random kindness

last night for family home evening
I wanted to do some random acts of kindness with my kids.
so we headed to walmart-
with some quarters,
and taped them to the candy machines,
and wrote merry christmas on the tape.
i think my kids would be so happy to find that,
so hopefully we can make some other kids happy.
I thought we could put carts away for shoppers,
but it wasn't too busy when we were there-
most people coming out were just holding bags,
and there was a worker in the parking lot collecting carts, so we didn't do that.
we did head to tim hortons, and bought some tim bits- we took one box to the fire station/ambulance place, but the doors were locked,
then right when we were wondering what to do,
an ambulance came and parked,
so the girls and I went and talked to the super sweet, (and cute) young EMT- he was so kind to us and grateful for the treats!

then we headed to the police station
that was also locked,
but we picked up the phone by the door,
and a nice police officer came and took our treats.
he was very kind to us too,
and seemed grateful.
it was a fun evening,
and hopefully we helped others find some joy!

What a perfect idea! Your kids will definitely remember that when they're older.
