 January dates selected represent the theme “Each One a Treat.” (Awards selected by me for this site only.)

  • Which “treat” from the list above catches your attention? 

National Soup Month reminded me of soup kitchens.  Do you know what soup kitchens are?  Soup lines?  Learn more about these this month.  How can you dish out hope?

In Honor of National Soup Month and Soup Kitchens Everywhere.

  • Which “treat” from the list makes you say, “Yes!” 
  • Why not fill your calendar with “treats” for yourself or others?  Notice that many treats don’t require being baked in an oven.
  • Think:  If I were sick, lonely, sad, or afraid what treat would I appreciate?  Do just that for yourself, if you need it, or for someone else who does. 
  • Write about a time when you shared a treat with someone.  Did it help?  How could you tell?  How did it make you feel?
  • Celebrate January by thinking and acting on something else from the treat list above.  For example, what would a Blog Blitz look like?  Consider visiting more blogs than usual this month.  Subscribe to a new one or tell a friend about one you especially like.  Have fun!
