Happy Day Project: Day Two and Day Three

A little Happy Day catch up, if you will.

Send a handwritten note.

Not a text.

Not an email.

Not a FB message.

Julie and Jeannett have even organized cute little printables to go with each challenge.

I especially loved yesterday's from Hope Ink.

Unfortunately, our lame printer is in need of a little Happy Day Project of it's own.

Like Monday: Find $300 on the floor.

Tuesday: Buy a new one.

So until that happens, cute little printables are sadly lacking at the Johnson residence.

But back to the letter.

Sit down.

Collect your crazy thoughts.

And write.

Or kneel, hunched over on the dining room table.

Whichever you prefer.

Yesterday, anticipating today's challenge, I kept my eyes open.

There are not a ton of homeless people in our city.

But we'll see a few.  Here and there.

I didn't see one single homeless person yesterday.

Or today.

In my travels up and down the Peninsula.

It's gotten really cold here lately and I wonder if that's why.

This Happy Day Project?

It's a family affair.

In addition to pastoring Hope,

Dave manages a homeless shelter in downtown Oakland.

I asked if he wouldn't mind helping.

His response?

"Shoot, girl.  My life IS a Happy Day Project."


Tomorrow we get to give a book to a friend.

It's not too late to join in.

Blog or no blog.

It really is fun.

happy day
