Kindness Counts Challenge – Day 1
Day 1 of the September Kindness Counts Challenge was well a challenge! LOL… we had “murphy” visiting us and of course anything that could go wrong..did!
Starting off with no internet..GASP..I KNOW!!
Followed by..well let me paint you a story..
Picture hubster standing on a ladder with paint can in one hand and brush in another applying the first coat of paint to our kitchen cabinets. We are remodeling our kitchen with a sponsored post by Giani. This is an awesome product that you can use to remodel your kitchen without breaking the bank. Love their stuff! Can’t wait to get the project completed – but I digress
Hubster is on the step ladder and the counter tops/stove etc are covered in a plastic sheeting. Our juliana pig, Madeline comes running through the kitchen and grabs the end of the plastic sheeting and TAKES OFF! As you can imagine the disaster that resulted as hubster was snatched off the ladder and paint can gets dumped against him and runs all down the front of his clothing…did I mention the splattered paint everywhere? We managed to keep the majority of the mess contained to a small area and was able to get the spilled paint cleaned up with a good amount of elbow grease. Madeline spent the rest of the day in her bed… knowing she was in trouble!
But we were still able to find ways to show kindness or make someone else smile:
- Helped a fellow blogger with a layout problem they were struggling with on their site
- Bought coffee for the person in line behind me at Starbucks
Not either were grand actions, just something that could be done to make the moment a little better for someone else…
How about you? Did you complete your Day 1 Kindness Counts Challenge?
