Today is February 29th, Leap Day. One day every four years we get an extra day in the year! How exciting and what a gift a single day can be. What are you going to do this Leap Day? I have (so far): taken our kitty to the Humane Society be spade, get her rabies shot and a microchip, watered my garden, got a massage, did some yard work, harvested some oregano, blogged and found out all of my chakras are closed (bummer!) and it's not even noon. This Lent I decided that instead of giving something up I would try to do a good deed a day. It doesn't have to be something big, but just a random act of kindness. Yesterday I brought my bank teller a Pixie Stick (I had heard her say she loved them) and brought my daughter, who is sick, some chicken noodle soup. Doing nice things for other people makes me feel good so this Lenten promise is a win-win. It also focuses my attention on trying to find what nice thing I can do each day, so I am looking for a positive, instead of dwelling on a deprivation. So far, on this Leap Day, I have not done my good deed but that is the fun of it. Happy Leap Day to all!
