  2. I’ve spread the love by trying to rep the girl who redesigned my blog for me everywhere I can think of. She’s a graphic design major in college and is so seriously talented but she’s struggling to be able to afford the startup money to create her business so I want to help spread the word as much as possible!

  8. I spread the love by telling my students individually how proud I was of them. I told one how proud I was of him for taking control of his learning and getting his grade from an F to a C. I told another student how I was proud of him for trying his best and getting a B in math. But it goes beyond grades, I was proud of my student’s loving relationship with his sisters too. I just love the daily accomplishments I see and try to remember to acknowledge them.

  41. I spread the love this week by helping a friend on a budget create centerpieces for her wedding next week.

  42. Even though Fathers Day is next month, I decided that is too long to wait to show my husband how much we appreciate all he does. Because I am expecting our 3rd child, he has been getting up with the first 2 every morning, letting me get a little extra sleep. That is why we made Daddy Appreciation Day today. We have cards, a balloon, a special dinner, and extra hugs and kisses – that’s how we spread the love!

    My husband works around the clock as a network admin for several different companies. I’m normally the one that gets to go on class trips with our daughter, but I told him to call in today…so that he could spend one day with his little buddy. I know that might not sound like spreading the love…but to Hannah and Herrick, it was a perfect day. They drove through a safari park, and Hannah never once took him up on his offer to go play with her buddies. Instead, she stuck by his side and bragged that she got to spend all day with her Daddy. Perfection. <3

  113. I spread the love to myself this week by sticking to my training plans and succeeding at my runs and workouts. Then I boosted my own ego by building confidence that wasn’t there before. Self-love is important.

    I have been wanting the new iPad…badly. My husband made a deal with me……find a creative way to come up with the money without using household, vacation, retirement or any other already allocated funds from our budget, and you can get the iPad. So I check into selling my old-new iPad (that I got in November) back to Apple…they offered $250. I was still short. I don’t play games of chance (hardly ever) but I was invited to attend a local charity bingo with a friend. I won $900. YAY me! I now had enough money for the new iPad. Although I was happy about winning ore than I needed, I felt selfish…for wanting more than I needed. I then remembered seeing a Facebook status update from a friend…a friend of hers (Isabella) was trying to win an iPad for her non-verbal 4 year old daughter( Neveah) who was born with DiGeorge syndrome and is autistic. Neveah’s parents wanted to use a program called Proloquo2Go so that Neveah could have language, a way to communicate with her family. I knew in my heart that my old-new iPad was meant for that little girl. So I found out what Neveah’s address was, packed up my old-new ipad, the case, and accessories and mailed them to her. In return I received a video of Neveah asking for the the first time, using her name app, to go for a ride in the car. Not only does Neveah have language, but I have made a new little friend who I love dearly.
