Mommy Wizdom is our host for this week! Her assignment:
Your job this week is to go out and perform a random act of kindness. Now, before you freak out, please read on. This is actually really easy!! This act may be for someone you know or for a perfect stranger. It can be big or small, it'll all up to you. Obviously, it should be something within your means.
Before I knew it, a week had passed and today I wracked my brain trying to think of some random act of kindness that I did. Nothing actually stuck out in my mind - none that were done with the thought "here's a random act of kindness that I can perform."
But as I thought about it a little longer, I realized that my week was full of random acts of kindness. I do them without thinking because, well, that's the kind of person I am (please don't throw tomatoes at me. If you must throw something, make it chocolate!).
I complimented a co-worker on her appearance. Her face lit up.
I let someone get in front of me in line at the store because they had fewer items than I did and I wasn't in a hurry. She was. So I let her go.
We had the "Martha Speaks" costume for the Santa Paws parade this weekend and I made her a giant Santa hat to wear in the parade.
The cub scouts had a pack meeting this week where we (the parents) bought basic toiletry supplies for the women and children at Refuge House and the kids made up the baskets. I volunteered to provide the snack for about 40 kids, so I spent the previous day baking LOTS of cookies.
While the content of this week's kindnesses are somewhat holiday specific, they're fairly representative of my usual weeks. I don't go too far out of my way usually, but I do take advantage of opportunities to be kind when they present themselves - and they present themselves quite frequently.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!!
