Day 17’s “Random Act of Christmas Kindness” is all about our Senior Citizens. Up until today, I hadn’t baked any type of Christmas cookies or candy. And then it occurred to me. Why not put a “goody bag” together and secretly give them to some of our senior citizens? So we (my daughter and I) started baking. We made fudge, Ritz cracker cookies, pretzel bites and Russian teacakes.
After the baking was complete, we put our baked goods into “goody bags,” that could be hung on senior citizens door handles at a local senior living facility.
And what could be more perfect? Having my granddaughters help with the project. What a great opportunity to show them what compassion and kindness are all about. They were both excited! I needed to remind them we were going to hand out the goody bags in secret. It was pretty cute watching them as they were walking around quietly putting the goodie bags on the door handles. I am pleased to announce they succeeded and did a great job!
