The . Anchor . and . the . Bird

I love when people drop little comments here because it's a great way of finding new blogs that I might not have otherwise run across. Such was the case when Carolynn from The Anchor and the Bird left a little trail of crumbs for me to follow this morning. And I have to say, what I found on her blog is the biggest - and perhaps loveliest - surprise that I've come across in quite some time.

Carolynn is nearly through her self-imposed 31 Days of Good Deeds and it's kind of incredible. She's done everything from paying for someone else's dinner - just because!! - to leaving lovely little notes all about the city.

What I love best about the things that she's done is that it shows that something very small and effortless can really brighten someone's day. Wouldn't it be wonderful if tons and tons of people could do this?

Hello to a much prettier little world!!

P.S. - Sneak over to The Anchor and the Bird to see more of Carolynn's good deeds!

I love this - and I'm pretty sure that spreading all of those good deeds around the city made her feel better too!

Please count this as YOUR good deed as I am moved by her acts and intend to share! I'm a teacher and I'm going to show my students her blog tomorrow and have them come up with ways to spread the kindness. THANK YOU!

Hot Damn, my cup runneth over! Thank you so much for the shout-out {I cried a little when I saw it} and all your kind words. This project has done so much for my soul and I love reading all the inspiring comments from strangers and new blog friends. 31 days just isn't enough and with each high five from the universe I become more and more convinced that I want to extend the project.

What a sweet post! Thank you for sharing! We often feel overwhelmed by the big things that we feel we can't impact and forget the little things that we are all capable of that start the ripples.
