Happy new year

Hi everyone, 

So 2013 is almost over here in Australia! Today I completed the last of this years kindnesses! :) Another 365days of kind deeds! I'm sure there are more than 365 actual kindnesses done this year but that just shows how simple it is to do!!! 

Next year it starts all over again!!! :) 

Wishing you all a happy new year!

Blessed... A few days after Christmas! :)

Hey everyone,

So in Australia it's a couple of days after Christmas, and I am still avoiding the shops and the after-Christmas sales! I have been given so much this week that I am overcome with gratitude! Now I just need to find homes for it all! 

How can you say thank you to those who have made a difference? 

One act of kindness my mum & I received yesterday was that our neighbour had swept up the leaves & cleaned up the cobwebs on our front veranda. I have been so busy with sorting out Christmas presents & getting things done for others, since I got home from my trip, that I hadn't had a chance to do it yet! I must admit it was bothering me, so it was simply wonderful to receive that small act of kindness! 

My sister Vandra (who helps on the Facebook page), her husband & kids have welcomed mum & I into their home, shared meals & gifts with us...etc! the kids even let us sleep in for a couple of hours extra yesterday! I have even discovered I don't mind playing with Lego with my 5 & 9 yr old niece & nephew, which keeps them happily distracted! So blessed!!! Thank you!!!!

I have been given so much... Thank you just doesn't seem to cut it! But thank you to my friends & family who have spoilt me with presents, kind words & loving actions! You have made a huge difference to both me & my mum (whom I care for)! 

To all those who do not know me personally... I just wanted to Thank you!!! Because you have welcomed me into your lives with a few clicks of a button & that spreads more kindness! Thank you for your continued & loving support of this blog!!! 

Luv Daena! X

Alive and well...

Hello my lovely blog followers. I have so much to tell you and not a lot of time... 

For those of you who follow my page on Facebook you may already know...

 I did a 2 & a half month trip around the world and had an amazing experience that I am so very grateful for!

 Sadly I had limited access to internet and mainly it was to let my loved ones know I was alright and had arrived safely at my next destination! So I didn't have much time to keep you all posted on the blog! I tried to keep Facebook updated but I have been terribly remiss in blogging! 

So this is my HUGE apology! Sorry for dropping off the face of the blogosphere for a whopping 6 months! 

If you are wondering if I have been keeping up with my kindnesses... You betcha! :) I feel like that is a part of me now... And I'm hoping to do it again next year! Last year I was a LOT more prepared for getting you to see all my kindnesses before the end Of the year... This year... Not so much! I feel like all of this year I have been running behind! 

So much has happened to me this year on a personal level that I have been struggling to do much on a regular basis! Or specifically anything additional like blogging on a regular basis! 

My wonderful sister Vandra has stepped up and helped me out with the Facebook page particularly when I was on my Trip as I never knew when I would have internet access! Thank you so very much V!!! :) 

I have had so much love and support for this year of kindnesses and on my round the world trip! I am so grateful for you all! 

I hope I haven't let anyone down! Because you are all capable of such amazing acts of kindness!!! If you ever need a 365days of kindness buddy... I'm here! :) 

Anyways, I hope you are all prepared for the Christmas season! I hope you are all surrounded by love & kindness on Christmas Day (or for those like us... The three days over Christmas)! :) 

For those of you who celebrated the solstice last night... Happy summer solstice (in the Southern Hemisphere) and winter solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere)! Hope you have a happy & blessed time of year! 

For those who do not celebrate or do not believe... I wish you love and kindness and a lovely end to the year! 

Thanks for the last few years worth of support!!! You are all amazing! :) x
