  1. I was away from my computer for a few days, so I’m lagging behind. And again……I did this one before reading the blog! I actually left a tip for the housekeeper in my hotel room! My family doesn’t normally do this, but I had your tags and did it!

  2. Boy each time you do one of these, you realize what a blessing you receive. I printed the tags and when I paid the sweet woman that does cleaning in my home, I wrote a second check and gave it to her with one of the tags indicating she rocks! She was so excited. She said I did not know what you were doing!! So it made my day!

  3. Day 4 is a bit of a challenge for me but I know a group of people helping a co-worker raise money for adoption and they are donating services for love offerings and then giving it all to her and her husband so this is where I will start for the Day 4 kindness gift.

  4. Great idea! Love Arlene’s book, it is really good and practical. I read it over the summer and it was a huge blessing to me and I was able to put several things in practice that I learned from it. I would love to bless someone else with a copy.

  5. #12DaysOfChristmasKindness #ListenLoveRepeat Hello Karen and Arlene, Day Four was a Blessing to our Hair Stylist at A Step Ahead Salon. Annie and Beth appreciated their surprise . They were very delighted to get the surprise and they liked the words YOU ROCK at your JOB and YOU are GREATLY appreciated. God Bless the rest of your week ladies. Thank you Karen and Arlene for LETTING your light SHINE for JESUS.

  6. #12DaysOfChristmasKIndness #ListenLoveRepeat Thank you Karen and Arlene for Hosting Day Four. Our family blessed our hairstylist At A Step Ahead Salon. They were very appreciative of the SURPRISE. They smiled beautiful for the picture. Ladies, Thank you for SHOWING God’s love to others. YOU Both are GREATLY APPRECIATED.

  7. What I love most about these ideas is the note attached. We could easily leave an extra tip but without a word of encouragement the person might just think that we were nice. I don’t know about the rest of you, but in my own nature, I’m quite selfish. It’s only through the work of Jesus in me that over the years, He’s made me less selfish. I love attaching the note because Christ gets the glory, not me.

  8. I met Arlene two years ago at a Hearts at Home conference! :)

    I can up my tip to the Amazon PrimeNOW delivery driver – cause they are speedy!! :)

  9. Tipped my hairdresser just last night!!! I am returning the last week in December to touch up my color… and I will be certain to share more #12daysofChristmaskindness
