So wow, Thanksgiving is this week and then December starts Sunday…this is craziness. The year is already closing out. We have a busy week so we got everything ready for our kindness advent this weekend which will start Sunday…December 1…25 acts of kindness leading up to Christmas. You can read about it HERE along with lots of ideas.
I’ve had several emails and messages about what things we will be doing for this year. So here’s what the Kelley family has planned for December: Taking polaroids of shoppers, flowers to Ms. Sherry Harper’s school custodian, treat for our garbage man, buying Christmas for a family, overpay for the Contributor, buy & pump someone’s gas, Redbox rental bucket, paint rocks & leave them on the playground, donuts for school staff, decorate someone’s mailbox, gift card for a single mom, sticky notes on mirrors in a public restroom, treat for our mailman, handout kids books in a store, share a dinner, cookies to our pediatricians office, buy someone’s lunch in the drive thru, load bubble gum machines with quarters, buy school supplies for Harper’s classroom, share Sonic happy hour, babysit for a couple, leave gift cards in shopping carts, give away a recipe with all the needed groceries, bring in neighbors trashcans and give a surprise for a gas station worker.
We’re excited to get busy. We’re excited to be really intentional with kindness this Christmas season. We added some new things we’ve never done, but also left several of our favorites. The kids are ready and already asking when we get to start.
Tell me what you guys are up to for December? Advent…no or yes? If yes, what kind do you do…treats, verses, activities, etc. I’d love to hear your ideas.
