Happy Monday! We're bringing back our 365 Acts of Kindness for 2014, encouraging everyone to do one nice thing for someone else every day, for the next year. It doesn't have to be random- you can certainly be kind to someone you know, or a complete stranger. The idea is to pass love around- help someone else out, and inspire them to do the same. Sometimes, we have to change to be the change we want to see in this world.
Every Monday, we're posting a weekly roundup of Acts of Kindness, where you can share how you've helped others, or how others have blessed you by their acts.
Our Acts of Kindness from Last Week...
I wanted to actually share a couple of Christmas surprises that were a blessing to me/my family. We received a Christmas card from our landlord, who is also a family friend and our neighbor, and to our surprise, they included gift card for us. It was so sweet of them, and helped us out while we were on vacation over Christmas break. Another gift that I was blessed by, was a beautiful mug, a piece of pottery, that was given to me by my friend Michelle, who teaches music with me at church. She remembered me saying that I love mugs, but my hubby won't let me buy anymore, since I have so many, so she bought me a beautifully made mug to add to my collection. It's my new favorite, and it certainly brightened my day!
I was on vacation last week, so I didn't have too many opporunities for random acts of kindness. One thing we were sure to do, however, was to make sure we had lots of special things for little B man to do. It's hard for a three year old to understand why the adults just want to sit around and read/relax all day, so we planned lots of special activities, just for him, and he had a wonderful vacation, too!
This is Week 34 of this special Bloggers & Readers Challenge, and I am so eager to read everyone's comments on how they were able to offer kindness, or how they received kindness from someone else last week.
Be sure to leave us your comment, and keep spreading the love around! You never know- your comment might be featured in next week's post, or we might randomly show kindness to one our our readers!!
