Cards of Kindness

2020 been a tough year for everyone, but it also gave us an opportunity to slow down, reflect and appreciate what we have in our lives and look inwards. While home schooling my kids , we often looked at Karuna Virus and found many inspiring acts of kindness stories. As Christmas was around the corner, we decided we wanted to do our own act of kindness. The kids created Christmas cards and gave gifts to the mail man and mail lady, who throughout this whole pandemic have been serving the community, delivering packages and parcels while we stay safe at home. The kids were excited to give the gifts and cards. The receivers were touched by the gesture, and said what made them really happy was the personalised cards from the kids. When the kids heard this their faces really lit up with joy and I reminded them this is how it feels to give, the joy of giving far exceeds the joy of receiving. We then decided to make more Christmas cards with good will wishes and sent it to a care home, hoping it will cheer up some of the residents there especially at a difficult time where they can not see their families. I hope this will now be a yearly thing we do during Christmas, where the kids change their focus from what presents they want to what they can give to others.
