Dropped a dollar in the red bucket on my way out of the store tonight. Feels like Christmas!

The kitchen crew at work adopted a family for Christmas and we all bought them gifts!

Slow and steady wins the race.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

I helped purchase toys for a woman's shelter. I took my kids along and let them help to. (My friend plays Santa for the shelter every year and he collects donations.)

We had three full carts of toys and it was a lot of fun. It really warmed my son's heart...... he said that he wishes he could see the children open up the toys. He would love to see their faces. I was something very heartfelt and rewarding to do!


I also took some time and cleaned for my in laws before they returned home. They have been dealing with my FIL being sick with cancer so anything I can do to help them out.

Welcome to the BLC Holiday Break Challenge for the "Week Before Christmas!"
This is the SPIRIT OF THE SEASON Challenge.

This week's challenge is simple! Practice a random act of kindness!

Invite someone who doesn't have anywhere else to go on Christmas Eve/Day to dine with your family
Donate a toy/gift to a toy drive or giving tree in your community
Hold the door for a loaded down shopper in the mall
Let the person with "just one thing" skip ahead of you in line at the store
Share smiles! Give someone a compliment
Offer to watch someone's kids so they can do some last minute shopping or wrapping

If you practice your random act of kindness, be sure to post here with a:
