Do you ever have a day, when you want to do something for someone just because?

I work for a local Cancer Charity, and although we are a small team, we are all incredibly busy.  My lovely boss Lisa, is snowed under at the moment with work, and with things going on in her personal life, at the moment, that yesterday was my just because day.

She has been travelling a lot with work, so when she does I go and feed her cat for her, which I did yesterday.  Whilst there in her kitchen, I left her a bunch of flowers, a 2 ltr bottle of diet pepsi, and box of mint matchmakers (all of which are some of her favourite things), and this card that I'd made the day before:

Lisa came back last night, and shortly after I got a lovely text from her to say "thank you so much for the pressies and very kind card.  Made me cry!  Very, very lovely to come home too.  You are so thoughtful and it is appreciated.  Thanks for looking after Lulu".

It made my day to do something for someone else that didn't cost much, but was really appreciated.  I then found out that yesterday was world kindness day(!) which I didn't know when I planned my surprise for Lisa.

I'd like to enter this card into the:
