'Tis the Season?!

Giving is one of the most important things we do.....and as educators, we know the spirit of giving without seeing immediate results is ongoing.  So how can we impact others during other times of the year, not just during the holidays?  How can we spread the word and encourage others to 'pay it forward' as we try to do daily?  At a recent holiday party, I was lucky enough to be in a discussion with two very intelligent ladies.  One is a grandmother and the other an educator as well as a mother.  We talked about Random Acts of Kindness and how we want our kids and grandkids to be a part of doing things for others.  A list of suggestions was then shared and from there......

We will see what 2012 brings!  My daughter is so excited as we read through the list of suggestions.  She likes the thought of a family renting a movie and finding microwave popcorn taped to the machine.  And what will that librarian say when our books are returned with a surprise $1 bill inside?  I am even more excited about our future works than I was on Christmas morning!  Our plan is to do at least one random act of kindness each week--that makes 52 in the upcoming year.  Doable?  You bet!
