JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 344 ::christmas kindness

11 Dec
{receiving}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

Today I was on the other side of kindness….

I received an early Christmas gift. It was a bundle of yarn to crochet. I have not “crocheted” (is that a word?) since I was a little girl. My Mama Sling taught me how to hold the yarn and weave it together in a gentle way that eventually created a scarf.

My scarf was crooked with wobbly holes. But I loved it. I loved it so much I gave that scarf to my friend Kari for her birthday. We were maybe in second grade and I’m sure the “gift” looked just as wobbly as my little fingers as they mimicked my mothers weaving magic.

But it was the thought that counted the most. And that brings me to this:  Sometimes the best part of kindness is receiving.

Being open to gifts and the love that comes with it might just be one of the secrets of Christmas.

And now…. I crochet!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

{giving and receiving}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

Today I made an investment donation on KIVA.org. It was a wedding gift from our dear friends Sheryl and Webster. I had not yet experienced the land of Kiva until we received this beautiful gift that was given to us to give to others to help spur their dreams.

It took me months to finally decide on the “right fit” loan to give on Kiva. There were SO many stories, and SO many ideas, and SO many good works. And in the season of giving, Kiva has me thinking about giving and receiving and giving some more.

Maybe the best gifts are those that truly do keep on giving.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

{the best}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

Today I drove to Seattle, to see the best acupuncturist around. She came highly recommended, and even though there was time and a bit of distance and too much driving… I chose the best.

There is kindness is choosing the best. The best for you. The best for your goals. The best for your promises, your big ideas, your path and everything else that your dreams are made of…

Sometimes the best kind of kindness is as easy as getting clear on the best fit. For you.

Choose the best.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

{listen deeply}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

If there is one thing I have learned in this year of Kindness, it is to listen. Deeply. I’m not saying I’m good at it, or have a full grasp on the fine art of deep listening. But I have learned this:  listening deeply is the best remedy to most of life’s issues.

Listen to someone.
Deeply.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

{phone a friend}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

And tonight my act of kindness was phoning a friend. Really, what else is there in life that could be better than a kind voice.

The best part of friendship is reciprocity. Giving and giving back.
Is there a friend you want to call? Don’t wait!

Phone a friend.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 334 :: a longer, kinder life

30 Nov
{splash}

This one makes a splash. It’s the Splash Sisters. Just watch this video.

It made me cry. I’m not sure if it was the basketball player inside of me, or the girl who knows life shouldn’t end with retirement.

The youngest woman on the team is 80 years old.


I strongly believe that no one should just retire at a prescribed age and stop living, moving, playing. The human body is built to live to 150 years old, according to Dr. Andrew Weil.

Our bodies are meant to move.

Which is exactly what these ladies are all about.
Keep moving.
How kind. 

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 333 :: a kinder way

29 Nov
{oh world}

The news over this last year has left me dizzy. And now, it seems, there is, even more, news and change on the horizon. All the allegations and suspicions and irreparable damage done by humans to other humans.

It’s enough to make my heart hurt. And it makes me want to cry, “can’t we all just be kind!?”

Maybe kindness is the call we need to change the world.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 332 :: elf kindness

28 Nov
{creative}

The holidays bring elves… and today I found these random acts of kindness just for the Elf in your life! Compliments of Living Locurto.

I love this idea. This elf turned some M&M candies into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeers with a note asking kids to secretly leave them as gifts on someone’s doorstep.

Kindness can be so simple.
And fun.
Happy elfing!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 331 :: holiday random kindness

27 Nov
{research}

The Holidays are on! And I’m doing a little research on Random Acts of Christmas Kindness. Here’s one article: 40 Radom Acts of Kindness.

I like some of the ideas:

  • Put sticky notes with positive messages in public places.
  • Sing Christmas Carols, play board games, or just visit with senior citizens at a nursing home.
  • Tape a plastic bag of quarters to a washer or dryer at the laundromat.
  • Purchase some extra dog or cat food and drop it off at an animal shelter.
  • Leave a $5 taped to the entrance of a car wash or tape a gift certificate for a free car wash to a stranger’s car.

I am creating a Christmas Kindness Calendar of my own…

What would you add for Christmas kindness?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
