What Can You Do In A Day?

Good Morning, Good Morning!
I'm trying to think of new ways to make a difference. Little ways, big ways, asking for ideas, finding ideas. I am having soooo much fun doing it! It can be free or cost very little. Earlier this week I bought several bags of candy corn, divided them into smaller bags, tied and tagged them with notes that said " maybe a little corny but thanks for your support". The staff I work with are the very BEST! One day I put bottles of bubbles in my friend's mail cubbies with a note that said "you're never too old to be young!".

soooo,  saying "thank you" is really pretty darn easy!

Yesterday I stopped at The French Confection bakery and picked up fresh baked crossiants for a few of my co-workers ... just 'cause.

   I had so much funny handing them out and seeing the surprise on my co-workers faces.......
I did it again today for the 5 Security Guards, the Principal and 2 Guidance Counselors.
man was it fun!

It's 9:10 am and I can't stop smiling!

P.S. I had my usual java and a strawberry and cream croissant (not my usual or I'd be HUGE) = no calories on Fridays.
(lunch = salad dinner = salad breakfast tomorrow = salad)
Life is just a chair of bowlies! Jenn

God's fingerprints on my life... the ability to smile and try to do good. I don't always win but I always try.
