30 Days of Service Update and Multitude Mondays

So, how are your 30 Days of Service going? We've had a blast thinking of things to do for people each day. Most of our "acts of kindness" have been small, but deliberate. So far, we have: 
*Given a big tip to a waitress and invited her to the Easter service at our church
*Taken a friend's kids cocoa on a cool, overcast morning
*Given a thank you note w/a See's gift card to a doctor that worked on a Sunday in order to help Mr. C w/his ear infection
*Sent special letters to the kids we sponsor through Compassion International
*Given a Jamba Juice gift card/thank you to a dad who volunteers every week to play soccer with a group of kids
*Helped a neighbor haul brush
*Paid for the person behind me in the drive-thru at Starbucks and left a note wishing them a happy day and inviting them to church
*Made fudge babies for a friend as a thank you
*Sang a special song to my {93-year-old} grandma that her mom used to sing to her, she used to sing to my mom, my mom used to sing to me, and now I sing to my girls:

*Donated clothes and diapers to a mom in need

So, you see, most of our acts haven't been difficult, but they've required a bit of thought. It really has been a blessing so far...can't wait for the next few weeks to see what else we get to do!
