My take on 30 for 30

I wrote in September about my impending big 3-0. It's even closer now! Less than 2 months. Mz Beyonce and Mr. Z had their baby this weekend, little Blue Ivy Z. :)

I've started to think about how I want to celebrate. Every year I want to do something for my birthday, then I usually don't. But I've had some inspiration. Lest it begin to become a habit, I again thank Pinterest.

A woman celebrated her 38th birthday by completing 38 acts of random kindness. I thought that seemed like a great idea, so I really should start gathering things I want to do. I can't decide if I want to do them all in one day or maybe for the weekend leading up to my birthday. I also want to involve my friends.

SO if you have any good ideas for acts of kindness or want to participate with me in completing them, let me know! I need your ideas!

Hmm... some random some planned I suppose.
Pay for someone's Starbucks/dinner/gas/groceries (whatever you can afford) sometime

Babysit for young parents for FREEEEE!

Make dinner for a sick person/shut-in/new parent

Visit someone in the hospital
Bring a treat to the teacher's lounge at a school with a note of appreciation

Ask a church office if they know of any specific items anyone needs and go buy whatever it is they need.

My favorite act of kindness...
When I'm at Starbucks I'll buy the person behind me's drink. It's a great way to start off someone's day.

Ann- this is a great idea. When I turned 30 I wanted to go on a trip. Your idea is much more rewarding.
