Our Kindness Jar

"One of the most important gifts we can pass on to our children is the ability to show kindness to others." ~Mama Hen
Little Chick and I have started a new tradition - our kindness jar. Whenever we find one another doing an act of kindness we write it down with the date and put it in the jar. Little Chick chose the pumpkins as her special kindness card, I have the heart and Grandma Hen and others write their kind act on a star. We are excited to fill our jar to the rim with kindness! The other day while writing in her journal, Little Chick wrote about the children who are less fortunate. She prays for them every night and has been talking about "giving me as a gift to them when she gets older so that they can can have food, love and learn to read with mommy." What a giving heart Little Chick has and it is so incredibly full of kindness. Her little elf on the shelf notices these acts of kindness and leaves her a note every day. We find her in some fun places. Our Thanksgiving was enjoyable and we are thankful for our many abundant blessings and all the love we have.

Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family 2.) Showing kindness to others and seeing Little Chick's compassionate heart. 3.) Gathering family and friends for the holiday. 4.) My beautiful mom who is always there for us. 5.) Everything that comes with Christmas!


  1. What a sweet idea - very inspiring!

    Enjoy your weekend friend!

  2. Hey MH!
    Hope your doing great. Great pictures and what a great tradition.
    I sent an email back to your Mamma Hen email - wasn't sure if you received it. All is well here. Dealing w/ life's stresses but that shall never cease :-)

  3. Your little Chick is soooo sweet. I hope to pass on this type of kindness to my little boy too. (Too many boys these days are into weapons and fighting. I'm doing my best to keep him away from all the bad examples at school; it's a challenge to say the least.) Life should be about being kind and giving to others. I love this kindness jar. What a wonderful idea!

  4. That is such a sweet idea. Little Chick has a big heart...she must get it from her Mama!
