With that being said, as I looked at 2015 and thought about resolutions I pondered about what I would want mine to be. I realized that what I wanted most of all is to make this year less about me & more about others. I believe firmly that God gave me this challenge and this outlet for a reason. I want to glorify Him in all that I do, and I felt like the perfect way to do it would be Random Acts of Kindness.
On any given day I have a hard time complaining because I know all the ways God has blessed my life. No matter the circumstances I begin each prayer giving thanks for all the good I experienced that day. I also know that so many others are out there really hurting (emotionally, physically or both), and those really tough times are hard to get through. When someone feels down and out its hard to see the blessings or feel the love. Often times they feel more alone than ever & think that no one cares.
So, for my Random Acts of Kindness project of 2015 I am asking you all if you know someone who could use some extra love. This is not limited to Lyme disease or any disease for that matter. This is about anyone who is having a hard time in any way shape or form. If you know a caregiver who could use a smile, or someone facing any kind of tough time please submit their names. For each month I will choose a person from your submissions and will send them a personalized gift basket which is completely anonymous. It will simply show up on their doorstep and my idea is to fill it with items that will lift them up, and hopefully bring them joy.
If you know someone who can use this please send me a direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the persons name, back story/info & address. All information will be strictly confidential and also all gifts will be delivered anonymously. The more info you can give me on their likes/dislikes and what things make them happy the more personalized I can make it.
I want to thank everyone who has something kind to say to me, or has lifted me up throughout the years. It's a long road to travel, but knowing that I have people behind me giving support has always meant the world.
