Inspired by this box of sunshine I found on Pinterest, I decided to send a basket of sunshine to a coworker having a particularly difficult week. I already had a yellow basket hanging around. Go figure. I filled the basket with some leftover yellow tissue paper because, yes, I am one of those people that saves tissue paper from packages. Then I stuffed the basket full of bright, sunshiny items – a pineapple candle; a hard, plastic cup; various candies; small, orange sodas, bright, fast-drying nail polish; and honey-infused chapstick. Topped off with an encouraging card, this sweet basket was a day-brightener as evidence by the email and phone calls I received.
Maybe there’s someone around you that could use a box, basket, bag, cup, whatever of sunshine this week, too.
