So, I had hoped to do 29 more RAKs by my birthday.  Seeing as my birthday is Thursday, I don’t think it will happen.  I’m thinking I’m going to have to span this quest over the YEAR of my 35th birthday – which is not a bad thing really – it means I’ll be focusing on doing nice things on a frequent basis is all.

Recently, I send a couple friends cards.  I suppose I’ll count this as number seven.  Two very different friends, two very different cards but both cards spoke to me and literally screamed that person’s name.  You guys know who you are – I love you.

So, my quest will continue.  28 more to go.  I’d still be honored if any of my readers would like to chip in and do something nice, even a small gesture over this week in honor of my birthday.  Every act of kindness counts.  

With my birthday on Thanksgiving this year, I have a ton to be thankful for.  I am thankful for my friends, my family, my husband, my baby, and our “puppies”.  I’m thankful for good health, a roof over our heads, reliable vehicles to get us to and from work, money to pay for utilities, gas for our cars, and food for our bellies.  I feel like I can’t even give each of these things enough weight in words but it’s major.  Seeing friends dealing heartbreak, sadness and many different struggles definitely leave me very thankful for what I have and quite heartbroken for them.  I wish I could make it all better for all of them.

I really never want to take anything for granted although I guess from time to time we all do.  I know this year, I will hug everyone just a little tighter.  

Best wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
