37 Good Deeds.

003

Day one: MN to Elkhart, IN! (M's laying down in the back so you can't see her.)

006

Day two: Elkhart, IN to Harrisburg, PA!

Tomorrow J turns 37 and we're on the road for celebrating this year.

005


I don't think he minds in the least.

We're staying here and going to make his birthday as special as we can away from home.

I love birthdays and I always want to make everyone feel so special on their day.

There won't be a party or any pre-planned celebration. After 1100 miles Sunday and Monday, we're staying put in Pennsylvania until Wednesday for a catch up and relax a bit day.

But still I've been racking my brain of how to make it special.

And I've finally come up with something that will mean a lot to him. More than lots of presents and streamers and even the homemade cake. {He has no idea what I'm doing right now.}

Between Tuesday morning and Friday night, do something kind for someone else.

Maybe that means helping an old woman at the grocery store walk her groceries to the car. Or giving that overwhelmed mom with her hands full your set of arms for a minute.

Maybe it's doing the "Drive Thru Difference" and paying for someone elses coffee. Or fast food. Or something.

Maybe it's sending a card to someone terminally ill who doesn't have long left but deserves a reason to smile.

Maybe it's not getting into it with your spouse when they come home 20 minutes late or leave their dirty clothes on the bedroom floor.


Whatever it is that you can do, do it.

Come back here and leave a comment with what you did in honor of J's 37th birthday.

{For those of you who like to read but tell me you never comment, it's really really easy and you don't need an account. Just click on anonymous and sign your name with your comment. It's safe, promise!}

If we can get 37 {or MORE!} good deeds in honor of J, I'll have random.org choose a winner for a $10 Starbucks giftcard.

004

Starbucks off of the turnpike in OH. I-80.

Yesterday I had to run down to the Court House and file garnishment papers. As I was putting my 50 cent in the meter, It came to mind what I should do, as I walk through the parking lot I dropped 25 cents in every meter I passed, 2 of which were expired.
J I'm sure you had a wonderful Birthday.. You are so Blessed.
S you are an inspiration to me.
Love You All
Auntie Laurie

PS. Your vacations inspire me- did you know that I planned our honeymoon to San Francisco after reading a blog post of yours about how you had such a fun vacation there? It's true.

I did a great deed in honor of Jeff! I played "Just Lunch' with two co-workers who are single and looking for love! I hooked them up and sent them to lunch so they could "get to know" each other. I think it went well!! :)

Hope you guys are hving a great trip! My good deed in honor of J's birthday was today, I offered to drive some supplies that were needed out to one of the other clinics. We have a courier that goes between the clinics, but my driving them myself got them to where they needed to be faster and therefore made the people at the clinic's job easier!

Happy Birthday Jeff!
In honor of your Birthday (and Grant's) we spent it at the MOA going on rides. :) While we were at the mall we were able to pass along a few useful coupons (B1G1 at Noodles, $5off Cold Stone, and $10/25 along with $1 kids meals at Rainforest Cafe) to other families, who were all most appreciative.
