Our wonderful hostess with the mostess this week is Mommy Wizdom and here is 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. For instance, don't go out and buy your next door neighbor a car and then complain to me that you can't make your mortgage payment, ok?
Great assignment Mommy Wizdom, especially at this time of year!! I can't wait to read all the posts.
I did not buy my neighbor a car, but I did let them know of one for sale and they purchased it!! Seriously, I try to do Random Acts of Kindness on a regular basis. I am a Girl Scout Leader and our troop is constantly doing community service projects. Their latest one was adopting a family for Thanksgiving. We were able to deliver the food and gifts they purchased directly to the family, it was a very heartwarming day. The family was extremely appreciative and the girls loved it, especially playing with the children in the family.
We also do Random Acts of Kindness within our family. We regularly thank each other for cooking, cleaning up, etc. Dave and I are very polite to each other and our children model our behavior. Every night my family thanks me for cooking, it is the little things that mean so much and add up.
Today we crossed a bridge and paid a toll. We paid for the car behind us. Our children were very excited about this and couldn't wait for the car to pass us so they could wave to them. We routinely are polite to waitresses/waiters, shopkeepers, and other "strangers" we come in contact with.
You give a smile you get one in return....you give off negative vibes, they bounce right back to you.
Spread the love!!!
