Button cred goes to the super talented Susan at Susan's Charming Trinkets
Welcome to the Summer 2011 Flying Lessons 1st Anniversary Giving Flight Blog Hop! We are all celebrating the companionship, comradery, and community that class has afforded us in several ways. Today I am giving thanks, giving back and giving flight.
I am so thankful today to our Heavenly Father for the amazing blessing He has given me in being physically and financially able to pursue this dream. It's a slow moving process, sometimes almost imperceptible, but there is movement. I am also thankful to all of you who read here, hang out on my Facebook page with me, follow on Twitter and Instagram and help to create this community. I'm grateful.

Part of our celebration is to talk about how we can give back some of the blessings we have realized as a result of participating in this class. One way that I do that is the BEtter KIND of MONDAY (BKM) project I've talked about a few times here. BKM is an effort to make Monday's a little brighter, little less stressful, little less...um...Monday. You can do anything to make a Monday better for yourself and those around you. It's just some small kindness to brighten a day. I'm not trying to blow my own horn here, but there may have been a couple bucks left under the gas handle at HEB, maybe a few coins in the coin return of Coke machine at work, some cards mailed out to unsuspecting folks...that KIND of thing (get it?). Let's do it! Let's make BKM a movement??!!
This Monday, do a little something. You don't have to tell me or anyone else what it was. But I would LOVE it if you could come over to my Facebook page and tell me if you BKM'd anyone. LOVE it. Make my day, m'kay?
Another part of our celebration is to Give Flight to someone else. We have created 8 amazing opportunities for others to enjoy the last Flying Lessons class that Kelly Rae Roberts is offering this September. (Cue Ginsu Knife commercial voice)~~~ AND THAT'S NOT ALL~~~ Kelly Rae has most generously agreed to MATCH our donations. At last count then, there are SIXTEEN opportunities to win a spot in this class, the last time it will ever be offered.
To enter, go here to the FlyTribe blog (which will be live after 12 midnight, Aug. 20, 2012).
Thanks again for stopping by and for participating in BKM. You have already done a couple of good deeds today.
May the good Lord bless you with opportunities to live your own dreams.
Please continue to celebrate with my friends by moving to the next blog on the list below.
