Today is my missing adult son Ben‘s 35th birthday. As mentioned in 5.20, you’re invited to join me in kicking off a year of SAoKs (Small Acts of Kindness) called Buttons for Benjamin. The challenge starts today and runs for three weeks. The link is here. It’s hosted on KindSpring.org. If you join, you receive one email a day and zero spam.
Every Tuesday beginning February 28th, I’ll post a special Gem called “Full of Grace” with a photo and a blurb about each of the SAoks the week before. If the small act is a face-to-face meeting with someone new, I’ll hand out a button to get the word out about Ben.
Even if you don’t join, please send good thoughts and picture him home again, safe at last.
♡Thank you. ♡
