Yesterday I was not able to complete my random act of giving because I was down all day. The fun part of marriage is that you share everything...even sickness. :) It all started with Mark and ended with me, but we had a good day today so I was able to catch up with my random acts of giving.
I completed two days in one and had such a wonderful time! Today I went into a larger city to do some shopping and decided to use some of my stash (Bath and Body Works) for my random acts of giving. I wrapped up 3 gifts to give to each cashier that helped me with my purchases. It was one of the funnest days of giving I have had and will be doing it again in the future.
I was pressed for time and couldn't find my gift bags so I had to settle for large plastic food bags. I wrapped up each gift with a Merry Christmas tract and a Random Act of Giving card, then headed for town.
Each cashier that I purchased something from got a gift and every single one was absolutely shocked and thrilled. My cashier at Kohl's was so surprised that she said she was going to cry. I was touched and she was touched. I had three to give today but was having so much fun that I stopped by Bath and Body Works (with a coupon) to get more stuff to give. It worked out great because during Christmas they offer free gift wrap. What a fun day!
Every year Mark's Uncle sends the most beautiful cards. It came in the mail today and I wanted to show it to you. My camera didn't capture the colors exactly right but it is gorgeous. Uncle D. has such a wonderful eye for beautiful and unique things. I look forward to his Christmas cards every year.
I hope you all had a stress free day! If you were out and about it might have been hard to do. One week left until Christmas! Merry Christmas,
