Loved Twice

Grandmaster Lee with his granddaughters Ashlyn and Charlotte at our holiday party!

Whenever our entire family is out at a restaurant together, my parents always insist on paying for the meal. On Tuesday, we were all out at lunch and rather than arguing about it, I got the bill from the waitress and paid before they could say a word. It was just a small gesture as a thank you to my parents. My dad enjoyed it so much that he said we could pay for every meal from here on out:)

 

A Bay Area mom and her organization, Loved Twice, making a difference and it all started with one act of kindness…

    12/28 – Today, I had a weekly call to my dad who lives in San Jose and learned that he has been sick. He is 86 years old and loves photography as a hobby. He teaches photography for free and often has exhibitions with amazing pictures. He told me he needed to create a website for all his photos; ready for the Vietnamese Tet (New Year) coming up, however, he is too weak to do so. I told him I would design the website for him. That just took a whole lot of stress out of him.

    After dinner tonight (10 people) I insisted everyone stay at the table and continue their conversation and I did the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen.

    Grayson went to a kung fu friend’s house in San Ramon today. I told the mom that when I picked Grayson up later, I could take her child to my house and bring her to kung fu class in Alamo later. She could have the extra hour at home. She was happy with the offer and took me up on it.

    I was doing research for my science fair project, and then I randomly remembered Goodsearch, a search engine kind of like Google, but which donates money to a charity any time you do a search. I selected the “Cystic Fibrosis Foundation”, and started working on my research. The website didn’t give me an exact total, but through using it, I played a small part in helping the cause for a cure for cystic fibrosis.

    So this is a little different. I went to a yoga class as Mrs Buckley’s guest and enjoyed not only the movement but also the mindfulness. As we focus on spontaneous acts of kindness and of giving to others, it’s important to remember to also give ourselves small acts of kindness. The yoga teacher used the theme of “reflection”, which fit so perfectly. While we each continue giving of ourselves to others, we should also take time to reflect on how this enriches our own lives. Also, this is a great time to reflect on how far each of us has come in our own lives and our many pursuits and challenges. As for me, I taught a group of women in their bootcamp class. At the end of class, which I normally participate in with them do I know how hard it is, I gave each person a very heartfelt compliment. I hope it was half as meaningful to them as it was for me!!!

    Mr. Yu mentioned a website search engine Goodsearch. If you go to tat site you can select a charity/school to receive a donation each time you search. They also have a link to Goodshop, which has discounts and donations for the charity of your choice. I’ve done all my online shopping thru them (unfortunately they don’t work with Amazon anymore, but they do with a ton of other websites–check them out!) for a number of years and have “earned” almost $250 in donations from online businesses for Books for the Barrios.
