Hey y'all-- skipping by with big news. Hungry is a Mighty Fine Sauce ( is having a book 👶🏻! Can't wait to tell y'all more about it, but I'm under a tight deadline. This is just an FYI for why I can't play...

Nancy Thomas Pretty Please!!! Random act of kindness- Not choking the living daylights outta my husband right now! (Does this count)
Faye Stoeffler Bryant Pretty please?
Pam Rhoten Brewer Pretty please
Christina Swanson Griffin Pretty please?! Random act of kindness--teaching my 7th graders about performing random acts of kindness themselves!!!
Samantha Chesney Pretty please!! Random act of kindness. We own our own pool cleaning and repair company. So I was taking the skimmer basket out to dump the leaves but there was a dead rat (I don't do dead.... anything) rather than running around screaming. I kindly told my husband that it was our anniversary and asked him to grab the dead rat because I wasn't doing it 😳😜 Seriously, Clint was feeling sick so rather than stopping at a restaurant for lunch, I'm getting it Togo so he can be comfy at home while I nurse him back to health. Love you ShShellie Rushing Tomlinson
Bj Long Pretty please!
Brenda Kay Wilbanks Bahn-Moore Pretty please ❤ Random Act of Kindness Praying for you card to a lady I haven't met in hospice.
Glenda O'Neill Weeks Pretty please. Random act of kindness: helping a lady find her seat at a concert last night and staying with her til her husband found.
Roland Stephanie Cortes Pretty Please. Wow. I try to do random acts of kindness each day. Holding doors, returning someone else's shopping cart, saying (and meaning it) I love you and how can I help to friends in need. I have done all of these so far today. A standout for me though was a few days ago at Walmart. An elderly (90's?) gentleman was pushing his buggy to a car way down the aisle. He was taking baby steps. One car didn't see him and got mad and went around me, thinking I was blocking the aisle. She almost hit him! I moved my car over to the center of the aisle and blocked traffic so no one could hit him. Once he got to his car, literally 6 minutes later, I parked and walked over to him. He was struggling to lift the grocery bags. I asked him if he would mind if I loaded his groceries in his car for him. He said ok but he wanted them transferred to his reusable bags and packed a certain way. Another lady walked up and said she had been watching him and said she would like to help me help him. She told me that she has MS and most days can't get out of bed. She said today was a good day and she really wanted to help. We got his groceries placed in his car and he thanked us and drove away. I walked away with a huge smile and loving life and realizing how blessed I am. God is so good! Sorry this was so long!
Kay McGuffee-Lirette Pretty please 🙏
Lisa T Hodgson Pretty,pretty PLEASE❤

Opp Karen Guenard Not just for holidays- May we all aspire to do random acts of kindness everyday, wherever we live or go as a way of life..... Each act is like pearl added one by one to a string of pearls that never is ever ending. This starts at home, extended family,friends, working outward into the community....Not just for immediate family, friends, believers, fellowships......but beyond those borders... Ministry of the Gospel with out walls ... Act of kindness is just showing people U care as JESUS did and not just the words I love or a gift. It's about so much more- bout caring, Calling, visiting, checking on, listening, praying with people, listening to the broken hearted, giving hope/ encouragement in JESUS & HIS word... May the LORD open & expand our hearts about where we have overlooked & need to do more random acts of kindness. Many of Their faces are right before us. May HE have mercy on all of us for falling short...
