Hello everyone!! I have come down with a bad cold and bug. Yay! I started this week with a Stove Fire, Lizard in my bed, walls being ripped out of my bathroom and ended it with a cold. But not all is bad as it seems. There was for sure pockets of grace, joy, and goodness. Thank the Lord.
Last week I challenged us to say YES more. You will have to read the past post. I don't mean to busyness per se or being ran over by others. But more like saying yes to a child wanting to snuggle, bake something, or lend a hand when you rather stay in bed.
This month for our Character Focus with the kids we are working on Kindness. I will share about this next week. So, what a perfect challenge for us to practice this as an adult.
Challenge- Do one RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS this week. Use your imagination.
Ideas are all over pinterest and blogs.
bake a goodie and deliver to someone in your neighborhood you really don't know
tape dollars on a vending machine
take some cards, lotions, puzzles, or socks to the nursing home
put carts up in the parking lot
pass out homeless bag
leave diapers and wipes on a baby changing station in a store
take a meal to someone in need
help load groceries in the car for an elderly
take a treat to community workers
take a treat to your doctor offices, dentist, or people that help you
take flowers to someone that you know needs some sunshine
Last week I took sunflowers to the librarian that I have become to know in the past year a little. She has been having a hard time and I felt led to get her a happy. The smile on her face was so rewarding.
Also, there are things you can do inside the home for those closest to you.
Leave a little note and treat in your husbands car
Make up your child's bed or do a chore for them of theirs
Bless your husband in someway.
