It’s been another week and we’ve completed our 24 days of Random Acts of Christmas Kindness. We got the idea from Coffee Cups and Crayons.
On the 18th (Sunday), we fed the birds. It got really cold the night before (okay, it was in the 40s during the day, but for where we live, that’s cold) so the birds were slow to come out, but eventually we saw some of them eating the seeds we tossed out in our front and back yards.
On the 19th (Monday), we wrote happy notes and took them to the library and put them in random books on the shelves. Hopefully, some people will get a nice smile or pick me up some time in the future thanks to those notes.
On the 20th (Tuesday), we put a Sonic gift card in an envelope addressed to our mail carrier in the outgoing mail slot. We just hope she noticed it when she pulled out the mail.
On the 21st (Wednesday), we gathered up carts from the Target parking lot and put them nicely in the corrals to make it easier for the employees who have to bring the carts in. Cameron did it with no shoes on. He hates wearing shoes no matter what the temperature unless he absolutely has to (today was mid-60s, but even when we were in the 40s he still refused to wear them).
On the 22nd (Thursday), we made blueberry muffins and took them to the people who work at our pharmacy. I don’t think people tend to take pharmacists Christmas treats because they were pretty surprised.
On the 23rd (Friday), we candy cane bombed a parking lot. It was oddly fun! (And Cameron did it barefoot yet again.)
On the 24th (Saturday), we drew pictures and took them to one of our local nursing homes and gave them out to some of the residents. They were so happy to get them. We were rewarded with a whole lot of big smiles.
So that a wrap on our 2016 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness. We had so much fun with it. We’ve decided to do some sort of random act of kindness once a month January through November and then do the 24 days again next December. It’s so nice to spread happy and, as Fritz said as we were candy cane bombing, “This really feels kind of good.”
