Hello my friends! I’m a day late posting again. I have no idea where my brain is at, maybe on summer vacation? Anyways, last week was full of kindness for AMOK and celebrating Independence Day with family and friends during their time off.
Last Monday the kids and I put a bunch of quarters on treat machines outside of the grocery store. Tuesday we brought some Dum Dum suckers with us when we helped serve lunch to hungry kids in the park. They’re little allergen free balls of sugar! Wednesday we smoked meat and had a picnic for friends of ours that are moving to Japan. They’re a military family so moving is normal to them, but we’re very sad to say goodbye. Thursday I made dinner for ten women and children escaping their abusers in a shelter. Baked ziti casserole, garlic bread, salad, and brownies looked really yummy. Friday we brought the kids to their favorite park with huge tube slides. It’s over an hour away, but was well worth the trip. Saturday we held an ice cream social and game party for our neighbors. We managed to gather a ton of donations for the Heartland Animal Shelter and had an awesome time just hanging out! Then Sunday I left some quarters and accouterments at the local ‘fluff and fold’. Doing laundry stinks, but maybe this act of kindness made that chore a bit easier.
So, this is the last week of Random Acts’ Annual Melee of Kindness. Then it will be time to start figuring out what I should endure for E4K! Unfortunately, the neuropathy in my feet from chemo makes running a 5K dangerous and not within my reach. Slight road block, but I’ll figure it out. Maybe I’ll Zumba for a few hours? Hope you all are having a lovely summer, hugs!
