300 to go…
Yesterday was a great day! It was busy! It was long. However, as I looked for the bright side of everything, I learned that I was having a fun day. I hope I was dragging others along for the ride.
I started my day by writing my blog and billing out some work. I went to school and taught a class about the sound board and a little about sound design. We gave notes for the play we have next week and then we loaded up some flats to take to a different location. I had painted a drop for my friend that works at a middle school the next town over. We loaded up 2 car loads with masks and costumes that we were borrowing, and I quickly went back to town to say good-bye to my son. He is moving to a different state to heal, work, and hopefully go to school. I hurried back to the school to get help unloading the masks and costumes. I waited for 3 voice lessons who didn’t show up or canceled. Then I directed 65 kids through some acting exercises for the musical we are beginning. We had a quick break and then I took notes for the play that opens next week. Finally, at 9:30 pm, I got to go home.
This busy day gave me plenty of opportunities to laugh and giggle. I was super tired at the end of the day. Bu it was a good day.
Today I thought I would spread kindness – a two in one – kind of act. My high school age daughter LOVES hot chocolate from Dutch Brothers (we are not coffee drinkers). I though I might surprise her at school with a cup of hot chocolate. Then, it occurred to me that I could spread kindness at the Ditch Brother’s drive through.
I could leave a tip and a thank-you at Dutch Brothers. (You could leave a tip and a thank you note in the tip jar of your favorite coffee/hot chocolate shop).
I worked at a local sub sandwich shop back in high school. I worked hard. I am sure that the people working at Dutch Brothers work just as hard. I bet they would appreciate a bit of a tip in the tip jar! I would have. Putting a little “good job!” or “Thanks for your great service” note in their jar might brighten their day too! Good work should be acknowledged. People love to feel appreciated.
Share the love!
