And welcome back to SpreadHappyness.com! It was two weeks ago that our precious brother and friend left this earth. As promised…I’m here to remind you of him, to discuss all the ways Rob spread happiness to people, and to challenge you to carry his spirit forward by adopting his special code for spreading happiness to all who now cross your path!
Week #1 Challenge – Wave Big
There are so many things I miss about Rob — but one of the things I miss most, and I’ve missed it all summer, is his big wave. Do you know the one I’m talking about?! I could see it from a mile away. In fact, I could often spot him from my porch — or from the ocean, or from the pier — just by his silhouette. And then, each and every time, that long right arm would swing out to the side and up overhead and he’d raise his big right paw in the air. I have looked for that wave since he disappeared from the beach this spring — and I know it will be the first thing I see when we meet again!
So…your assignment this weekend is to come up with a signature wave! Most people give a small little raise of the hand that hardly gets noticed. I’m talking about something someone can see from a distance! My mother (I can pick on her because she’s not on the internet!) enthusiastically greets everyone by waving both hands in the air like she about to leave port (my partner Jim calls this the “Titanic wave”). Do you have a signature wave? If not, try some on for size this weekend — and let us know how it goes!
Do you remember Rob waving to you? Paint us a picture — tell us about it in the comments!
