BLOG – GIFT DAY 333 :: a month of inspiration :: four-letter words

29 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I am inspired to share four-letter words.

But first… let me share this.

It may have been “Black Friday” everywhere else in the world, but around here I celebrated Cranberry Sauce Friday…

…and Turkey Leftover Friday
…and Mashed Potatoes Leftover Friday

All with tons of cranberry sauce!

I also spent some time cleaning out my email — part of my goal this week. In the middle of my email purge, I found a note from my friend Diane. I am compelled to share it tonight with you.

It’s a story about food shopping and unseen acts of kindness. 

In Diane’s words, this is what happened while she waited in line to pay for groceries. A gentleman stood before her, as the story goes…


“He was buying bottles of wine – he said he was getting presents for people in his office.  I smiled and said that is so nice–and then, while I was waiting for him to pay up, I said “I think I’ll get a present for myself, look, they have dark chocolate bars, my favorite, they say it’s even good for you!”

So he paid up and went off, and I put my stuff on the counter.  (Feasting on the bar).To my clerk pal I said: “Oh, and don’t forget the chocolate bar!”  To which he replied:   “That gentleman paid for it.”He’d gone before I could say thank you.

I’m not sure if I’ve told you about another good four-letter word:  UAKS:
Unseen Acts of Kindness.”

Diane loves 4-letter words.  
She taught me to pay attention to them. It’s a game she plays with her grandchildren but I think it’s a game we can all PLAY — see how easy it is!

There are tons of four-letter words worth sharing:
and now UAKS.

May you share the magic of UAKS this holiday season. Whether it is Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Cyber Monday.

Cranberry sauce anyone?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless!}

{what’s your fave four-letter word?}
