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:)
I'm just a small town girl that married her dreamy high school sweetheart. I've been a lot of things since graduating college but my best job has been that of wife and stay-at-home momma. I have 5 children, age 8 and under, and the ins and outs of our daily life is crazy and chaotic. I don't know how I would do it without the help of an amazing, compassionate, Almighty God (and also very nearby, helpful family members:) * * * * *
My flesh and my heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
