35 Random Acts of Kindness

I love Christmas!! Time we spend with family, traditions, the lights, the smells, and the magic of the season. As a mom, you all know, we are trying to make sure it’s the best Christmas ever, for our families and we get a little stress by all the things we need to get done. Sometimes it feels like were rushing around so much that we don’t have time to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas!
Every year, I try to take a few minutes a day to find things that will help my family focus on the Christmas spirit. Last year, we did a list of random acts of kindness. The great thing about this, is that it doesn’t take a lot of time to do one a day but boy, does it put a smile on your face for the rest of the day! You could have a family meeting and come up with your own list or if your family is like mine (a little competitive) you could see who could do the most by Christmas! Trust me, this will make it the BEST Christmas ever!!!!!!
Here is a few suggestions that get you started.

  1. 12 Days of Christmas for a neighbor or a family member- your kids will love this because they get to be sneaky, while leaving the gift!

  3. Give your kids old clothes to someone that could use them.
  4. Shovel someone’s walk
