I’m a wife, mom, sister, cousin, aunt, full time employee, church member, occasional student, Non-Profit owner and a whole host of other things. Much like you are, I’d say, I’m pretty busy.
Sometimes, I find myself saying “will someone PAAAALEEEEEEEESE order me up another day!!” and I tend to get all kinds of whiny about it.
Well, thanks to leap year, I GET just that! And I have to tell you, I’m pretty excited about my adventure! I am NOT going to waste this extra day that I’m given and I hope that you’ll JOYn me in making the most of our extra 24 hours!
At the very least, I’m going to make a difference an hour.
Here is what I’m planning on accomplishing with my extra DAY!
- Calling my mom and telling her how awesome she is
- Sending pizza to my husband for lunch!
- Letting my children know how special they are
- Using this coupon to purchase someone’s meal
- Making a contribution to Spreading Joy’s Basketball Tournament Event

- Reminding everyone to use their extra day to make a difference for others
- Mail a thinking of you card to someone that I’ve lost touch with
- Passing out an entire package of Reese’s cups (ok…maybe minus one…maybe)
- Comment on a blog and share on social media sites
- Dedicating all of my tweets to others for the entire day. Shouting out THEIR websites
