For lent this year I decided to do an act of kindness each day.
Wed:Valentines cup cakes to neighbor family.
Thurs: rice krispy kiss to bus driver
Fri:Planned to give treats to star watchers but could not find them.
Sat: rice krispy kiss to hostess of AAUW work day.
Sun: Beer bread to a different neighbor.
Mon: a surprise comic book for Daddy from the little ones.
Tues: mailed letters to 2 friends I haven’t spoken to in a long time.
Thurs: sent unexpected gift to a friend
Fri:picked up paper/package for a neighbor who is out of town
Sat: lead a cub scout activity to gine someone else a break
Sun: unexpectedly took treats to a meeting
Tues:Helped soccer coach we don’t know to set up/clean up for practice
Wed:a Walmart gift card to daughter’s teacher
Thurs: gave a little pack of activities and gifts to my daughter’s classmate who is moving
Fri: traveling, so I gave
Sat: gave out goodies to ladies at my training
Sun: horrible day traveling – I totally forgot.
Mon: fruit bowl to another neighbor
Tues: took a friend to coffee
Wed: went to lunch with a new friend, but she insisted on paying. My turn next time.
Thurs: Wrote letters to 3 ladies
Fri: Went to lunch with one of the teachers (not my kids’ teacher)
Sat: cookies for neighbors
This is harder than I thought it would be. Time to turn it up more!
Sadly, I will have to count this as a fail. Doing an act of kindness every day is either harder than I thought, or I need to count little things I do anyway like opening doors, reaching groceries on shelves, distracting crying children, etc. On the other hand I do those minor things pretty regularly, so I guess it’s not a total fail.
