Sat down with a young teenage girl and used my education to have a quiet talk about getting to the chemist and purchasing the day efter pill.. She was terrified of telling her mother, she and her boyfriend my son used a condom that broke..

No point yelling at them or trying to tell them bad move- they are both 18 years old and adults plus the other young people are still visiting so why cause a huge scene? Both appreciated I didn't loss my temper, I have been young once and wish my sister came to me instead of being a mom at 16 years of age..

I want my teenagers to come to me with their problems, no matter how bad they are I believe together we can avoid grief of worse happening keeping the doors of communication open wide..

I told the receptionist in my dentist's office that she had ink on her face. She said others had looked at her funny but no one said anything. Made me glad I told her.

High winds knocked down tree limbs. I stopped with a couple other drivers and we were able to move a large limb to the side of the road --- out of the way. A good warm up as I was heading to Zumba.

I checked into this thread for ideas--and found some! Liked leaving coupons and penny dropping! Will check back later...

Seeing this early in the day will inspire me to look for random acts of kindness I can do throughout the day ... thus far, I got up early enough to take the dog for a walk before I head out on a road trip.

My daughter was running late this morning so I set out the items she uses in putting together her lunch. OK --- I set out the healthy items. Will be interesting to see if she missed the chips (I set out pretzels).

Yesterday, while at the grocery store, I had some extra coupons. SO, I placed them on the shelves next to the products they are good for. I figured someone will be really happy because they can save a little money.

Volunteered to have the 'taco bar' pot luck at our house ahead of the junior prom. What was I thinking? emoticon emoticon

My daughter mentioned she was cold when she woke up. So I made Cream of Wheat for breakfast to help warm her up.

Dawn,

That is really interesting. For the past 3 1/2 years when I run whenever I see a coin during my run I pick it up and add it to my coin collection. To date I have over $82. At the end of the year I take the total earned to date and donate it to a charity...who knew???

THANKS FOR SHARING! I will never look at picking up a penny the same way! emoticon

In a book I was reading the other night one of the characters confesses to "penny dropping". She would take the pennies received as change and walk around the parking lot a bit dropping them for others to later find joy.

I gave it a try and got in a bit of exercise and hopefully brought a smile (and maybe a bit of luck) to a few "finders". emoticon
