Thanksgiving FaceBook project

I am sitting in my kitchen, watching the wonderful snow coming down, drinking a hot toddy, and thinking about how lucky I am..... I am blown away by how incredibly blessed I am and by how many amazing people I have in my life. I was going to start the "what I am thankful for"  November FB posts early... because I have so many people and things to be thankful for. But, then I thought, I don't want to just SAY I am thankful, I want to pass it on and SHOW that I am thankful and share the blessings in my life. So, what I am going to do is: I am writing down the names of everyone in my life who I am thankful for, all the people who have meant something to me, and who have shown me so much kindness. I am going to put all the names in a mason jar, then everyday( health permitting), I am going to draw a name and do something nice for that person: take them to lunch, send a card or a care package, whatever I feel they need. I will also do a random act of kindness in honor of the person who's name I drew. I will tell them what I did in their honor. 

It seems silly and small, but it is the least I can do to start to keep the love and kindness moving forward.
