One last thing...

This project was not an original idea by me -- many others out there are doing similar things, which inspired me to keep going. I subscribed to blogs and followed pages on Facebook. I got a t-shirt and signed a pledge over at Choose To Be Nice. In fact, if you go looking, there are whole organizations devoted to random acts of kindness, and many others devoted to volunteering and charity.

I relied on a lot of these, along with suggestions from folks following along. It kept me going when ideas and motivation were not always at full strength. The encouragement comes from a lot of sources.

And sometimes it comes from somewhere closer to home. My 10-year-old son and I were in a fairly heated argument one day when my 5-year-old son went into the other room, got a piece of paper and a marker, and made this sign:

It's now framed and hanging in our living room.
