Love Bomb



I've posted in the past about Hate Bombs - those emails that you receive that start out funny or interesting and then they drop a Hate Bomb - usually something about Obama.

Well I found a site that does the exact opposite. Every Thursday I receive an email about someone that needs encouragement - maybe they are depressed, or going through a hard time. Then I have the option to go to that person's blog and leave a word of encouragement. It is easy, it is positive, and it just might make a difference in someone's life. If you have someone you would like to nominate for a Love Bomb, you can do that as well.

This week I dropped by a blog written by a mommy whose tiny baby was about to go through open heart surgery. At last count she had 113 commenters.

If you are interested, you can join here. Go ahead - drop a Love Bomb!



Have a great weekend, everyone!

There's scientific proof that humans are successful as a species because love and cooperation are inborn traits. I don't know where the strange people who own everything came from.

This is a wonderful and natural idea.

Hey, found you through "here under the rainbow" and am looking forward to following your blog. Have been a part of "Love Bomb" for just over a year and love the concept! Feels great to add some sunshine to someone in need. Cheers from Ry at Current Ripple.

What a great concept, especially in times where there is just so much of the opposite in our face daily, sometimes hourly if you're a news junkie. Thanks for the heads up Nancy!
