As we move from Grateful November into December, so begins the time of giving to others. The definition of kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. In December we typically show kindness by being generous, but could we also show kindness through acts of service to others? We can use this time of giving to teach our children that we can be kind and help others by doing for them rather then buying for them. I stumbled across this Kindness Calendar for December and look forward to trying it out with my own children. There are many fun activities to do that do not take a lot of time/effort but offer much kindness to others. While we all may not celebrate holidays in December, the Kindness Calendar gives us all tips on how to change the life of someone in a moment.
Some things to try might be saying something positive to all we meet, giving compliments to others, cooking an extra meal for someone in need, and counting smiles! December is such an exciting month for most but can also be a very sad month for others. Why not make an extra effort to be kind and generous to all? Let us know how it goes!
