When the weather grows cold and snowfalls are deep, build a snowman or two, with kids!
Teach kids not to become upset if a passerby grabs and runs off with the snowman's hat and scarf, just don the snowmen with another.
Perhaps the person was homeless or shivering with fright on a cold day or night, and your offerings warmed both body and spirit.
Random acts of kindness are a way for children to put compassion for others into practice.
Perhaps there are elderly or homebound neighbors in your neighborhood who would appreciate a kind word or gesture.
Suggestion: Send a postcard that is sure to lift the spirits. No return address, send it anonymously, and although the recipient may wonder just who the sender is they will undoubtedly smile over the sender's virtue of kindness.
The Spirit of Christmas is GIVING, a year-round virtue applicable to all living things.
Do not forget dogs (and cats) in animal shelters awaiting new forever homes.
If the kids in your care are too young to volunteer at a local animal shelter, perhaps saving and spending a few pennies from their weekly allowance on treats for the pets and animals in the shelter is something these children can do.
Spread a bit of sunshine into the lives of others!
Wearing this sunshine pin in plain sight wherever you go is a surefire way to ignite a warm smile upon the face of all who see it.
Spreading sunshine is my favorite way to make someone's day! And, it is absolutely amazing how I am blessed by the rays bouncing right back at me.
Begin each day with a breakfast of super foods, energizing both body and brain for embracing and implementing change.
A two-page spread in the book "Change The World Before Bedtime" was the inspirational rhyme and reason for my food serving tray design.
How true it is that we need feed ourselves a healthy diet to keep up the energy to make a positive difference in the lives of others and our own.
