Good Deed Basket


Good Deed


Two weeks ago we started a new reward system in our house.  The concept is simple but extremely effective.

  1. Do something good. Do something helpful.
  2. The Easter Bunny drops off a reward egg
  3. More good deeds = more earned eggs
  4. Surprise Easter morning when the eggs are full of goodies

Include a note to highlight an achievement 

Maddy  has loved this.  She  is so excited to showoff her success 🙂

The only problem is…I’m not sure what I’m going to do after Easter!

What to do with this space?

It’s been over a year.  Over a year since Jackie left us and over a year since I posted.  This site was left an untouched-digital-monument. It didn’t feel right to post updates of our life after Jackie and it felt even worse to delete it.  In the background I started to lay down the foundation for a new blog but that didn’t feel right either.

Today I sat down and saw the future for this site: a new chapter for A Year With Jackie. It felt so right I deleted my work-in-progress, reactivated this site and whipped up a post.  After all,  Jackie isn’t gone;  he resides in our hearts and the lessons we learned during his final months forever changed us.
