Ten Thousand


Hubby said I was supposed to walk ten thousand steps a day. He even showed me the website link which proved it.

Then he went and bought a cheap pedometer… which didn’t record his steps much.

So I decided to download one on my smartphone.

Then I set it to work each day.

Most times, I don’t even achieve half of the required number. Sigh.

Then recently, I did it.

This is BEFORE the end of a long day of a conference.

Affirming Gifts



Have you heard of secret angels? It’s an affirming and fun game where you support and encourage certain people anonymously. Later the secret is revealed =)

We decided to draw lots to see who we would be secret angels to in the office. Just for a few weeks. It had been a very hectic time so we decided that we could encourage and cheer one another on.

First things first, we decided to discover each other’s love language first – what made us feel cared for and loved. Then could we best “care for” the person assigned. ┬áTo make it harder for guessing since we are a small office, we decided that we would have two angels each! Good fun!

My “angels” have been working hard. An apple one day, a card the next. Feeling greatly affirmed!


Some rather creative ways coming up – even the sending of group messages so you cant guess!

As for me, I am working hard at affirming my “mortal” as well! But I can’t tell here what ways I am using in case someone reads this…. All will be revealed in a few days time…..
