Yes it is!
Random Acts of Kindness… I witnessed an act of kindness last week, and I’m still thinking about it. My Hubby and I were walking in to the grocery store and there was a lady from Salvation Army ringing her bell for donations out in the cold. The man walking ahead of us not only put some money in the bucket, he proceeded to ask her if he could buy her a cup of coffee, from the Starbucks inside, to help keep her warm.

Some days you need a gentle reminder that life can and should be simple, and the joys in life are the little things… like flying saucers.
My son is what you call a “gamer”. He’s really good at it, and all his friends play. Last night was the release of Call of Duty Black Ops 2 and his super hero dad took him to Best Buy at 12:01 am to pick up the “deluxe” game package he ordered. The game came with extra goodies, including a flying saucer. (It has a sophisticated flying machine name, but at the moment it’s beyond me. I’m just the gamer’s Mom.)
After school today, we took the remote control flying thing outside to give it a try. And guess what?? It was fun! My son and I were laughing and flying, and occasionally ducking and running out of the way, but we had a blast. My whole day was spent being blah and grumpy (from tiredness, lack of sleep) and all it took was watching my son fly a saucer to make me smile. Simple. And joyful.
