"My Darling, Darling I love you madly!" That is what my sister said to me when I was very young and the nickname stuck. To this day all my relatives (grandparents, dad,mom even my brother-in-law!) calls me Darling :) My nieces and nephew talked about Darling at their kindergarden and when I went to visit not long ago, their teacher said: Oh, YOU are Darling, we thought it was a cocker spaniel :) hehe...
Today on my last day of blog hosting, I thought I would share a few ideas for Guerilla Love. What is that you ask? Well, let´s just say it is a very fun way of spreading love and goodness around you. I have followed Patience Salgado on her blog kindnessgirl.com for a while now and I love how she gives example after example of how kindness changes everything. Her latest mission was to suprise the garbage collectors with a thank you note. I have been known to do a little Guerilla love myself :) It is simple really: leave a note in a library book, put a heart on a mirror or chalk up a sidewalk.
Before Christmas I made these small envelopes and made them really pretty. Inside I tucked a little encouragment message for whomever would find it. I found some awesome free printables at a blog called Kind over Matter there are a couple of downloads that are cards you just cut out and you can use them in Guerilla loving! Go check them out!
Another place I have found lots of ideas is Color me Katie . For example she painted hearts on rocks and placed them in the cracks of a pavement "I made sure to fill some cracks in the sidewalk with the rocks for people who feel so low they just can't look up." How sweet is that?!!
There are so many small things that you can do to share the love with others this Valentine´s Day or anyother day for that matter! To get you started, here is a short list:
leave messages in library books or books at the bookstore
leave cookies or other treat for you postman/woman
leave new (or old ones you have read) magazines at waitingrooms
leave a note in someones pocket before they leave home
write a message on the bathroom mirror (we do that all the time!)
write a message on the street with chalk
I could go on forever! And don´t forget to include your children, it is such fun thing to do together!
I will leave you with this sweet video from Patience with a great project to do on Tuesday (Valentine´s Day!
Thank you all for a LOVEly week!
