30 Days of Thankfulness-Day 2

Through rain, snow, sleet and hail...despite the popularity of email and social networks...our postal service keeps on working.

Today our Intentional Act of Kindness was to make a little thank you note for the mail carrier to find in our mailbox. The boys helped me decorate the note. I racked my brain trying to think of something small that we could leave with the note and realized that we have a load of Hershey bars left over from Father's Day. (We bought them to pass out to the dads at church and ended up with a full box to bring home, which rocks because WE LOVE HERSHEY's chocolate:) Anyway, realizing that we have the chocolate bars available was great because it is something that we already have on hand and we didn't have to go out and spend money on new treats for this activity.

So the boys helped me put our note of gratitude (and Hershey bar) in the mailbox (with our "kindness" letters that we didn't get mailed yesterday:).

Unfortunately, we did not get to see the mail pick up today...I think Silas was really wanting to see the surprise unfold. But the important part is that we did something small to bless someone today and that, my dear bloggy friends, is what it's all about:)


  1. Love the candy bar and note, you probably made the mail carrier's day :)

  2. What an thoughtful idea! I am just remembering now that my mom used to do this for our mailman growing up. Stopping over from the 30 Days of Kindness link-up!

  3. Oh great idea!! My kids would love doing this!!
