I am having a really nice birthday today!

I have never been one to care much about my own birthday, but today my friends and family made me feel really special. I got texts from everyone. I was given a couple Amazon gift cards, my sister sent cookies to my work! I got to hand them out like a little kid at school! And tonight we are going out to mini golf!

So if you normally don't care like me, just remember that you might someone else's day by celebrating them. A little present goes a long way.

“Impersonal” Girl Scout cookie purchase, ended up being more personable than any we had before.

So my wife and I buy Girl Scout cookies every year for our friends and family. My wife was a Girl Scout growing up and it means a lot to her. It’s usually her nieces or second cousins, but they are all in college now. So the last few years we have been buying them from the girls who stop by our house.

This year was different. Down the road from us, one of our neighbors had an idea of putting an ad for their cookie sales on a billboard outside their house along the sidewalk with a QR code to purchase. We bought some boxes and walked on. We thought it was smart on the girls and/or parents part. Later on we told our families and they said we were rewarding this scout’s laziness and how impersonal she was being.

Fast forward three weeks later. The cookies arrived in the mail and a few days later we get a personal letter from the girl thanking us for buying the cookies. The hand writing was definitely that of a child, so it wasn’t her parents. Even so, it was detailed and wasn’t a simple thank you. My wife put it on the fridge and it really made her day.

I think it’s cool that some kids are taking advantage of technology. It’s both efficient and effective. The personal thank you was a nice touch and made it even more personal than the usual thank you that you get in person. It certainly takes more effort to address an envelope, write an elaborate thank you letter, and mail it than saying thank you. Never judge a book by its cover.
