Mother’s Day will be the one-year anniversary of the first time I ever encouraged my daughter engage in random acts of kindness. We picked up a bunch of carnations at the store and went to our local playground and she happily handed single flowers the moms we encountered. It was awesome to see how happy this simple act made people and I felt really good teaching her about the importance of kindness.
I love doing random acts of kindness any time of the year but doing something around Mother’s Day feels extra special to me. I like the idea of celebrating moms (because MOMS ROCK!) and I like thinking about the day as something that’s not just for me, as one individual mom, but a day for all of us.
