Today's Act of Kindness was heaps of fun!!
We bought 12 Candy Canes and made little cards that said "Something Sweet for Someone Sweet. Join us in our 25 days of Random Acts of Kindness." We cut two slits in the cards and poked the canes through. We set them in a basket and Jack and I donned our Santa hats. At the appropriate time he and I headed across the street to the bus stop where the kiddies were due to get dropped off home for the day. It was pretty breezy out there but Jack and I amused ourselves and kept warm by jumping up and down and dancing as we waited for the bus. Since we were both in our Santa hats, every car that went by felt obliged to wave to us for some reason!!! It was hilarious to see them but of course we obligingly waved back!! When the bus finally arrived Jack walked up to it and as the children departed he offered them each a Candy Cane and wished them a Merry Christmas. The children were really excited ( and the children who remained on the bus were intrigued and probably frustrated...! :) ) If I'd have been thinking I'd have had enough for each child on the bus too, but I didn't this time. (Hmm.... you can get those tiny candy canes... there's about 60 in the box.... *Note to self...!!) The children were all smiles and very grateful AND there were three left so we each were able to dip one in a nice hot cup of cocoa when we got back home!
