Dear Leah,

Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day and hopefully a really good LOVEKINDNESS event.

Talk about going above and beyond! I’d ordered some tea from my favourite tea shop, Steam Tea House ( and after a few days it had not shown up. Very unusual for the Steam Dream Team. So I pinged them just to ask if there had been some mix up with my order. Not only did the owner reach out to explain the situation to me by phone and email, she also showed up at my door on a Saturday morning to hand deliver my order. Amazing! These folks are wonderful. #KindnessIsGoodForBusiness

A very sweet customer brought me a homegrown hot pepper! She dropped it off with a little note while I was at work and even offered parsley and brussel sprouts from her garden. It was so kind that she thought of me and made me feel special! (And spicy!)

‘Miss I got it just for you’ handed to me by a child with a beaming smile when I opened the gate to welcome the children into class. Certainly brought a smile to my face and made me feel like I am having an impact. #randomactsofkindness

Wonderful #randomactsofkindness outside Stringer House, LS10 2QW today, a lampost full of crochet worry worms 🙂 how lovely

There is a new mural in Okotoks, Alberta celebrating kindness in their community. Read the full story here:

Erica Spencer, one of the young artists working on the mural, had a good quote for them to base their work on: “Given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”

I paint rocks and hide them around town to spread kindness and joy!

Our 16 year old son keeps ducks and bantams. Yesterday we visited a local food bank for him to deliver 30 eggs. It was the first of what I am certain will be many visits. I’m incredibly proud of him. x

I have been doing 40 days of Kindness for Lent. I am on Day 33. I have done a variety of acts over the last 32 days.

Every year for St. Patricks Day, i make soda bread to gift to friends and coworkers. I always make extra to gift to random people. I was making some loaves when i got a delivery. The delivery man was very nice and helpful, so i gave him a loaf and a generous tip. He said if he could, he would hug me because that made his day.
