My Pink Pig Notebook - The Little Things That Support Breast Cancer Research
I recently went to an office supply store and saw, sitting on the counter, the cutest little notepad. It was pink (those who know me understand how much I dislike the color pink). It had a cute, little white pig holding a sparkly (as much as I hate the color pink, I LOVE sparkly things) purse. The notepad was only $1!!! The proceeds support Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Now, I'm not generally the type to buy products that support causes, and I shamefully admit that I did not buy the notepad to support breast cancer research. I bought it because the cute, little pig was holding a sparkly purse. So, where is this going?
That little notepad made me happy for days. Like a giddy school girl, I showed my friends my cute "pink pig book" explaining where I bought it, how much it cost, and that it was an item sold to support breast cancer research. I know that my $1 contribution makes a difference, but more importantly, because that little book gives me so much joy (it's just too cute), I'm helping to promote the cause by sharing information.
My actions may not have been intentional, but sometimes it's the things we don't intend to do that cause the greatest impact. And, as my husband pointed out, it's always the silly, little things that make me happiest. Isn't that the way life should be??
