Today I’m going to do some of my thoughtful things online. Usually the kiddos and I go out and do random things for random people, often times they have no idea who helped them, and this is what makes us feel even better about it. We know we did it, and that’s all that matters!! We don’t feel the need to be acknowledged for every good deed that we do for someone. Sometimes I think it is the anonymousness that makes it even more fun!!!
So what prompted me to do my thoughtfulness online this time?? Another person’s blog post!! Recently her and her husband had to put money in the parking meter and when they parked they realized they still had an hour from someone else’s money on their meter, but the one next to them had expired, so the wife put the money in that one instead. This caused a little “talk…shall we call it” between her and her husband about whether or not this constituted a “good deed.”
Here’s her story…..
I completely side with her...it was definitely a “good deed!!” So what if the owner of that car never knows who might have saved them from a parking ticket, but I bet they appreciate the thoughtfulness of that really nice anonymous stranger who was nice enough to help them out, JUST BECAUSE!!
Readers….what do you think?? Was this a good deed?? Let her know……
While you’re at it….become a new follower of hers, she’s good for at least a laugh a day :)
I’m also going to promote a couple of great giveaways that are going on right now at other peoples blogs…this not only shows you some great giveaways that you might not have known about and win you some great swagg, it might get these blogs some more followers, and it also might count as thoughtfulness on my part as well as get myself some extra entries in these same giveaway drawings…lol. You know, kill two birds and all that.....lol
