Thoughtful Thursday (yesterday..since my PC went down last night)

On Thursdays, my family makes it a point to try and be a little extra thoughtful to and of others. Sometimes we will just find random things we can do for random people. We don’t feel the need to be acknowledged by them, for these kind deeds that we do, therefore they are often done anonymously. For instance, we live in the city, so have small yards…and we might wait until a neighbor leaves and run next door or across the street and mow their lawn real quick before they come home. Sometimes it might be a bouquet of flowers for the lady across the street, or cleaning up a neighborhood park.

I have found that often one of the most thoughtful things you can do for someone is simply to smile at them. A smile can mean so much. The way I see it, is that what might take or cost very little for me to do, but for the receiver, it might be a really big deal to them. Seeing the smiles on their faces(if we are so lucky) is more than enough payment in return for our thoughtfulness. (✿◠‿◠)

Today, it was raining, so we didn’t do a whole of anything outside. What we did do today was so much fun and it was also very thoughtful. We went shopping and put together different types of gift baskets for many different types of occasions. These gift baskets and bags will come in perfectly handy for an unexpected birthday party or other last minute gift-giving occasions. Also….readers, don’t fret….some of these gift baskets were made with you in mind….I will be giving some of these baskets away here and there, in-between the books….lol

So readers….I’m wondering what kinds of thoughtful things do you or your family do for others?
