I have the best neighbor in the whole world – she is kind, generous and is always calling me up to share when there is a great local deal. When she has excess from her garden she always shares with me. And even last week I was desperate for some parchment paper and she was so kind to let me have some.
So I wanted to do something nice for her – to hopefully make her smile a little since she is always so good to me and my family. And you just never know when someone might need a little kindness.
You should have seen the look on her face, she LOVED getting a little basket of fresh organic local eggs. I even got a hug out of the deal. 🙂
But shhhh… don’t tell her the basket and little dishcloth inside the basket were from the dollar store. With fresh herbs from my garden, this gift only costed me $2. So not only is this lovely gift, but it’s super thrifty too!
That evening I made up another basket to give to someone whom I visit teach (there are a few ladies in my church I am assigned to check in, share spiritual mini lessons that uplift and be there when they need help). I think she liked it too.
I know that not everyone has chickens, but I hope you get the idea to find something you can do or make/bake and be thoughtful of someone else. Many of us in this crazy busy world just have days when it would be nice to be thought of.
By being kind you can make a big difference in the happiness of someone else which in turn can bring you a lot of happiness too.
