What I REALLY Want for my 40th Birthday

Weeks before your birthday people always ask what you want. 

I never have an answer. 

I'm truly blessed and have way more than I could ever possibly need. 

Since this year is one of those decade change birthdays for me, 
I've been telling people that I am not having a birthday this year. 

But after reading the blog a sweet friend sent 
me a link to the other day I decided
 I DID want to celebrate my birthday this year and 
I immediately knew 
what I wanted for my birthday! 

But I need YOUR help to get it. 

Will you help me? 

My birthday wish is to complete one Random Act of Kindness for every year of my life so far (that's 40), as well as asking family, friends, Facebook friends, and fellow Twitter-ers to each perform one Random Act of Kindness and to let me know about it throughout the day via email or text message on my birthday- next Monday, March 29th.
 (And if you could take a picture of it? Like icing on the cake!)

If I could get 40 (or 80?) friends to do a Random Act of Kindness that day? 

It would be AMAZING. 

I honestly can not think of anything I'd like better 
as a gift than for other people to be blessed
and it truly would make my day so special if you'd join me. 

Getting texts and emails all day of the great things people are doing for others would be like getting little presents all day long. 

The fact that my sweetest friend Dory will be here with me 
to help me accomplish my 40 Random Acts of Kindness? 
Seriously- the GREATEST thing EVER!!!
(We are going to have SO much fun!!!)

So....will you join me? 


Pretty please?

Pretty please with a Sonic drink on top?


  1. You are amazing! What a fabulous idea! I'd love to be a part of it :)

  2. Yea and thank you sweet Jamee and Jen! So excited! 2 down, only 38 (or thinking positively 78) to go! :)

  3. Of course I will do that for you. I even put it on my calendar so I wouldn't forget ;)

    You are constantly amazing me with your kindness and willingness to help others.

    Love you!

  4. Oh what a fantastic idea! Count me in Shannon. The 25th is my Dad and my daughter in law's bday. I'm going to do something for them too!

    What a special way to celebrate. I agree we are so blessed. Today I am really stuggling with not having a pity party. Hubby has no work again today. Our checking account can't pay the bills and next month doesn't look good either. But I am not in danger of losing my home, I have food in my cupboards, and most importantly a God who listens and knows my needs. Thank you for the reminder.

  5. Your office buddies are in!!

  6. What a cool idea. I may have to steal it for my 30th coming up in just over a month.
