My Birthday Wishes

Today is my birthday. I'm not announcing it to the world so that everyone will send me well wishes or gifts. Actually, I'm announcing it because I've decided that instead of presents I want something else for my birthday.

And you can help me with it.

I want everyone to perform random acts of kindness
today – for my birthday. It can be weeding part of your neighbor's flower beds. It can be sending a card to someone you've been thinking of. It can be smiling at the ornery clerk. It can be writing a note to your children and sticking it in their lunchbox. It can be any act of kindness given to someone else.

The next thing I want you to do is leave a comment telling me what it is you've done—not to boast about all of the kindness you showed today, but because my love language is words, I want to hear about what you've done. It will make my birthday the best I've ever had.

So . . . what are you waiting for? Go show someone how kind you are!

And don't forget to come back and share it with me.


  1. HAPPY B-DAY Shari! Whoo hoo! I'm totally thinking of kind acts to do today! What a great way to start the week! =) It was great to see you this weekend!

  2. First of all, Happy Birthday!! It's my birthday too! :-)

    And, just last week, my 7 y.o. son and I talked about starting to do daily random acts of kindness (I added it to his chore chart even though I don't want it to be a chore.)

    Love your challenge and your birthday wish! I'll have to stop by again and check out the rest of your blog!

    Birthday blessings,

  3. Happy birthday, Shari!! It was so good to see you this past weekend. And what a lovely birthday wish.

    May all your dreams come true this year!!

  4. Happy Birthday Shari! What a great idea; I will definitely take part in this. One thing I know I'm going to be doing is cleaning my parent's old house for hours this afternoon, so I suppose that counts. I also need to drop something off for my secret sister, so that would too, right? Maybe I can think of even more to do...

  5. What a great idea! Happy birthday!

  6. If only more people would do this. You're an inspiration.

  7. What a beautiful idea! I'm reading this near the end of this, your birthday, but I will go forth tomorrow and return and report!

    Happy Birthday! ♥

  8. Happy Birthday, Shari!

    My random act was to get a small gift for my niece who was feeling sick. =] Happy Birthday!

  9. Happy Birthday!! My kind act of service was sending my friends a "hug" and love via text. I hope you enjoyed it! :)

  10. Happy Birthday! My act was to give some extra time to my friends.
