Progress report on 100 Acts of Spirit

It is only Tuesday of my big week for Random Acts of Christmas Spirit and I am already having the time of my life! I made these little cards and taped candy on the back of them. Now everywhere I go all over town to run errands I am leaving them in places for people to find! My 15 year old son went with me the first day and said he wished he could have parents that were normal. I say it is not good to be normal! We need more people willing to stick their necks out and make this world a better place. I don't want to live in a world where everyone is normal. I can watch CNN if I want that- too depressing! The really cool part of this is, by the time we got to the last errand-groceries my son was picking people to give them to! It really is contagious!

I have been doing other things too- leaving the bird seed in parking lots, catfood for ferrel cats, paid on a lay away, given to charities around town, and taken goodies to folks! I have been having a blast! You think I am doing good for others, and I am but the real gift is to me because it feels so great!

I'm still collecting and acting on ideas so keep them coming. I have all week. This afternoon I am taking some catnip to the adoption kitties! Hope you are enjoying your holiday season as much as I am!


  1. Such a wonderful thing to do, Pat! My kids never had a normal mother, and thought they wanted one, but they both have kids now and are not normal either, and they love being outside the norm! Normal is BORING!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. I agree! I'm glad to know that they turned out knowing what is better. My son gave a $20.00 tip to our waitress today and made me really proud. It's rubbing off. It just takes time! Thanks for your comment!

  3. Hi Pat I am new to your blog and your pottery is just beautiful! I am taking a life book course and need to take this journey. I love your blog and the purposes you have disclosed......you are a wonderful person and it is nice to meet you.
