We had a neat week trying to find ways to do Random Acts of Kindness which was the challenge last week. We took $5's and put a dollar and tax money in a small bag and wrote, "Treat Yourself Today" on them and passed them out at the Dollar Store. There were so many smiles and one lady almost cried. One lady was needing a card and was scrambling for change. It was so neat to see my kids see the looks on people. They were amazed that a Dollar can still have a impact.
Then we took a milkshake to the cash register lady at the Dollar Store. She works 3 jobs and just lost one of her jobs. We never met her before yesterday. When we were checking out she was talking about how tough it has been. So, we went and got her a milkshake and delivered it to her. She was so shocked.
The kids have been doing little extra things here and there for each other and myself. Without prompting. Making each others beds, doing dishes, and laundry. Even watching how they respond to each other.
This week the challenge is going to be for me personally because my health needs it and if any of you would like to jump on I would love it. We can hold each other accountable.
The Challenge is to eat from Monday to Friday vegetables, fruit, and lean meat. Drink a glass of lemon water in the morning and limit junk. You can have one treat a day within reason. Try to make it healthy and not full of sugar.
Who will join me? It is just for 5 days!!!!
