🍲 Make Soup & Share it with a Neighbor 🍲

Cozy. Comfort. Caring.

These are the words I associate with a steaming bowl of soup.

Think about your neighbors. Is someone shut-in, down on their luck, or could use cheering up?

Make a pot of soup, write a note and deliver it to them today (or this weekend).

Warm up their weekend, and life, with love from your kitchen.

What's your favorite soup to give?

🍵 Share and challenge a friend!

THE GIVING CHALLENGE-Day 3

💌 Leave a kind note for someone in your household. 💌

When I was in high school my dad would leave me notes of encouragement in my car. I'd find them in the morning as I was getting ready to go to school.

My husband does the same thing.

The notes are never long but the words are thoughtful and help me start my day on a positive "note."

Grab a piece of paper, a notecard or a post-it and leave a note or two around the house for your loved ones to find.

Smile at Strangers

Walk down any street in the US and pay attention to the number of people passing by with smiles on their face.

I've noticed, at times, it is hard to find one.

What I've also realized is if I smile, and make eye contact, chances are I get a smile back.

Brighten up the life of a stranger with a free gift, your smile!

And as Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."

I have a feeling there are a lot of people in the world that could use some love today.
