Tie One On

Having enjoyed my reading through the Apron Memories blog, I have decided to join her "National Tie One On" day, which will take place on November 24, 2010.

Here's what it's about:

Four years ago, I noticed that Thanksgiving was talked about in terms more commonly associated with stress, than joy. I remembered my mother’s absolute love of Thanksgiving, as a day more than anything else of sharing and gratefulness. So I created National Tie One On Day™ as an annual opportunity to return the “give” to Thanksgiving by sharing our good fortune with someone in need of a kind gesture.

Participation is simple. On the day before Thanksgiving, November 24th this year, pause in the preparation of your own meal, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on…an apron, of course! and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone without your bounty… a neighbor, friend or family member in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word.

I know it to be true that whether you live in a high rise apartment building or on a quiet block, no matter which direction you walk out of your own front door, someone deserving of a gesture of kindness is close by.

National Tie One On Day™ is a win-win, for the participant and the receiver. By embracing National Tie One On Day™, you will make someone else’s day brighter.

I have placed the "Tie One On Day" button on my sidebar. When we get to November, I'll post a reminder.

That means I have ONLY ten months to get my apron done!

Sounds like a great idea. Too bad we have to have some set day to do something nice for someone. Guilty!

I know what you mean. It helps to be reminded to stop the day-to-day usual ways of doing things and look around, doesn't it?
