Random Acts of Kindness - Week 4


This is the last week of Betsy's Random Acts of Kindness Adventure 2015.  An unintended consequence of doing RAKs for others is the blessings I have enjoyed in doing them.


And, I can see that this little act of making cards to leave in unexpected places could become a regular thing around here... That crazy old lady passing out cards in parking lots or mailboxes. LOL!
 

Betsy, thank you for bringing acts of kindness to the front of my focus these past four weeks.  There is a sign in my kitchen that reads:  Because Nice Matters.  I believe with all my heart it does.


As The Boys would say, we can be bucket fillers or bucket dippers.  The choice is ours.  Every. single. day.

May you fill lots of buckets today...

Tanna, your card is beautiful and so full of thoughtfulness. I know it will brighten someone's day to get it. I really like this idea as well as Betsy's of putting cards on someone's car. It's random, it's kind and I love the anonymity of it. Have a great day!

Betsy Brock said...

I do love that idea....you get to have the enjoyment of painting and creating and then a second wave of blessing in leaving these beautiful kindnesses for others to have. Some day I do believe it will be revealed who you touched and why they needed it that day.

Bucket fillers....I do love that. It's not about getting, but giving. I've always said that stingy people always seem to be in need. ha.

Beautiful idea and beautiful sentiment - you will change the day of those who come upon them.

Tanna your watercolors are so stunning. I'm sure those lucky people who have received one, take it home and frame it.

That is truly giving of YOURSELF

Love you and love your watercolors.

Tanna, you are so talented. I love your cards, and the scripture message today is one I needed to hear!!! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to celebrate RAK with you and thrilled that we have become blog buddies. Have a great weekend!

Your RAK adventure has been at the forefront of my mind since I read about it here. I followed your link and then went and read all the posts and stories of the other participants one evening. I've been participating on my own (haven't blogged about it), and I really enjoy it too. My hubby has happily participated with me on a couple of occasions. Your painted and handwritten cards are beautiful. I know they are well-received and make people smile.

The thoughtfulness in giving that card to someone is enhanced by the fact that you made it. And it's beautiful!

Beautiful, Tanna. Your watercolors are so pretty. I definitely want to be a bucket filler but am around folks at work who keep dipping into my bucket. Ha! Joy comes in June ... that's what I keep telling my self. Best wishes, Tammy

You are such a dear, dear, person Tanna. And talented too! I would buy that card and have it framed. Love the bucket dipper quote from the boys - so inspiring!

Delightful! Such a beautiful card.

Catherine said...

It is true dear Tanna that one kind word or sincere smile brings hope to your heart. The little conversation or time that someone gives to simply listen is all it takes to help someones day.
Blessings dear, xoxo Catherine
