Something fun....Make someone smile today

This weekend was crazy! Busy but really good.

I am participating in a spiritual renewal this weekend coming, and as part of the team of facilitaters we have been training for several weeks. We had a fun team building exercise this weekend that I loved and wanted to share.

We sat in a circle and had cut out paper hearts that we were instructed to write our names on. We then passed them to the right and each person in the circle wrote something uplifting about the person whose name was on the heart. We then got them back and got to see what other's thought of us. Some were just one word expressions and some were full phrases...some were just "I love you"'s It makes me smile to think about it now. ;o)

I thought it would be fun to try that in blogger community. So here's the twist since we won't have paper hearts to pass to each other....

If you have a list of blogs that you read regularly go to them and share a little note of appreciation with them. What makes you read their blog? What do you like about them? Even if it's just the lay-out or the Share some love with someone today. If you aren't a usual post-er...maybe send an email to 10 of your friends to tell them you love them and are thinking about them, tell them why. Make them smile.

There's so much craziness and uncertainty in the world... let's share a smile with someone.

Andrea, I enjoy reading your blog because it really is uplifting. I love that it motivates me to be more of a positive force to the people around me.

I love this Andrea! I could say a million things about you my friend. You are loyal, trustworthy, sweet, a prayer warrior, a true and devoted friend. You are the kind of friend that I would feel that I could call in the middle of the night with a crisis, and you would think nothing of it. When you say you will pray, I know you will pray. I have personally felt your prayers working in my life.
Now, if God would only allow us to actually see one another in person, our friendship would be all the more special!

Andrea I appreciate you Sweetie and the down to earth way you share your life and heart with us.

I like your idea. It's something I do regularly I hope in the comments I leave for people. It's important to share with people to bless them.

Love ya!
