posted in Whisper of Kindness Cards
While getting lunch the other day at California’s staple burger chain, In-N-Out, I felt the sudden urge to brighten a complete stranger’s day. While waiting in the drive-thru I noticed the car behind mine was full of children bouncing around after a long day at school with their mother behind the steering wheel. I could relate to that image and could see the fatigue in the mother’s face. I then had the amazing idea to spread a little bit of kindness in order to brighten their day. I decided I would pay for their meal. The surprise and gratitude on the mother’s face was priceless. She waved ‘thank you’ to me and actually ended up paying for the car behind her. I was ecstatic that this small act of kindness put a smile on her face and led to a chain reaction of kindness. I cannot confirm that this chain continued past that, but I can only hope. Whisper of Kindness Cards are a great way to also show your commitment to brightening the days of others and helping to spread kindness whenever and wherever possible.
“If music be the food of love, play on”Music’s ability to profoundly impact someone’s day is universally understood. Music can heal and bring people together. Yet, the most amazing thing about music is that there is a huge variety of it. Every person can enjoy their own favorite type of music in their own way. I, for instance, grew up loving John Denver, Air Supply, Barry Manilow and the likes; and the most ‘rocking out’ concert I had ever been to was the Moody Blues. But in more recent years, I have come to enjoy Taylor Swift, Adele and the occasional Bon Jovi or Queen hit. My children, on the other hand, who take pride in poking fun at my musical preferences, each love their own respective, more ‘current’ artists.Want to show the world your appreciation for music? Take a peak at our music themed Kate Mesta Necklaces. If you are a Beatles fan then you would love the Abbey Road Necklace with its British flag design and shiny silver guitar. Or perhaps you would rather show a more classical side by choosing our stunning Treble Clef Necklace. Whichever necklace you decide upon, wear it with pride as you play your favorite record, CD, or digital download and let your appreciation for music show.

Everyone should have a “Funny Grandma!” My mother, Maureen, earned her nickname when my kids were about 4 and 6 years old. She would drive them around the town on errands etc. and would mistakenly make a wrong turn here and there. So as to not worry my kids that they were lost she would exclaim, “Funny Grandma” with a twinkle in her eye letting the kids know not only that everyone makes mistakes and that’s ok but also that you just can simply turn yourself around and get going on the right track again. These are life lessons that everyone should learn. This nickname has stuck with her through the years and now she delights all those around her by introducing herself with this moniker. She remains the most optimistic person I have ever met. She instantly brightens a room and makes everyone feel at ease. She is truly the pot of gold at the end of our family’s rainbow! I wish for every family to have their own “Funny Grandma” but this one is mine 🙂

March 14th is the day we celebrate that cool mathematical number Pi. Pi is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.
This is a day of pie eating contests, building paper pi chains, pi memorization trials and many more pi-related events. Here at lifehearthome.com we celebrate this cool mathematical day with some incredible sales! These items will be on sale Friday, March 14th ONLY! Get yours now! Happy Pi Day!
