JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 204 :: kind of big

15 Aug

Truck.

This is a truck. One really BIG truck.

I had to rent a car today and the friendly staff at Enterprise offered me this big beauty. So, of course being one up for any adventure, I said, Yes.

Truthfully, it’s been a very long time since I drove a truck. And, it’s been a REALLY long time since I drove a truck this big. We have to go all the way back to high school and to a 16-year-old Jamie who just received the biggest ticket to freedom – her driver’s license.

My sister and I couldn’t agree on a car schedule so I decided I would just drive my dad’s old Ford truck (with a capital T) that sat out in front of the house. It was used for camping trips mostly, but I decided if I packed it with my girlfriends and basketball team it would be cool enough for school. We called it The. Big. Blue. Bomber.

I drove The BIg Blue Bomber everywhere. School. Drive-In. Basketball Practice. And everywhere else in between. Okay, it was Idaho, so it wasn’t that weird. But still…. in a world of cute little cars it was a bold choice.

Today, in another bold choice, I looked at the Ram 1500 and said yes. Not only because it was funny, and an adventure — but also a little bit because it made me remember that confident teenage girl who decided SHE could drive a truck to school – and everywhere else.

And I think it’s a “Kind” move to listen to that little teenage girl once in a while.
Even when she wants to drive an enormous truck.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 180 :: 4-letter word friday

21 Jul

Singing in the RAIN.

It’s POURING rain in Chicago. Sideways rain. Intense flash flood rain.


Of course, it happened at the exact moment we needed to get INTO our taxi to go to dinner… and then again exactly as we needed to hop back into a taxi to return home. It was all worth it of course – great food, great friends, great memories and moments.

Rain is good.
Rain is vital.
But just like kindness, if you smother with too much, too fast, it can cause a flash flood.

Now, get an umbrella.
Cause everyone’s going to get wet!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 172 :: intentional acts of kindness

13 Jul

Vets.

I just returned from the emergency after hours veterinary clinic. Not with either of my dogs, but with my dear friend’s cat.

As I sat at the clinic waiting to find out the kitties results (he ended up being fine by the way!) I thought about Intentional Acts of Kindness. And how easy it was for me to say yes to help a friend.

And that brings me to this.
Kindness is easy.
When it comes from the heart.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 97 :: kindness comes in pretty packages

10 Apr

You’ve Got Mail. 

Ah, kindness. You’re starting to kick in. Or kick my butt. So many lessons learned already in these short few months.

Some, are lessons I would rather not see in myself. A shade of unkindness, a shadow of mean, a sting of being sorry for words better off not said. But, as we know, when you are ready the teacher appears. And so, with each lesson, I remain open to the meaning. And growth.

And then, there are the surprises!

Today, I received a pretty little package in the mail, from a friend. It held a little red card and inside a little red envelope and inside of that a beautiful note and pretty little penny. And, for me, it was a huge surprise.

It was beyond kind. The KIND of KINDNESS that you don’t expect.


And that has me thinking… maybe making a promise of intentional kindness isn’t so much about what I give. Maybe it’s also about opening up the door to receive.

As the year moves forward we shall see. Until then, may kindness find you with beautiful little surprises (and lessons that don’t sting).

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 26 :: birthday

26 Jan

Kindness.

I am in awe. Mostly at the kindness that birthdays bring in out in everyone I know. I am so thankful and grateful for the text messages, facebook posts, calls, messages, and all the ways that I have been reached today. And touched.

It is the gift of being seen and remembered. Is there anything better?

It reminds me in this year of Intentional Acts of Kindness that gifts and kindness come in many forms (money, love, care, listening, seeing, honoring). Not all are seen or heard but all are felt, deeply, with the heart.

Here’s to another trip around the sun. Thank you for being here with me. I feel you. I see you. I hope you know how much you mean to me.
More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie
