I wasn’t brave enough to wander through a parking lot, tucking flowers under the wiper blades on strangers’ windshields. I figured there was a pretty good chance someone would think I was vandalizing the cars or fixin’ to steal them and would call the cops.
So I opted to leave a bright, happy daisy on all 15 mailboxes on my street. I did not open any mailboxes, merely lashed the flower to the door handle with a rubber band, so hopefully I won’t be arrested for tampering with the mail. I don’t need a new home, new friends, or a new job! 🙂
In an attempt to overwrite all the negative feelings I have about April, I have made a pledge to complete 26 random acts of kindness this month. Reporting on these acts is the theme of my participation in this year’s April A to Z Challenge. If what you read here inspires you to commit your own RAoKs this month, please share what you’ve done in the comments. Together, we can rewrite April’s legacy!

Those daisies are beautiful! And what a beautiful idea – putting them on neighbor’s mailboxes. I really do love this idea of yours. I am going to have to tuck this idea away for next year’s A-Z Challenge. Would it be OK if we borrowed the idea?

I would LOVE for you to borrow this idea!! I’m so excited that my humble little blog might inspire more random acts of kindness in the future, so yes, yes, YES, borrow away! 😀
P.S. Thanks for following!
