It’s five days late but we are putting the final touch on our ’31 Days’ Project.
We missed days 25 and 30 (Day 7 too, but we’re working on something for that one. It’s just taken a bit.
Day 25: Serve someone in the community.
I was tickled to see Miss Bee got in on the fun…
This particularly task became dear to me. Several weeks ago, the local news reported on a man who was killed in a terrible accident. We all know the people in these stories have families but we often don’t have a connection to those most directly affected. This time, I did. A sweet friend of mine knows the family he left behind.
During a recent conversation we decided to create a ‘Bad Day Box’ full of gifts wrapped for each person in the family. Whenever any of them are feeling particularly lonely for their daddy/husband, they can open one of these gifts. It won’t come even close to soothing their heartache, but maybe it will help them feel a little less alone.
My friend and I recruited more help then went on our ways. Tonight I delivered my offering and was completely overwhelmed. I don’t even know the others involved but together we pooled our resources and came up with something extraordinary. You know what they say about strength in numbers…
Day 30: Take a picture of a kiss.
And lastly, this may be my favorite. To top off the month, a picture perfect kiss, compliments of Mr. & Mrs. Bee…it makes my heart all aflutter! (Bonus for anyone who can identify where they are!)
While it’s certainly not as exciting, our kiss at my favorite burger joint over the best fries in town still made me week in the knees…
So there you have it! The final touches to our challenge. Thanks for following along. And Miss Bee, thanks for making another summer special for our family!
