31 Days: Days 11, 12 and 13 Recap

Last weekend I asked what you guys thought about me blogging every single day (since it feels weird blogging on the weekend) or saving my RAKs from the weekend and blogging on Monday.

Rachelle was the only one to give me input, and I took her advice. I saved them all for you guys today. ;) Since they're all short and sweet, it works. For some reason, I always feel weird posting a post that doesn't say much. 

So, here they are!

October 11th - I got Nate's anniversary gift. Which to me, I didn't think counted as a RAK since it's a GIFT. But once Nate explained it, I decided that it's definitely a RAK. I bought him the new Madden video game for his PS3. He's only been talking about it forever, so I knew it'd be something that he'd definitely use and appreciate. While it makes him happy, it means I have to deal with him sitting in front of the TV and yelling. Oh well, at least I got a book finished this weekend. ;)

October 12th - Nate and I were at the fair, and as we were leaving a dog show, there were a lot of people waiting to walk out of the stadium. You know that weird situation where you're trying to get out of your seat and into the line to get out (it happens at the movies or weddings, too) and no one will let you in so you're the last out? Well, I stopped and let quite a few people in front of me since no one else was letting them. They all seemed gracious and an older woman even touched my hand and said I was sweet.

October 13th - I went to Half Price Books to donate some magazines and take a few DVDs in. I had a pad of Post Its in my purse and immediately went to the Self Help section. I wrote "You are worthy" on one and put it in a book about help with depression. I wrote "This Too Shall Pass" and put it in a book about help for widows. And then I wrote "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and put it in a book about help with anxiety. It made me feel really good knowing that someone who needs a smile will find these and hopefully it'll help along with the book. I would've taken pics to share with y'all, but I already felt awkward writing and opening books because there were workers everywhere. I felt like one kept watching me, probably thought I was writing in the actual book, HA! oops.

Did you perform and random acts of kindness this weekend? Please share with me. I'd love to hear! :)

Love the post-its! And you're right, giving Nate the game is kind. I am secretly glad my husband stopped playing Madden because entire days are lost when the game is new to them!

It's amazing how something as simple as letting people in during heavy traffic, or at a sports game where it's crowded will make people very appreciative. It doesn't have to be huge, the little things count too!

I love that you put post-its intentionally into books with appropriate sayings for them...that was a special thing to do!

Rachelle @ Inner Loop Adventures said...

I LOVE the notes in the book idea, very awesome! And letting people pass first - as long as you're not in a hurry, why not? P.S. I can't believe nobody else responded!
