We’ve been counting down to Christmas with Random Acts of Christmas Kindness for a couple years now, and I have to say it has been amazing for our family!
We are excited to do it again this year because it’s been such a great way to slow down and focus on the joy of giving, rather than just receiving during the holiday season.
We have found that focusing on kindness for others each day helps banish so many of the I wants that often come around this time of year.
