Happy 30th to ME!

For my birthday, go do something nice for someone. Pay for the folks behind you in the drive thru. Pick up some litter. Make a kid giggle instead of scream in the Target check-out line. Or my personal favorite, take stickers and a $5 Starbucks card to the market...find a mom with an unruly toddler, give the toddler some stickers and the mom the giftcard. Smile and tell her "My friend Rachael wants you to treat yourself today, you're worth it!"

"Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."

(How perfect is it that this is my "verse of the day" today =)

Report back to me by leaving a comment here on the blog. Let's see how many we can get today, okay?

And thanks for all the birthday wishes, I may not have finished my 30-by-30 list (more on that later) but I had a good time trying and took some fun diversions along the way!


  1. I bought a Sheetz giftcard for a friend in need to use for food and gas.
    - Mom

  2. I helped Hubby out by cleaning up a mess in the front yard in the rain. It was gross. The yard is generally his responsibility, but he'll appreciate this as he's been gazing out the window for a few days just hoping the mess would magically be taken care of...

    Note to dog people, clean up after your dog!

  3. You have an amazing Mom, Rachael. For your birthday I was 'looking around' for someone to bless, but found a special person 'right in front of me'. Was able to help her out financially and also brighten her day with a spring gift. Thank you for sharing your special day with others. Kathie

    1. Awesome Kathie! I love that my mom has friends like you!
