One of the best parts of these activities is the opportunity to get your family involved....especially the kids. Kids imitate what they see, so it is important they see adults being kind to one another.
One night, the first year I started my list of 26, I sat down with my family so we could come up with some ideas. We had a giant crock pot of chili on the counter that was ready for us to have for dinner that night, but could have easily fed two families. As we sat at the kitchen table writing down ideas, my son, who was 10 at the time, decided we needed to immediately drop what we were doing, and take half of it to our neighbors down the street who had just had a baby a couple weeks prior. So we bagged up a container with half the chili, a sleeve of saltines, some wrapped chocolates, and headed down the road to surprise our friends. We got to spend some time with friends, get some "baby love" and share some laughs. Good times for all!
