‘Showing a Little Love’ Challenge. . .Day 12 & Valentine Features

I had a lot of fun complimenting people yesterday.  And guess what?  I even had two strangers give me a compliment.  It helped to make my day a little brighter.

Many of you left comments saying that you have done this.  Kuddos to you and keep those compliments coming!

Our new challenge is similar, but different. lol!  Gotta keep you guessing. 

Today’s Challenge:  smile and say ‘hi’ to every passer by.  I’m going to be out running errands today so I should encounter a lot of people.  Many times we are in such a hurry that we don’t even look up and see the faces of people we pass.  Today I will take time to notice.

Now for some Valentine features from recent Share Your Cup party links:

A Little Bit of Everything shared some sweet crocheted baskets she filled with kisses as table favors.

Debra from Common Ground showed us how she romanced her mantle.

Just back from my errands, and while I didn't say hi to everyone, I did pour the love on the bagger, who had the dreadful job of bagging all $230 in groceries. She was so sweet to help me by putting the "cold" items in plastic, non-cold in paper so when I got home, I only had to lift the plastic few (arthritis, so my hubby will bring in the rest when he gets home from work). People respond so beautifully when share the love, and I'm thankful for this lady today.

Hugs ~ Mary
