“Light of the world shine on me…LOVE is the answer.” : SpReAd the Love Update

bleak midwinter

Yesterday was an awful day for me for a number of reasons, including the most recent half foot of snow that fell on my habitat. Too much time cooped up in the house, every one is getting on each other’s nerves and I’m beginning to feel the effects of the winter blues…(often now classified as part of SAD).  Today was immediately better as the sun broke through the clouds on my way to work…turns out light (phototherapy) is a common way to treat the winter blues in a literal sense.

SpReAd the Love was a source of figurative light in the past week too.  Here are some highlights of the weekly totals:

imageThe RAworld Secret Valentine a plethora of lovely Valentine wishes in all shapes and sizes, and was great fun for one and all.


Last week we also marked a direct donation to Richard Armitage’s Just Giving page which credits SpReAd the Love for inspiration…fantastic!!

Jazzy also has some great news about the children’s book challenge…check it out here

It seems like there was something else that I wanted to mention…what was it?  Let me think….oh yeah – THIS!!!


As of Sunday February 16, we not only met our first goal of 200 kindnesses, we surpassed it by 10!!!  LOVE really is the answer, let’s keep SpReAding is shall we?!

      When I was putting this together, I got that “We did it” jingle in my head but couldn’t place. Of course I Googled it. Naturally I had to share the ear worm – I’m very generous that way 😉
