What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

R's home sick-- cookies to the rescue!

My girlfriend R has come down with the flu. I started feeling early on that I should do something special to care for her. I remember a day in the past when I fell ill with a strange exhaustion--as soon as I got up, I would get completely exhausted and would have to lie down again--and the girl I was with stayed by my side all day. All day! I couldn't believe she did that, and I would never expect anyone to do it again. But she did it, and it made a lasting impression. So I wanted to do something special for R. I brought her medicine, soup, and TV shows to watch. And I baked her cookies.

ONE GOOD DEED: Bake R cookies while she's home with the flu.
