Blog prompt: (April 4 was Tangible Karma Day) Giving of your time, of your love, of your talents, of your â??extrasâ?â?¦ Tangible Karmaâ?¢ Day celebrates when giving feels as good as receiving. What will you do today to increase your karma?
It’s funny that this prompt came up today.Â This past weekend my husband and I helped host a 60th birthday party for our neighbor.Â He works so hard and is one of the nicest people I have ever met.Â His wife is ill and he also has to take care of her, their home and work a part time job.
My husband and I felt he needed a day for himself and have a good laugh or two.Â So, my husband took a couple of oldie songs, changed the lyrics around and formed a group called The Age Spots.Â Thank goodness we know a couple of really good singers.Â The song “YMCA” was changed to “AARP” and the group dressed up as their version of The Village People.Â You can see them in the picture above.Â The birthday boy is in black.Â We also made tshirts with his picture on them.
We also took a few pictures of the birthday boy’s past life, changed them around a bit and made a short little video clip.Â We also fixed foods that he enjoyed.Â I didn’t know 60+ could have so much fun!
The show wasn’t perfect for sure and my boom box had serious technical problems, but the birthday boy laughed all afternoon.
That’s all I needed to see.Â He really needed a day off and he told Glenn and I that he will remember this day forever.Â His pour cheeks were hurting from laughing so much.Â Good karma was busting from the seams that day for sure.
I have so much to show you this week by Julie Marie Designs.

Have a great Karma day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
