I have one more to add from my side . . . I grabbed a card to put in an envelope (along with the letter, of course) for my three kids under the Christmas tree this year. When they opened and read it, I asked them to have a meeting together to decide how to use it to give an unexpected gift and make someone smile…
They decided to hide a brand-new snowman in their grandma’s foyer (which is positively FILLED with snowmen during Christmas - I’ll try to grab a pic if I can), so hopefully she’ll notice it and be filled with surprise, wonder, and happiness at how a random snowman wandered in, haha
It was a really nice lesson on doing something anonymously for someone else, without needing any recognition . . . simply for the joy of it.
We got the snowman yesterday, and we’ll place him tomorrow. Here he is, waiting to be sent on his mission:
