180 Days of Good Deeds: Day 1

Day 1  May 24th

I don’t think I did anything spectacular today.  I stuck an Instant Happy Note (purchased at http://preview.tinyurl.com/leoazmz) on one of the executive’s monitor and one on an architect’s monitor.  The Architect is having some challenges professionally and personally.  Plus I was a bitch to him yesterday.   I feel horrible about how I treated him! (Yes, I did apologize)

In addition,  I took in 15 plants to share with others.  I overplanted tomato plants for the garden so I took them into the office.  It didn’t make sense to just throw them away!  They were claimed by 9:00!

Albeit small, I think the above were good deeds for day 1 of my journey.  There were good deeds, right?  Hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day and this is a journey; no short cuts here!

Reflection on my journey to a better me:

As I am writing this, I am thinking of our cousin who is battling stage 4 ovarian cancer.  She is the sweetest most caring and courageous person I know.  I am sure she could give Mother Theresa a run for her money!  I wonder, as everyone does who has a friend or family member stricken with this dreadful disease, why her?  Why not the person I hate the most at work?   Why not the inconsiderate neighbor who has dogs that bark constantly?  Why not the person in jail who has preyed upon young children?  The only thing that brings resolve to me is knowing my cousin is not a complainer.  She is dealing with it.    I also know she will fight and never give up.  But if and when God decides he needs her help, he is going to have a very special place for her.

This horrible station might also be God teaching me a lesson.  Every time I am selfish, uncaring, and a horrible person, I think of my cousin.   I immediately and humbly put myself in check.

What was your good deed for the day?
