When trying to come up with a catchy name for this monthly post series on random acts of kindness, my husband suggested “passing the peace”. At first, I literally LOLed. If you aren’t a church goer you might get the wrong impression! But then the name grew on me. Each month (Second Tuesday) I will post a suggestion on a Free (or inexpensive) way to pass a little peace along to a friend, neighbor or stranger. And as the Sunday morning interaction goes, “Peace be with you”…”And also with you!”
Remember those Manager Special flowers I got on the cheap? Next time you see a bouquet of marked down flowers, buy them- but not for yourself. Use an old pickle or jelly jar as a vase and take them to your local Hospital or Senior Citizens home. Tell the receptionist to share them with, “someone who needs some extra love”. The nurses/staff will know who needs them the most!
Watch my Periscope on Budget Bouquets for another way to give these discounted beauties!
