Today is a Diet Coke day!



Today was a chocolate and Diet Coke day. My 2-day headache arrived with my picnic, as my dear friend, Melanie http://melaniecdesigns.blogspot.com/ would say. Nothing makes my headache go away. I wake up with it and I sleep with it for 2 long days. So, I nurse myself back to health with my delicious Diet Coke and my chocolate. As you can tell, diet is only in my soda and was not part of my New Year's resolution. This year I didn't make a resolution and then, I happen upon a blog with the 29 days sign on it. I clicked on the link http://givingchallenge.ning.com/ and was so inspired that I joined it. Day 29-my gift was simple and odd. I made it so that someone that was on the entrance ramp on the highway could get on it. I moved over. It was that simple. Today, (Day 28) I mailed a box of goodies to my friend, Vicki. It is funny what I noticed as soon as I joined the 29 days, all the nice acts around me. Today, at the post office, someone held the door for me and allowed me to get in front of them even though I offered them back their place in line. The line was long....out the door. The selfless gentlemen held both doors and refused to take his place in front of me. He wasn't older, maybe in his mid thirties. Maybe he joined 29 Days too!

Missed you in blogland.. Glad all is well and that you are back. I am a pepsi girl and when I get a bad headache, herbal tea is it for me and I can't eat a thing. I hope you are feeling better.. I like the 29 day challenge. you did some sweet acts of service and kindness. Great idea for the new year..

Oh girl I feel for you! I just got over my picnic and it was NO picnic let me tell ya! I totally believe that as soon as you perform one act of kindness- it's like a domino effect- and so many nice things will happen to you! Thanks so much for your awesome comment on my blog! It means a lot to me!!!

I have no doubt that you didn't need encouraging to do kind things - it just comes naturally to you! No resolutions here either...just determined to "make the most of each day, and be kind to others (even when I don't want to!)", lol. I have the same headache - taking 3 Advil is the only thing that makes a dent in it, and that doesn't always work. Diet Coke and chocolate? Always a good idea ;)

Oh so sorry about your headache...hope the chocolate helps:) Random acts of kindness...they really do happen. Lot of good people out there; and you are one of them!
