Keeping The Kindness Going
--by MagicalMoments, posted Jun 12, 2011
I wanted to post an update since my last story of giving out 5 boxes of new and used items to 5 families in need (by placing an add in our local classified section) and then on Christmas eve, taking 6 fully loaded turkey dinners to people on our downtown streets!
We recently found out a about a family that had lost their home to fire just before Christmas. My mother is selling her house and hads lots of things she doesn't need. She had them come by to get as many items of furniture as they needed, and I (having two girls with more toys than they need) put a box together for the little girl and boy (I had a few things from when I had a little guy in my care last year). My mom told me the little girl was so happy fwith a stuffed bunny that we had put in the box... it just made me so happy to know we were helping in such a little way but big for them!
Inspired to keep on with the kindness, I made little gift bags that I took to my dentist and the secretary that answers his calls!! She even gave me a hug on the way out which was not expected! So I left the dentists with a smile which is unusual :o)
