It’s Friday…it’s Kindness Counts Friday (I’m hosting, whilst Kim is on a blog break)…and this week? Another Christmas edition! Yay!
Time to recount all the kind acts you’ve engaged in or witnessed and time for me to do a round-up of kindness-related posts that have struck me this week as I’ve been moseying through Internet Land.
Our kind acts:
– We’ve been baking like we’ve been possessed by some sort of fiendish Baking Monster…biscuits for presents, fancy muffins for nursery friends, ‘Santa hat brownies‘ for my son’s school friends, cakes for all and sundry…you name it, we’ve baked it this week! There’s something so satisfying about baking, isn’t there?
– We’ve made some stockings for the Love Train idea (explained in detail here). We’ll be delivering them to children in need over the next few weeks.
-My son’s finished school for the year (yeah!) and his three pairs of school shoes – which he was bursting the seams of – have been donated for other children. As have most of his school shirts and shorts (along with some packs of basic school supplies). They were all still very useable, just getting too small for him. It felt good to do this as, where we live, there’s a high percentage of children who are unable to get an education because their parents can’t afford basic school supplies or transport.
Posts I’ve loved (sorry – very scarce this week – what with everything that’s happening at home for Christmas and blogging for Blogmas, I’ve not had much time to read around the web like I usually do…but it is a really good one!):
-Love anything that Alexandra Franzen writes but really loved this post – entitled ‘What’s your choice’…do go and read it. It’ll have you thinking and wondering how you can change your ways.
And – last but not least – for any of my readers who like to go the whole hog during festive season (LOL!)…
Don’t say I don’t kindly offer my readers the Very Best Beauty Instructions!
