It seems like every morning when I turn on my favorite radio show, the DJs are talking about whatever random holiday it is. Forget the well-known ones, like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Memorial Day…I’m talking about the random ones. For instance, did you know that today, February 17th, is National Random Acts of Kindness Day? […]
