  1. Love this idea. I use to have an elderly neighbor that Any time the holidays came around, or we just had extra food, We would drop her plate and make sure she was taken care of. Especially if we were making a grocery trip. I think this kind of kindness has been lost in the rush of things. But it is an important one to do because so many people are alone during the holidays.

  2. A friend’s brother just passed away and I know it will be a difficult holiday season. I will write a special note for him to help encourage him during the holiday season.

  3. This is such a good idea. This week a friend and I are going to bake brownies. I’ll have to give some to a neighbor who I heard gets depressed this time of year. It’s sure to brighten her day.

  4. Hi. I had noticed that an elderly lady from church was not there today and I haven’t seen her for a couple weeks. I really need to follow up on that. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. #12DayOfChristmasKindness #ListenLoveRepeat Day 7 Karen and Ruth I wish I could just see you both in person and tell you all about .Ithe God sightings the last seven days. The Lord has been amazing for each and every day. To God be the Glory Today is JOY in the season of advent our visit with Connie was very nice. Our youngest daughter took the picture for Day 7. Our daughter enjoyed visiting with Connie’s dog, Biscuit. God Bless your week Karen and Ruth. ((HUGS))) to both of you

  6. One of my favorite ideas. Nothing spreads kindness like homemade treats. The shut-ins are most appreciative.

  7. Love this one!!! I love baking with the kids and then having them deliver them to someones door or hand them to people at church.

  8. This one hits close to home as we’re recognizing how many family members we have who just can’t get out like they used to.

  9. I really love this idea. Holidays can be hard, but they are especially hard when you lose loved ones close to the holidays. My Mother died a few days after Christmas and my Mother-in-law died at the beginning of December the following year. Those were hard years, so my heart goes out to those who lose loved ones around the holidays.
