After having a week to digest and process all that I learned at Blog Sugar,
the underlying theme for the evening was the truth that
your blog is not all about YOU.
It might be about your life, but it isn't all about you.
This has proven true more times than I can count.
Honestly, I find myself rather boring and exhausting.
But when I use this little web address for more than my daily nonsense, beautiful things happen.
With that in mind, I decided to start a little monthly challenge.
A bit of doing something good for someone else.
Using your heart, your hands and your passion to share sunshine and love.
This month's challenge involves one of my favorite things.
Once this month, (or more for you honor students) bring someone a meal. Someone who would never expect it, yet really needs it.
It is so easy to rally together and feed families after babies are born, loved ones are in the hospital, or when a relative passes away.
But how about the family that is struggling financially?
The single momma who is working way to hard?
The friend who is trudging a difficult season and could use a little bit of extra care?
With a little extra planning, it really isn't difficult at all.
Just make extra of what you are making your family.
Need some ideas of what to make?
Here are some of my favorites:
Ordering pizza (great option to bless someone who doesn't live close by. Papa John's has frequent specials, is delicious, and nationwide.)
While you are at it, throw in a yummy dessert like toffee crack, lazy cookies or cobbler. Make you sweet gift even sweeter.
So friends, are you in or are you in?
Think about who you can feed. Think of who needs a little extra love.
Then do it. Cook, bake, order take out. Share. Get the little ones involved.
Let me know how it goes.
I'm really excited!
