Friday Family Fill-In: It's Nice to do Nice Things (Part 2)

In case you missed it from last Friday's post, it's Random Acts of Kindness month in our home this month.

Our motto: "It's nice to do nice things for people."

Our goal: Brighten the day of unsuspecting others by giving them a moment of unexpected happiness. 

Y'all? This has rocked my socks. Seriously. There is nothing like hearing my little buddy recite our motto, or ask what nice thing we're doing today, or smile so big when he realizes we are doing something kind.

I highly recommend it. So, please join us. Spread kindness. You won't regret it.

Here are just a few of the things we've done over the last week:

We let someone go in front of us in the cashier's line

We left a package of books in front of a local museum for a little reader to discover and take home


We purchased a bracelet to support a little girl fighting a battle against leukemia

 We took freshly baked cookies to the local fire department

 We left encouraging words on a public restroom mirror

And tomorrow, something we're quite proud of: We recently helped raise money in my late grandfather-in-law's name and will be helping to assemble and deliver Thanksgiving meals to 80 families in the Aiken, South Carolina community.

Onward we go in our mission to be thankful for what we have and giving to unsuspecting others. We hope you'll join us in this mission.
