Day 134: Brought Carnations to a Nursing Home
Day 22 (wow that seems so long ago), my mom requested that in lieu of a birthday present, I use the money I would have used for a gift on a future random act to help out at a nursing home. With it being Mother's Day, I figure this is as good a day as any to follow through on this request. My wife and daughter are in California, and my sister is flying in from Florida next week, so technically we are celebrating Mother's Day next Sunday. However, I couldn't let the day go by without doing something to honor the mothers out there. So today, for my random act of kindness, my mom and I are going to go to a nursing home near her house and pass out carnations to all of the women there. For those that don't have a child or grandchild, we have no problem with being their de facto relatives for the afternoon. I want to also take this opportunity to thank all of the mothers and grandmothers out there for everything that you do. Raising a child is the toughest job on the planet and it is important that you are recognized on days like today. So Happy Mother's Day to all!
