Have you ever used this phrase as an answer when someone asked you why you did something? Did you give this answer because you weren’t sure why or just because? Today you’re in good company because it’s Just Because Day. So how do you celebrate?
Maybe you could have cake and ice cream for breakfast while wearing your shirt inside out. Just because. That’s something silly, but you could also do something helpful like a random act of kindness. Send someone a card, or call someone you haven’t talked to in a while. Pay for someone’s meal at a restaurant. Do yard work for a neighbor. A few years ago, a neighbor boy and his father helped us spread gravel in our yard. I’ll never forget that kindness. (Here in Arizona many of us don’t have grass. We have pea gravel in our yards.) It could be as simple as letting someone go ahead of you in line. There are hundreds of kindnesses you can do. Just because.
This day is a chance to do something out of the ordinary, get out of your rut, and do something crazy for no rhyme nor reason. Add some spontaneity to your life by taking an impromptu trip or surprise someone with flowers. Just because.
I have a lot to share today. Just because. The first book in my Pinecrest series is on sale today for 99 cents. You can get it at these retailers.
So just because I’m going to share the cover for my upcoming novella which is part of the Puppies for Christmas series of novellas. It will be on preorder for 99 cents beginning on September 1. It releases on October 22.
Just because I’m going to give away another novella about a puppy and Christmas, Puppy Love and Mistletoe, to one person who leaves a comment. I will draw the winning name on August 28, 2020 at 9PM MST.
What would you do just because?
