Fun Monday - No act of kindness is senseless


Writing this on the run, so I apologize in advance for it's faults.

Today's assignment from
Mommy Wizdom is random acts of senseless kindness done in the past week. This week was full of little kindnesses for me. My daughter and I took hot cocoa to the Salvation Army bell ringers while we were out shopping.

We took cookies to our vet's office.

We took cookies to my new denture makers. (new dentures and a new denture maker)

We adopted Charity, our new little chihuahua (who will be going back to the vet today).

We smiled, sang carols (in line at stores) and have generally been spreading the spirit of God's love everywhere we go.


Correction: My daughter reminded me that it was not carols that we were singing in the store. It was "Salve Regina" which some of you may remember from Sister Act. The school kids sang it at Mass on Friday and their rendition was a little dirge-y for our taste but we managed to wait till we were not in Church to let it wail.

You are kind, kind people - plus, I love when people in line break into spontaneous song! It always lifts my spirits, no matter what they're singing!

Lots of Rak here, sounds like agreat week for you. Always nice to spread God's love. Your new little puppy is so adorable, she is one lucky little critter.

I, too, give cookies or baked goods to people who take care of me or my family. A good freind told me once to always take care of the people who take care of those you love. It has stuck with me and anytime of year I will bring a baked goody to a doctor's appt. or to my kid's teachers. Sounds as though you have a similar outlook.

The kidlet told me today, when Adeste Fidelis (my favorite!!!) came on that it was not a Christmas song but a church song. Me thinks he's a bit confused.

What a great idea to take hot chocolate to the bell ringers! I will definitely try that one. It's going to be cold here in the next few days!

Thanks for participating. Sounds like you had fun in the process.

I would love to be somewhere where people started signing carols while waiting in line! And I hope the puppy makes it...
