No Kidding

December 21, 2011 by

Believe it or not, I forgot it was almost Christmas. It wasn’t until I stepped inside (you guessed it) Fred Meyer that it all came rushing back to me. Don’t get me wrong: I have nothing against Christmas or those who celebrate it. Nothing at all. I know it seems bizarre to my Christian friends […]

Calling All Angels

December 18, 2011 by

Have you seen the stories about the “layaway angels“? People (in substantial numbers) are filing into KMarts all around the country and asking to pay off layaway accounts, usually for kids’ items. A friend of mine posted this on Facebook yesterday: The line at the layaway counter at the Tualatin Kmart had more than one […]

A year ago, when I started giving away hundred dollar bills to strangers, I imagined that some surprising and wonderful things would happen. I could never have imagined what would happen with Billy Brown. I never met Billy, but since Monday I feel like she’s been with me. Monday was the day I met Kate, who […]

Some days, it feels like that C-note is going to burn a hole right through my pocket before I find someone I’m drawn to give it to. Today wasn’t one of those days. It all started when I realized we were out of butter. While this is certainly not the end of the world, it came […]

I like to help out from time to time; I can sew a pretty straight line with the sewing machine and I have a decent eye for pattern and color […]

I stumbled across this article today. “Secret Santas” in Charlotte, NC are giving away $10,000 (of their own money) in $100 bills. They’ve been doing it for the past few years around the holidays. Be sure to look at the full slideshow of pictures. The comments people have made are interesting, too.

Day 20 of my Month of Hundreds. Counting down now. I’m not liking that; I really don’t want this month to end. Over the last 20 days I’ve definitely refined my process and gotten more efficient in selecting the day’s recipient once I decide to do the deed. It’s a little hard to describe what […]

Angels Unaware

October 13, 2010 by

It was a day for miracles today. 33 men, trapped 2000 feet underground for 70 days, rescued without a hitch! I kept checking in on the news, and heard some of the family members on the radio driving back from my morning clinic. At the end of the work day, I was heading to my […]
