What Did You Do For Your Birthday?

raok20For my 35th birthday, I celebrated the fact that I could run for President.  For my 36th, I don’t even recall it being a big deal.  But after reading how Robyn celebrated hers with 38 random acts of kindness, I know how I want to spend my next one!

She did everything from buying doughnuts for policemen to leaving money at vending machines.  From bringing clothes to the needy to a note for her mailman.

I’ve always wanted to make a difference in someone else’s life at Christmastime, but I never thought of doing it for my birthday.

What about you?  Go over and visit the post by clicking the image or the link above and tell me that you are not challenged to make “your day” more about others than yourself!

Fence Posts

As some of you are aware, Monday was my birthday and I planned to take the day off and enjoy my family.  My brother and his wife were in town for their vacation, and he decided that he’d like to help me tackle a project that my wife and I wanted to do for over 3 years– put up a fence in our small back yard to help my wife watch our kids when they go outside.

So, instead of spending some time writing posts over the weekend, I found myself working on posts– holes for them, panels and gates to attach to them, and driving around to get them.  Let’s just say that I should have been blogging the whole adventure, and I won’t bore you with the details.
