Acts of Conscious Giving January 21, 2014


Gemma GraceToday’s act of conscious giving was to help my daughter, who is 7, prepare her own act of conscious giving that she wanted to perform.

I couldn’t be more proud of this kid.  (<<< that is her at her school Halloween party)

We were sitting at dinner tonight, and she told me that when she was out rollerblading, she saw a house that she thought needed a random act of kindness.  I asked her what she would like to do, and she said she would like to give them a Valentine’s Day present.  I asked her what she had in mind, and she said some kind of heart.  So I gave her a few ideas she could do herself (or with minimal guidance from me) and she decided she wanted to make some heart shaped soaps.

I make soaps, and I had some clear melt and pour, so I helped her heat it up and fragrance it and color it, and she poured the molds, and now she has 6 heart shaped soaps she is going to gift to people.

And one very proud Mama.  :)
