Random Acts Of Kindness

Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper and Magnolia Market had shared a post on her blog about random acts of kindness during the Valentine's Holiday that really moved me.  

Valentines Day is  "not only a fun holiday to enjoy, but can provide a perfect opportunity to teach your little ones the beauty of showing love, kindness and appreciation. Not only on this day, but year round". - Joanna Gaines

Polymer Clay Hearts
Hand Written Notes "XOXO"

We set out with our hearts and some sweetheart candies.  Cecilia placed the hearts on doorsteps throughout the neighborhood and passed out the candies to school children on their way home.  That part really excited her.  She would chase down the children, shaking her bag of candy shouting "EXCUSE ME"!  When our basket was empty we talked about how good it felt to bring smiles to the faces of those children.  I asked her if she would like to do that again next year; to which she replied "Oh yes please".  

It is never too early to teach our children to have a servants heart.
