JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 111 :: miracle monday

24 Apr

Kindness.

Today I start a new series. Miracle Mondays. Because I’m starting to notice miracles. And what better day than Monday to look for them.

Today’s miracle was a raccoon. Spotted outside my window. I have never seen a raccoon in the daylight. Actually, I’m not sure I have ever seen a raccoon in person in the “wild.”

So this, is my Miracle Monday:

May you find miracles in your Monday.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 110 :: kindly dreaming

23 Apr

Fashion.

I spent yesterday afternoon dreaming about fashion, fabric, cut and color. Mostly as an Assistant to our little niece. She was the brainchild behind these fashion visions:


I was her loyal assistant. And, I have to say, in the name of kindness, sometimes the most KIND thing to do is to help someone else flourish — or at least dream.

May you flourish this week.
And dream.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 108 :: 4-letter word friday

21 Apr

Shine.

As in, the sun was OUT today.

As I was driving through town I couldn’t stop hearing a dog bark. No matter where I turned I heard a dog barking. I thought I was hearing things until I looked up at the car in front of me and saw this:


If you look closely you can see the dog’s head poking out of the sunroof.

The pup was excited to be out or a drive, or excited to be on his way to the dog park, or praising the lord that the SUN was finally OUT.  Maybe all of the above.

No matter the reason, it was a glorious sight.
And a good reminder.

We all seem to feel even more alive when the sun is shining. What a kind way of looking at the world. Thanks puppy!

Happy weekend.
Shine on.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 107 :: blanking kindness

20 Apr

Writing the future.

I’m reading a new book – or, rather listening to one on Audible. It’s called The Three Laws of Performance.

You can listen to an audio sample here.

In it, a concept is shared called, “blanking the canvas.” And I like it. It’s all about needing to wipe the slate clean in order to create a new future. Or, possibly better said, in order to create a new future you need to wipe out the past – or at least come to terms with it, releasing yourself from it.

By doing this, you create space. Space to write a new future.

And that has me thinking about my promise of kindness. Maybe, just maybe, to create a future of kindness we have to come to terms with the unkindness of the past.

And maybe, by being honest about the past, forgiving it, settling it, moving on from it, we can all move into a future written on the pages of kindness.

Here’s to writing the future.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 106 :: timing and kindness

19 Apr

Enjoying time.

Kindness is teaching me much this year – already.
Including the respect of time, and timing, and divine timing.

It’s a hard lesson to learn, for me, one who pushes and pulls against the strands of chronological time. Always wanting more. Always pushing for more. Always feeling as though the hourglass needs more sand.

But, today, I was gently and firmly reminded that we have time. Lots and loads of time. Beyond our imagination and perception and calculations.

And I cannot think of a KINDER way to look at life. This life. In this time.

With great kindness, enjoy your time.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 105 :: apple is rotting my kindness

18 Apr

Complaints.

We are this far into the year and I’ve hit my first true kindness dilemma. Apple Support. I have been on two calls with two different people about my Apple ID and I cannot get any help or true support for that matter.

I am locked out. And the only thing that Apple Support people can tell me is to wait. It’s been over a week and I still don’t have my Apple ID password resolved. It affects ALL my Apple devices, including computer, phone, watch and iPad.

So what does one do when they made a promise to be KIND and are having a support dilemma to the degree of wanting to yell at the top of her lungs and scream into the phone at the very unsupportive support person?

Nothing.

Apparently waiting is all I can do.
Other than write this blog.
And complain to the people who can only say, “It’s in process” and “if it isn’t resolved in another week call us back again.”

All this makes me wonder ….where do kindness and customer support intersect when nobody can solve your problem?

I guess have to wait to find out.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 103 :: easter kindness

16 Apr

Sunshine.

He has risen! And when I say he, I mean the SUN.
It’s been a long winter.

Yet on this Easter Sunday, along with amazing food, family, and some outdoor fun, we had the grace and warmth of the Sun. The flowers were in full bloom too.

And, that may be the best kind of kindness.
Appreciation. Appreciating the everyday miracles around us.
Let the sun shine.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 102 :: birthday kindness

15 Apr

Pup.

Pup turned sixteen today. He’s the Number One dog around here – marked with the shape of a number one on his chest in a patch of white fur.

It’s more than a moniker for his highness or a mark on his chest. It is his essence. He is a sweet boy, as kind (and stubborn) as they come. Ironically his birthday is on Tax Day, April 15. He is the kindest part of this day, every year.

Today he had his most favorite of adventures – a car ride to the park, a sniff along the shore, and a walk down the boardwalk to meet and greet all sorts of people.

As part of our annual tradition, today was also The Pinning Ceremony – the day we pin the new number on his chest. A tradition since his 10th birthday. It’s just a paper cutout of a number taped to his chest long enough to snap a photo while we feed him treats.

Today, we pinned a six next to his one. Sweet Sixteen.
So sweet it is.


He loves it.
So do we.

He was lost and found. Left on the side of an Oregon highway in a box with a bunch of puppy sisters. Found by Justin. Loved by us both.

Happy Birthday, dear Pup. You teach us kindness every single day. And also, how to be stubborn and get what you want. The perfect blend if you ask me!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
