catch, but it caught another cat which was lost!

Sent more food and a nice battery candle to my elderly neighbor.

Got in touch with a friend from my youth! Been catching up with her. Haven't been in contact since my early college days. Time sure does fly.

Been trying to shelter and feed various outdoor cats. Been a lot of inside cats getting out! Several have been reunited with their owners. One is still outstanding. The owner placed a trap in our garage as a cat has been feeding from there. Hopefully the garage will at least give her a place to stay to keep from freezing. Praying the cat gets reunited with her owner!

Continue to send some food, mainly fresh fruit to my neighbor and talk to her via phone to stay in touch. She started to order her own food, but still I offer to get her whatever she needs. The fresh fruit is always appreciated.

I am doing something nice for myself and my sis! I just bought a reclining bike which will keep stats for different users and the seat is easy to adjust. I also bought the service to put it together. I always mean to put it together myself, but I delay in doing it....

I am trying to be nice to my blood glucose and will be using it for ten minutes each mealtime!

Hey there, Colorful Sparkers -
Just weeding out more from my unread mail and saw an email adverting an adult coloring book from Dr. Gary Chapman, PhD from his "Five Love Languages" series. There are some sample pages that I thought some might enjoy:

www.5lovelanguages.com/resource/insp
ir
ational-adult-coloring-book/


Seemed like a nice thoughtful mixture of inspirational quotes and beautiful scenery to color while one meditates on the quote.

Enjoy!

I don't know how well this coupon will be visible, but it's rebate information for $5 rebate from a list of Sanfor Sharpie Adult coloring kits - the rebates expire June 12, 2017 and have to be received by June 29, 2017. Additional information st:

Some appear to be items sold at Walmart stores in all 50 states and D.C. Sorry - not applicable for international members. The promotion just started this past Sunday, 4-23-3017 so you may be able to find places that will offer these qualifying products on sale and then still able to obtain the additional US$5.00 off? (Sometimes that happens!). Will have RJ save your original cash register receipt. I found this in the Sunday coupon inserts but don't believe you actually have to have it - just the other receipts and proof of purchases and mail then to the addresss in the website or on this graphic. Hope this helps out $$ to support your coloring habits!

Thank you Elayne and Paula. emoticon

I am sorry to hear that your poodle has a heart problem. My kitty, Tippy, got diagnosed with congestive heart failure. She lived to a good old age--approximately 18 years. I had her for 12.years.

Poodles are extra special poochie, people!

emoticon emoticon

Larry is around 13 years old possibly older. I adopted him when his approximate age was 5 years old.

Awww. Becca I feel so bad for you and Larry.. How old is he?

We just found out that our Blackjack ( miniature toy poodle) is in congestive heart failure too. He has been on heart meds and a water pill for a month now.. I believe he has had it about a couple of months before that because he has all the symptom then but when we took him to the vet he just said the breathing that to us apeared to be somewhat labored was his allegies getting worse. . then when we took him in last month he said it was congestive heart failure... he had just gone deaf in those last 2 months too.. cateracts have started to appear as well as teeny tiny bumps on his skin that he says are warts all signs of aging.

But they seem to come on so quickly without any type of gradual signs.. he is now about 13 years old which is old for a tiny poodle.. he is so lovable I just don't want to see him age or pass on.. *sigh* *tears* ... It is so nice that you are comforting to him.

Bj always cuddles with us all day as long as we are sitting down otherwise he follow you everywhere always has. . We have had him for 11 years now actually he is my son's my mom got him for him since he is disabled it would be one that wouldn't knock him down and he could easily pick him up all 8lbs of him.. :)

Last night, when my boy Larry couldn't be comforted, I put him up in bed and spooned him. He has such a sweet aura. The spooning calmed him down.

Larry is my sweet poodle mix who is having heart failure. He is on plenty of meds for seizures, anxiety, and stuff, and now, the his heart is failing him.

I will be there for him when it is his time.

Sure, it counts, Stress. I grew up around a bro who had mental issues, so I know it is very, very hard. Hang in there. You did a very good turn in adopting him.

That is really cool, Sassy. I know your pal will enjoy what you give her.

Also, great job, Lucy. Giving really helps both parties!

A friend of mine gave me 10 dollars in a card and I decided to give it to another person who could really use it. I was so glad I did, as that person was so grateful, you would of thought, I gave a hundred. Some people are so happy to get so little others I know expect so much more and are never happy no matter what you give. Anyway, made me feel very good.

STRESS80, You helped your son so that counts. I am sorry he's having such a hard time. You and your hubby were awesome to adopt him although it isn't easy to raise him with his mental illness.

I have a friend who is also Max's vet.Her name is Melanie, (Mel) She plays violin and tympani in our church orchestra. She bought the 2 tympanies for the church. Anyway, when I was coloring musical instruments I did a violin for her which she loved. But there wasn't a tympani. So, I have a cute one on our tree. It has hands and it is plying itself. So, I wrapped it up and will give it to her tomorrow at rehearsal.

does letting my 15 year old son Jeremy survive the day count as something nice for someone? This is my second time around doing an teenager. We adopted him from my brother who was into drugs for awhile and was doing them around him so we talked and talked to him to let us into adopting him when he was about 4.

Now due to his own mental illness is really hard.and the fact that we both came out a live is amazing.

I was so touched to read about your energy and willingness to help people in need after the storm. One might think you would need some time off from your charitable acts but you're already chomping at the bit to get out into the world and do some more random acts of kindness. : ) You are such an emoticon person!

People like you are what make this world a better place for everyone.

After tropical storm/hurricane Hermine, I helped the yard peeps by going out and picking up all the storm debris. It filled two trash containers full! I also picked up some debris from my neighbor's lawn, as they are away and I didn't know if they had anyone scheduled to do it.

That's a big nice for someone. Again, though, I didn't leave home to do it.

Hoping to get back to the world at some point and do nice things for others out there. lol!

I look for the big stuff, like when an online flower company charged me three times for one order. Of course, that was on my credit card, but I almost fell off the chair when I saw that!

I don't get out too often:

Still helping Sis. Made sure everything was done today. Cooked her good meals, too. Did dishes. She was going through a difficult time trying to resolve my Aunt's insurance issues.

Plus, we love to eat good meals! She offered to pay for dinner tonight, but I don't think too many peeps would be delivering with a tropical storm. I poached fish with sliced onions and sweet potatoes. Sounds weird but is so good.

Good "jobs" ladies. Does turning the picture for Becca count? I really need to get out more. My last good deeds were two weeks ago. One was holding the door open on a rainy day for a man struggling to keep an umbrella over him while using a walker at one store and then at Aldi's I gave my cart to a lady trying to dig a quarter out of her purse while holding a baby and keeping a toddler from walking off.

Very cute. I love labs!

Today, I cleaned all the machines in the little workout room at the PT place. I never think the workers pay much attention to me, but they sure did when I was cleaning. They said I didn't have to do that, and did I want a job! lol!

We are supposed to clean the machines after our workouts, and several peeps didn't do that. Just doing my part! I used to clean the break room in my prior workplaces. Sometimes, it just takes a little time to get a nice atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.

Since the creation of this thread, I'm discovering that there are a lot of people who do simple acts of kindness that seem to cross my path. Let me share a really cute one that happened to me today!

I was out for my morning walk, when I saw coming towards me a woman and a small dog. It turned out that the small dog was a 10 week old yellow Labrador Retriever named Lily. She was the most adorable pup ever. She was calm and very friendly (evidenced by numerous puppy kisses!). However, I felt her best attribute was her HUGE smile. Throughout our brief time together she kept looking up at me with a big goofy grin. I also got to hold her and she still had that chubby belly of healthy puppy. So cute! I told her owner that this brief encounter totally made my day!

So for all the animal lovers who may read this, I have included a picture of a yellow Labrador Retriever pup. The dog is of similar age to Lily and has a smile that looks very similar to the one that Lily was flashing at me today. Perhaps this picture will put a smile on your face like Lily put one on mine today. : )



I hope you all had a great day.

Hi everyone,

Today I had someone do something nice for me and I wanted to share it. The kind gesture was super simple but it made me smile and I am still smiling. : )

I like to ride my bike around a local lake for part of my exercise routine. Each lap is a little over four miles. When I go there, I usually go around the lake 5-6 times. The lake is a very popular place for cyclists, runners, walkers, kayakers, etc. It's a beautiful spot.

Today there was an older gentleman who was running around the lake and because a person on a bike is able to go much faster than a person running I passed him multiple times. The first time I passed him I just waved to him and smiled but the second time we passed he decided that he would give me some encouragement. Because he was breathing hard due to running he chose to use a friendly gesture by giving me a HUGE smile and the "shaka sign". It is sometimes known as "hang loose" sign and is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii and surf culture. I passed him one more time after this and he gave me the same HUGE smile and the shaka sign once again.

The gesture surprised me and made me smile since I live far away from any surf-type culture and that gesture is often associated with a much younger generation. I just LOVED his sense of fun and his friendly nature. It totally made my day! : )

So to anyone who reads this today....


Have a great day.

This weekend my husband and I went to a local tourist destination that involved traveling up a very tall tower to see a panoramic view of the landscape from miles around. There was a troop of young National Guard soldiers who were visiting the site too. There was one particular soldier who was very nervous and hung back time and time again as his peers loaded into the elevator to ride to the top of the tower. He then came over to me and asked, "How tall is the tower? I am deathly afraid of heights." He then shared that he wanted to remain with his troop but he didn't think that he was going to be able to overcome his fear of heights. I then spent the next few minutes (while waiting for the elevator to return) doing everything I could to try and reassure him that the top of the tower had many protective measures built in the inside to make all visitors feel safe while allowing them to still be able to enjoy the view. I told him how I too was not very fond of heights but I did not feel afraid when I was up there because the walls were so thick and the railings prevented you from getting anywhere near the edge. As the minutes went on I could see the fear in his eyes lessen and when the elevator came back down he said "You know I think I am going to go try and join my friends. Thank you."

This brief interaction totally made my day and his! : )

I sent a card to a friend who is recovering from breast cancer. It's nice to get something personal in the mail.

Coolness!

Today, I chatted with an elderly man at physical therapy. It made us both happy!

While grocery shopping I gave a smile to a child in a stroller. He giggled and got all excited. His mom said, "Oh my goodness. He NEVER does that". It not only delighted the little man - it made my day as well. : )

Here, we can share what we've done for someone that is nice. It could be holding a door open for someone, giving someone a goodie, or sharing a smile etc. It could be anyone on the receiving end, the stranger at the grocery, a friend, a relative, or a Spark Pal.

I gave one of my coloring pals a "just because" present. It was a set of imitation copic markers, as she has troubles with her hands. (Copic markers are very easy on arthritic hands.)

She was so happy and said that she was up until 11:30 last night having fun with them. She is not a member here, but she loves to color!

My mom gave me "just because" presents. They are the sweetest to give!
