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:
PLAY
LOVE
HUGS
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!}
Jamie
