Day 9 of the Random Act of Kindness challenge and thankful Tuesday!.

It is going to be another beautiful day. As much as I enjoy my new part time, full time position I love being at home as well. I have been able to give the gifts of kindness that I really enjoy over the last few days. I will work on being a better planner and will start using my day timer to stay organized so that I can plan for more RAKS and keep my commitments. I am sad to say that I missed our PTA board meeting and truly had intentions on going but got caught up with the early morning and time with Demi getting her mind ready for her day today.

I hope you will find or make time to give the gift of your choice today. I found a few sites yestesrday that I want to share with you for some great ideas.

If you know of anymore please feel free to add them or let me know and I will keep a running log of these websites and blogs.

At one or more of these sites you can actually print business size cards to hand out or leave at the register for the next person in line or drive through window explaining they have just been RAKked...pretty cool huh?

Here is my short thankful list for today:
1. the gift of life
2. second chances to get it right
3. god's blessings and his protection today
4. faith, family and friends
5. my new part time position(s)
6. sunshine and fall weather
7. nature and it's beauty/colors and temperatures
8. positive people
9. B12 and energy and my swine flu shot
10.our good health - my life insurance policy- there is comfort in knowing that my dd will be taken care of should I be called home to heaven
11.My new kit for my DT position
12.our photo shoot on Sunday and fun family time together :-)
13.Being a mom, aunt, dd, sister, friend, business owner, an appreciated worker at my new job


There are many more but today those are the first 13 I came up with and will embrace. What are you thankful for today?

Again I hope you will enjoy your day and the blessings our heavenly father sends your ways. I am going to be catching up on my house, creating a few things with my new kit to include cards and layouts and praying that my girls have a great day today. Nadja is playing in her first tournament today in keller. I hoope she does well and that Demi continues to do well in all her classes and that she and her friends will have a great recess since yesterday was not so great. I will also try to get some equipment donated to our school from some local businesses so the kids have some fun toys to play at recess.

Hugs,
Diana
