Take the time to reach out to someone today -- just enjoy being present and appreciate the connection.

Holding my son on my back, I said, "Mom, who is on my back?"

My son quickly replied, "Don't tell him mommy. It's a surprise!"

Want to make a difference? Have a neighborhood party at a local restaurant to support their business. 

We're doing this Aug 29! I've already called the restaurant to let them know we're planning a big gathering for a dinner at their place. The owner nearly started crying with gratitude. 

They are good people who serve amazing Chinese food. In fact, it easily competes with our favorite Chinese restaurants that we used to go to when we lived in Shanghai.

Please consider doing something with a group of your friends to support a local business. Some call it a flash mob, which can be good, but I think a little warning and preparation time is better for most businesses. Plus, they know that you care about them enough to do something as well.

We did - for the Bearded Guy's half-birthday party, we had the buffet at the restaurant on the terrace and then at home supplied dessert from the local ice cream maker (who is not open on Sundays). And since then, both businesses have thanked us over and over for the support and advertising.

It's helpful to the community, it made feeding 25 people a lot easier for me and it was NOT all that expensive.

Two years ago, our best man had his birthday party at a local pub. Bought the place for the evening, basically. Their business picked up quite a bit after that.

Real recognition isn't a feigned gimmick. It is heartfelt appreciation for a job well done -- an expression of gratitude.

It is easy to criticize someone else and then sit on the sidelines without a plan or solution.
