Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Cookie In A Pocket!

--by omtaratutare, posted Dec 30, 2007

After my son's soccer game, he ran over to me and said, "Mom, do you have a smile card?"  I said, "I think so." He is telling me to hurry up. We run to my purse and start digging through the million and one pockets and pouches. At last, I found one.

"What do you need it for?" I asked him.

He responds, "It is for Dad. I did not want my cookie and I know how he loves sugar. So, I quietly put it in his pocket while he was talking and now I want to add a smile card!"

His action and request melted my heart and filled me with joy.  Not to mention his Dad, who was brimming with joy as he bite into his warm chocolate chip cookie!

This will bring a whole new level of tagging to our household.  Secret Spy Operatives are now on the move!  Stay tuned for more. :)

1. ding dong ditch the neighbor leaving for them --they hide and watch them come out and get the treat.
2. they like to come up and give me a hug or kiss and then hand me a card
3. they leave their grandparents notes or pictures with a card attached.

once you get going it is hard to stop them:-) have fun!
