Day 1 of Giving

Today is December 1st, so it's also my first day of giving. I decided to start with something small and do it right way so I could get the ball rolling.

My tiny thing of giving today was purchasing breakfast for the person behind me in line. It was small, quick, and, whatever they ordered, was surprisingly cheap. Maybe it didn't make that much of a difference in their day, or life, but it made me feel good to surprise someone at 7:30am.

My plan for the next few days:

Dec 2- Decorate my kid's door at school without their knowledge so they come in surprised on Monday.
Dec 3- It's my first Christmas party (for all of the Special Ed team at my school), so I'm trying to think of something to do. I know that I have to bring a dish, but I'm thinking about bringing something extra for the woman who's having us at her home.
Dec 4- This one will be tricky. I work at the group home from 7:30-3 and then at the Buckle from 3-7:30, so there isn't a lot of time to do something. Maybe I can bake at the group home. I could also maybe bake on Friday or Saturday and bring those treats to the Buckle.
Dec 5- This is the day my kids will see their door! The first few days of this week are going to be crazy because it's going to be school, and then immediately after, going to the Buckle for a few hours. I think there's a meeting I can attend on this day for volunteering on a "communication" board. I have to listen to my voicemail again, but if it's on this day, I'm counting it.

I'll post more ideas as I plan them out.
