Random acts of Kindness Project and Surprises

A smile. An encouraging word. A thoughtful gesture. Each day people interact with us, help, and make our day a bit brighter and full. This is especially true in the Writing Community
Take a second to think about writers you know, like the critique partner who works with you to improve your manuscript. The writing friend who listens, supports and keeps you strong when times are tough. The author who generously offers council, advice and inspiration when asked.
So many people take the time to make us feel special, don't they? They comment on our blogs, re-tweet our posts, chat with us on forums and wish us Happy Birthday on Facebook.

Kindness ROCKS!
To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!
I have chosen to Blitz a RAOK on the following Writers/Bloggers:

Pat Bean of Pat Bean's Blog.  This amazing lady and her canine companion travel all over the US and allows us to live vicariously though the awesome photos she takes. She has literally cheered an entire day for my by allowing me to pretend for a moment that I am in these places alongside her, but not in a stalkerish kind of way :)  I have decided someday to live in an RV as well!

Angie Bailey of Lariats and Lavender - This lady has a fabulous blog full of eclectic items. I loved "What I wore Wednesday.She stays on the pulse of today and makes is a blast. She is also an advocate for causes that make a difference. I admire her for speaking her mind!

Melinda McGuire's articles at Melinda McGuire Writes, She has a great sense of humor and provides awesome writing advice.  She also writes "with a Southern slant", which touches my down home about as southern as you can get soul!

Sally K Witt has a very entertaining and eclectic blog and is always entertaining. Her article on bathing suit shopping really touched home for me and it was hilarious to boot!

I also have a kindness gift basket for one of the lucky readers on this post. There are also a couple of smaller items in my bag of goodies here so, tell me the best random act of kindness you ever received!

Do you know someone special that you'd like to randomly acknowledge? Don't be shy--come join us and celebrate! Send them an email, give them a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. Kindness makes the world go round. :)
Becca and Angela have a special RAOK gift waiting for you as well, so hop on over to The Bookshelf Muse to pick it up.
Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness?  Let me know in the comments!
