“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.” – Wayne Dyer

“Our deeds determine us as much as we determine our deeds.” – George Elliot

I’ve been bitching and moaning about my daughter’s school district (and rightfully so) and people on Facebook have been awesome about sharing their own fights and struggles and just giving cyber chocolate and hugs, and I think it’s time for a giveaway – the first of several in the coming weeks.

I truly believe in karma – reaping what you sow – and sometimes it’s a slow process, but I truly believe people get what they deserve – good, bad or indifferent.  Sometimes, all it takes is a reminder of how many good people are out there, willing to do a good deed or give a kind word or lend an ear or a shoulder.

And you know, sometimes when I write posts like this, I know there are people who think it’s all Pollyanna (totally did not know there were two l’s in that word, btw) and crap – here’s my thing – I think too many people mistake kindness for weakness.  But hey, that’s their problem – and I think we need a lot more kindness out there.

So, for today’s giveaway  prize – it’s a $50 Amazon Gift Card!  All you have to do to be eligible to win is to tell me, in the comments, the last time someone did something that made you smile or gave you comfort…you don’t have to give a whole story or private details if you don’t want to…just the bare bones is fine.  Share the Karma!

This giveaway is open until this Wednesday at noon EST  – I’ll draw the winner and announce on Wednesday afternoon / evenining – all depends on when baby boy allows me computer time.
