3rd Week of RAOK

IMG_0060Mr B and I left coloring books in waiting rooms at the hospital (a lady from work also gave us 5 to pass out) and we went back up to the occupied floor last for him to hand one to the boy there | Gave out a Blessing Bag to a man that was asking for help on a street corner | Left a “care package” for a friend at work (tea, honey and EmergenC) | Left a new dog toy on the gate at the Doggie Park | Mr B gave a pack of gum to his soccer coach

I got the idea for the gum from Gina and made them up to give to Firefighters, but the day I made them up I decided his soccer coach needed one too. He really does go the extra mile. Her printable can be found by clicking on her name.

I found several pins on the Blessing Bags and just bought random things to put in them. I found everything in the pantry, in the $1 aisle at Target or at Dollar Tree.

Mine included:

  • Comb
  • Hand Warmer
  • Chapstick
  • Kleenex
  • Toothpaste/toothbrush
  • Trail mix
  • Cheese Crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Fruit Snacks
  • A coupon for food without a purchase (I need to get a hold of more of those)
  • I made up the paper to put inside, and wrote an inspirational on the back

I decided after making these that it would be a great team character building experience for the soccer team. Each player bring an item to put in them, this time adding socks and gloves, less food. I am looking into the shelters to find the best place to donate them. The boys also have to find their own inspirational quotes. I think it will be a great experience.

As my birthday quickly approaches, I am finding more and more that I don’t like negativity in my life. I am trying really hard to be more positive which makes happiness easier. I found this on Pinterest once (and of course did up again myself) and too true it is.too short
